The road trip continues for the Duke basketball team in South Bend, Indiana.
It is a quick turnaround for the Duke basketball program as the No. 9 Blue Devils (17-3, 7-2 ACC) have traveled from Durham to Louisville, Louisville to Durham, and Durham to South Bend in the span of 72 hours.
Notre Dame (14-6, 7-2 ACC) will welcome Duke into town on Monday night as the Fighting Irish look for another signature victory on the season.
The Blue Devils were able to keep Louisville at bay on Saturday afternoon before a strong closing effort allowed Mike Krzyzewski’s team to pull away from the Cardinals. Meanwhile, the Irish withstood a late second-half charge from Virginia to pick up a home victory.
Notre Dame has not lost in its own building this season, most notably picking up a win over then-No. 10 Kentucky on December 11.
Monday’s game was originally scheduled for January 1 but had to be postponed due to health and safety protocols.
Duke has won its last three games in Purcell Pavilion, all by double digits. And prior to last season’s loss to the Irish in Cameron Indoor Stadium, the program had won its last seven games against Notre Dame.
Duke Injury Report vs. Notre Dame
It remains unclear whether or not Duke will have Trevor Keels available on Monday night as the freshman guard still recovers from a lower leg injury suffered against Florida State on January 18.
Keels lightly participated in shootaround prior to Saturday’s game against Louisville and was not publicly ruled out until hours before tipoff.
The coaching staff continues to express that its starting guard is getting closer to a return, but it’s still not known when that return will actually be. It could be Monday night in a limited capacity.
Trevor Keels is averaging 11.9 points per game this season.
Duke vs. Notre Dame Odds: Spread, Over/Under & Betting Pick
WynnBET’s College Basketball Odds lists Duke as a 5.5-point road favorite against Notre Dame while the over/under is set at 143.5.
Duke jumped out of the gates strong against Louisville before the Blue Devils allowed the Cardinals to creep back into the game and make things much more interesting.
Notre Dame is a better team than Louisville, specifically shooting the ball, but the Irish lack the pure athletes and talent in the paint to match up with the Blue Devils physically.
If Duke is able to keep the shooters on the Irish in check and keep Mark Williams and Paolo Banchero out of foul trouble, fans could see Mike Krzyzewski leaving his final trip to South Bend with a victory.
We will take Duke to win and cover the spread while the total will go over the number listed.
