The Duke basketball team can punch its ticket to the Final Four on Saturday night.
The stakes are always high in the NCAA Tournament, but the Duke basketball program has a chance to punch its ticket to the Final Four on Saturday night.
The Blue Devils will take on the Arkansas Razorbacks after both teams put together outstanding efforts in the Sweet 16.
Arkansas upset top-seeded Gonzaga, 74-68, behind a dazzling defensive showing from the Razorbacks, which had the Bulldogs out of sync from the opening tipoff. JD Notae led the way with 21 points but needed 29 shots to reach that total.
Despite Notae’s struggles from the floor, the other Razorbacks were extremely efficient from the field, which propelled Arkansas to victory.
Duke needed another comeback in the final five minutes to take down Texas Tech, and it was a similar formula from its game against Michigan State.
Paolo Banchero and Jeremy Roach took the game over in the final minutes to lead the Blue Devils into the Elite Eight, 78-73.
Duke Injury Report vs. Arkansas

Duke vs. Arkansas Odds: Spread, Over/Under & Betting Pick
WynnBET’s College Basketball Odds lists Duke as a 4-point favorite against Arkansas while the total is set at 147.5.
Arkansas is coming off the major upset victory over Gonzaga, in which the Razorbacks were able to get Chet Holmgren into foul trouble and completely took the Bulldog guards out of the game.
Gonzaga did have an advantage inside against Arkansas, and Duke should be able to exploit that as well with Paolo Banchero and Mark Williams.
Saturday will be an intense battle between two outstanding teams that have performed very well thus far in the NCAA Tournament, but we will take the Blue Devils to cover and win outright with the total staying under the number listed.
