This is a Free #NCAAB play on the Miami #Hurricanes.
Duke has struggled since the start of conference play, losing three of five games. Their most recent home win was a rather uninspiring victory over Boston College, hanging on to win by a score of 93-82. The bookmakers are asking them to win today's game against ACC rivals Miami by a double-digit margin, and history suggests that might be tough. The Canes have won the last two meetings outright, including a 90-74 win at Cameron Indoor Stadium last January. Miami has always given Duke a tough game, and the Hurricanes are 7-0-1 in their last eight games as the visitor in this series. Duke is still banged up, as senior forward Amile Jefferson has missed the last two games, and isn't likely to play tonight. Jefferson leads the team in rebounding, averaging over 10 rebounds per game. In the two games he's missed, Duke has averaged 31 rebounds per game, well below it's season average of 36.4. Grayson Allen scored 23 points in the loss to Louisville, but committed six turnovers. The junior guard is walking on thin ice, and every move he makes is being scrutinized. All things considered, I think this Duke team is in no position to be such a huge favorite versus a conference rival. Take MIA. GL, Jesse Schule
