Cuz UK looked not so great vs Maryland.  UK wins tonight, way too athletic for duke. I'll take the points most likely

I'm always amused when people actually put stock in rankings, especially in November.

Ignore the numbers. They are truly meaningless.

You seem fairly new to gambling, dont get caught up in rankings, that has nothing to do with how lines are made.

I do believe it will be a close game.

I like Kentucky with the points at home.  However, I think they'll win SU.

The game is in Atlanta. Please guys, don't bet if you don't know even where the games are being played. Jesus.

doubt duke gets bet down here. Plum is a beast and I'd take him vs UK's bigs with inexperience...

this game will fall into guard play no doubt, due to both teams having new and untested back court.

Seth Curry - Senior (31 mpg)
Tyler Thornton - Junior (22 mpg)
Quinn Cook - Sophomore (12 mpg)

Curry started last year and part of his sophomore year. Thornton played at least 24 minutes in Duke's last 8 games last season. Cook had meaningful minutes in every game.

I must be missing the newness of Duke's backcourt.

Honestly, I've never seen a day like today where people are just pulling garbage out of their fools that is flat-out wrong.
