The Bulldogs are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600 and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games following a straight up win of more than 20 points. The Blue Devils are 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games following a straight up of more than 20 points.

I’m expecting a lot of points to be scored in this game as don’t get mistaken by The Citadel’s defensive statistics, this is a team that likes to run and gun and can give up plenty of points. Duke has looked outstanding to start the season offensively with their trio of Wendell Moore Jr., Paolo Banchero, & Trevor Keels who currently has the Blue Devils offense ranked 69th in scoring & 54th in FG%. The Citadel is a decent team that lives by their scoring and as I expect both teams to be able to put up plenty of points in this one, I think the play here is with the Over. Good Luck!
