Miami is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 Saturday games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 road games. The over is 5-0 in Miami’s last 5 games. Duke is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games and 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 home games. The over is 13-6-1 in Duke’s last 20 Saturday games. The home team is 6-2 ATS in these two teams last 8 meetings.

Both of these teams have been red hot to start the season, but I still expect Duke to win easily here. Miami has not played well defensively, which should allow Duke to put up a lot of points. Duke also has the rebounding advantage in the game. I am taking Duke to cover the big spread.
