Trends

Duke is 1-10 ATS in their last 11 games following an ATS win and 7-15 ATS in their last 22 games following a win. The under is 5-1 in Duke’s last 6 neutral site games. Miami is 7-0-1 ATS in their last 8 Friday games and 18-6 ATS in their last 24 games following an ATS loss. The under is 9-2 in Miami’s last 11 games following an ATS loss. The underdog is 4-1 ATS in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings. 

Pick

Duke comes into this game playing very well and they have won seven games in a row. Miami has won five of their last six games, but they almost allowed Wake Forest to come back on them at the end of their game yesterday. Miami has the better stats when looking at the full season, but this Duke team is playing great right now. I think Duke keeps rolling and gets the win here. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
