Duke Blue Devils | ACC (Coastal)

Overview

Conference Analysis
Win Division (+1050), Win Conference (+6600)
SSA Model Pick: None
Cutcliffe has done an excellent job with a program that has historically struggled and is rated a top 25 coach in the SSA coach ratings. But Cutcliffe has only posted two winning records in conference play in 10 seasons here and his loan title game appearance came back in 2013. Duke will upset someone for sure, but they won’t get enough upsets to make an ACC title game appearance.

Win Total Analysis
6.5 wins (+120/-140)
SSA Model Pick: Over (Low Confidence)
The model’s pick here is strictly based on the juice. Southpoint set Duke at 6.5 wins and we have them at 6.5 wins. But a coin-flip with plus money means it’s worth taking a gamble on the Blue Devils.
