Michigan State vs Duke CBB Prediction and Betting Odds

The #6 Michigan State Spartans travel to Cameron Indoor Stadium to take on the #1 ranked Duke Blue Devils as part of the Big Ten/ ACC Challenge. The Spartans (5-1) take on Duke (6-0) for the first time since a 10-point Michigan State victory during the 2005 NCAA Tournament. The Spartans come into the game off of a disappointing loss to Connecticut in the EA Sports Maui Invitational while the ultra-guard-talented Blue Devils come in off of a 98-71 road victory at Oregon.

Michigan State started this season ranked #2 behind Duke in most of the major polls, magazines and newspapers. But, a disappointing loss to Connecticut in Maui dropped the Spartans from the top five. A 73-55 victory over Tennessee Tech served as the preamble before the Spartans boarded their plane to Durham.

The Duke Blue Devils are the reigning national champions and have one of the most electrifying backcourts in the country with senior guard Nolan Smith and super-talented freshman Kyrie Irving. Duke has covered the spread in four of their five games this year and has won every single game by double-digits with the exception of their tilt
against Marquette—an 82-77 victory in Kansas City.

Michigan State vs Duke Prediction:

Spread Prediction: For whatever reason this year, Michigan State has been utterly pathetic against guarding the three-point shot. Opponents are connecting at a 35.6% clip which puts the Spartans defense in that category at 231st in the country. The Duke offense has been bombing away from three-point land and is 9th in the country shooting the triple at 44.4 %. If the Spartans can’t get out and deny Duke shooters, then it could be a terribly long night. Duke is 9-2 ATS in their last 11 and 6-2 ATS in their last eight versus teams from the Big Ten. We’ll take that to continue.

Prediction = Duke -10
