The Oregon Ducks and Duke Blue Devils both held to form in their first two games of the tournament and now meet in the Sweet 16 on Thursday night.
Both teams needed to hold off late rallies from Yale (vs. Duke) and St. Joe’s (vs. Oregon) to advance.
Duke Blue Devils
The defending champions had to work extra hard to advance past their first two games, but behind their incredible shooting combined with Plumlee inside, the Blue Devils have been able to stay poised and advance.
Duke trailed at the half in their opening round game against UNC Wilmington, but behind an early 2nd half run, the Blue Devils pulled ahead and held on late.
In their Round of 32 game, it looked like it would be smooth sailing. Duke led by 23 at the half, but that lead quickly evaporated in the 2nd half. Yale got as close as 3, but Duke hit some clutch free throws and held off the rally.
Duke has failed to cover in both games, continuing their trend of struggling ATS on neutral courts. They are now 1-7 ATS this season.
The Ducks opened as the #1 seed in the West Region, getting the chance to play close to home. With the way their fans have traveled, the Ducks played essentially 2 home games in the Round of 64 and Round of 32.
Oregon now will look to take their fast paced offense into this one as they were forced into playing St. Joe’s game for about 36 minutes yesterday. At about the 4 minute mark in the 2nd half, the Ducks started to pick the pace up and with 2 clutch threes, they pulled away.
This will prove to be an interesting one for the Ducks as the Blue Devils like to play fast paced, up tempo too. On the season Oregon averaged nearly 80 points per game while Duke was above 81.
With Oregon allowing just 68 points per game, they may not want to go full speed here as it could play into favor for the Blue Devils.
CBB Betting Trends:

- Under is 6-2 in DUKE last 8 NCAA Tournament games.
- ORE are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall.
