#15 Duke has battled plenty of injuries and the fatigue finally looks like it caught up to them.
With time to rest, they’ll be much more prepared as they take on Florida State here on Thursday.
Florida State needs a marquee win as they are certainly on the bubble right now.
Florida St. Seminoles
Florida State is certainly on the outside looking in. It’s going to take some wins over ranked opponents, combined with a deep ACC Tournament run or this team will find themselves in the NIT or even worse.
FSU had one certainly get out of their hands as they led by 10 points in the 2nd half, but blew that and fell to Virginia Tech by 10. The complete switch in power came from the Seminoles defense collapsing. They allowed Va tech to shoot 61% from the field and scoring 46 points in just the 2nd half alone.
The Noles have now dropped 4 straight games and poor defense has been the story throughout. Florida state has allowed an average of 80.3 points per game during the skid and has seen teams shoot 51.4% from the field. From behind the arc, the opposition is shooting 45.7%.
Florida State has lost 8 straight to Top 25 teams on the road.
Duke Blue Devils
Duke comes in off a loss to Louisville, but take nothing away from this team.
The Blue Devils played with just 6 healthy scholarship players against Louisville and even held a 12 point lead, but saw the game completely get away from them in the 2nd half. Duke continued to get technical fouls and turn the ball over in their collapse.
Duke will have both Matt Jones and Derryck Thornton back from injuries, which will significantly help the team with depth and scoring.
The Blue Devils, who were once a bubble team, have really made a push back into the tournament and will now be playing for a seed. They currently sit 6th in the ACC, but are just 2 games behind the top spot. They also currently hold the tiebreaker with first place UNC and will get one more chance at them at home.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Seminoles are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Thursday games.
- Seminoles are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 road games.
- Seminoles are 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS loss.
- Blue Devils are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 home games vs. a team with a losing road record.
- Blue Devils are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games.
Free Florida St. Seminoles vs. Duke Blue Devils CBB Prediction:
Down to just 6 scholarship players against Louisville, Duke led by 12 and should have won the game. The refs played a giant hand in that 2nd half, which led to a lot of frustration.
Right now, with two key players back, this Duke team is going to be much more deep and quicker. Look for Duke to really have no problems here as FSU just doesn’t have enough weapons to keep up with this high scoring Blue Devils team, especially at home.
