Wofford vs Duke Final NCAAB Betting Analysis:

Wofford’s upset win over North Carolina stands out. But the Tar Heels have lost 4 in a row. They’re 1-3 ATS in their last 4. The only cover happened against Gonzaga. Even then, the Heels covered by a single point in a 13-point loss.

The Blue Devils have hit their stride. They beat Michigan State by 12 points as a +6 ½  underdog. The Dookies took down ACC rival Virginia Tech 77-63 as a -6 ½ chalk. Duke is 6-1 ATS at home. The spread intimidates. It doesn’t intimidate enough to back the Terriers on Thursday night. Go with the Blue Devils.
