12:00 PM EST. While it might seem difficult to place a bet on a team that has lost six straight at home and 11 overall, we see it as an opportunity to buy low on the Red Storm. It doesn't get much bigger than a home game with Duke, and we have no doubt that the Johnnies will be ready.
Duke needs no introduction, as they are a true college basketball blue blood and arguably the most recognizable team in the market. You are often going to pay a premium when backing a known ranked program and today is no different. Sure, the Dukies are great, but how motivated will it be to stumble out of bed for a noon EST start on the road today when a date with North Carolina is on the horizon. This is not a good situation to be spotting double digits on the road. This one jump starts one of our favorite weekends of the year, as Las Vegas is jammed to the rafters with people in town for Super Bowl weekend. What that means not only in Vegas but online too, is that that millions of extra dollars will be wagered over this weekend by folks that bet on college basketball twice a year. They bet it this weekend and they bet during March Madness and they’ll pay extra to get behind well known or ranked programs. We’ll try and take advantage of that with this game and the others in this section. That is our main philosophy for today.
