College Basketball Betting – Owls In Over Their Heads At Duke

Mason Plumlee and Miles Plumlee hope to keep the Blue Devils' home streak aliveCollege basketball betting players will usually see the home team favored when it comes to hoops, and especially when the home team is Duke, who have won 34 in a row at Cameron Indoor Stadium. The next team to try and snap that streak is Temple, who have lost eight straight overall against the Blue Devils, and they’ll have an uphill climb on Wednesday.

Temple Duke Betting – Wednesday, 7:00 PM ET

The No.24 Owls (21-5, 11-2) jumped out to a 12-point halftime lead and cruised to a 66-52 victory at home over Saint Joseph’s, led by 17 points from Ramone Moore. Lavoy Allen added 14 points and 12 boards to become the leading rebounder in Temple history, and he is now the line big man in the Owls’ lineup with Micheal Eric on the shelf.

Guard Scootie Randall also sat this game out with a fracture in his foot. At the trade deadline NHL teams will be looking to stock their team in case of injury or if they have any current injuries, and even though Randall will be back for the Blue Devils, losing Eric really hurts because it makes the Owls a very small team.

The No.1 Blue Devils (25-2, 12-1) returned to the top of the rankings after a 79-57 win at home over Georgia Tech, getting another big game from Nolan Smith, who had 28 points, seven rebounds and four assists. Most of the preseason hype surrounded Kyle Singler, who chipped in with 15 points and nine rebounds, but Smith will likely win the ACC Player of the Year for his performances and Singler has happily sat shotgun after leading the Blue Devils to last year’s national title. Duke struggled with Georgia Tech’s physical play early on, but a technical foul from coach Mike Krzyzewski seemed to spark the Blue Devils.

Betting services will definitely favor the Blue Devils at home, where they are 8-8 ATS this season, but they’ve also been favored by an average of 19.1 points at home this season, and only once have they been favored by less than 10 points at Cameron. These two have met nine times since 1996, with the Blue Devils posting an 8-1 SU mark, along with a 5-4 ATS record.

The Blue Devils had more size inside before Eric went down with his knee injury, but without him the Owls will be battling in vain with only Allen. The Blue Devils have the Plumlee brothers, Mason and Miles, along with Singler, and that will cause the Owls to collapse. That will sign their death warrant because we all know how deadly the Blue Devils are from three-point land. Look for Duke to cover the sports betting spread in this contest.
