Duke Blue Devils Odds - Blue Devils still not a serious Championship threat

Posted by Washington Tucker on 2/4/2014 4:23:56 AM

The Duke Blue Devils odds to win the ACC are decent, but everyone knows they are a long shot to win a National Championship. While they have a number of talented players, they don’t have the complete roster to dominate. With coaching and craftiness, they’ll be a Sweet Sixteen team, but online betting cappers will know that it isn't the same as the old days.

Duke Blue Devils odds: +250 to win ACC

  • Coach K will again milk the most out of his talent
  • Kyle Singler is a preseason All-American
  • Duke still a brick short of a load for a National Championship

Duke Blue Devils odds maker breakdown: THE COACHING
There is no question that Mike Krzyzewski is one of the best coaches in college basketball. When it comes to X’s and O’s on the floor, few coaches can match wits. But it should be pointed out that the Blue Devils aren’t the same dominant team they used to be, which also falls on Krzyzewksi’s shoulders from the recruiting end. Their rivals in North Carolina continue to get the more talented players, and that’s why NCAA basketball betting fans haven’t seen Duke make a serious run at a Championship recently.

Duke Blue Devils odds maker breakdown: THE STARS
The center of success in Duke will be Kyle Singler this year, who is a preseason All-American. Singler should get far more help upfront, because the Blue Devils are deeper there than they have been in previous years. The addition of Mason Plumlee in the recruiting class adds some muscle, and with the development of his brother Miles, this rotation could finally match up with North Carolina. They’ll have to carry the load as the backcourt isn’t particularly strong.

The Blue Devils won’t be challenged in the early going, but they may have a matchup with Arizona State in their tip-off tournament. Aside from that, contests with Wisconsin and Gonzaga are all that really looms before the New Year.

Duke Blue Devils odds maker breakdown: THE OUTLOOK
The sportsbook odds makers know that the Blue Devils should have a decent team this year, and they’re probably the second best team in the ACC. If North Carolina has trouble reloading, Duke will be step in to win the conference. But aside from that, the Blue Devils aren’t ready to make a jump to the Final Four quite yet. They have a lot to prove before we put the faith in them to accomplish that.
