Georgia Tech vs Duke betting odds – Blue Devils will get revenge for previous loss to Georgia Tech

NCAA Basketball Odds: Pick West Virginia

While the Super Bowl odds are the main story right now, college basketball is on the main menu throughout the week. The Duke Blue Devils are still among the best in the ACC but that’s not saying much anymore considering North Carolina is stumbling and the conference is generally weak. A win against No. 16 Georgia Tech will help with credibility but unless it is definitive, nobody will really change their minds about Duke being a paper tiger in the March Madness tournament.

WHAT: College basketball betting
WHEN: Thursday, February 4th, 7:00 PM ET
WHERE: Cameron Indoor Stadium – Durhan, NC

KEY STAT: Devils are still undefeated at home this year.

The Storyline – Georgia Tech vs Duke betting odds breakdown
The Duke Blue Devils haven’t won three straight since conference play began, which is really biting into their credibility. Sure, they have a taller, stronger lineup than in years past but a recent loss to Georgetown squashed any beliefs that this team is a serious power play in the NCAA Tournament.

Meanwhile, Georgia Tech is ranked in the Top 25 but nobody is taking them too seriously either. The Yellow Jackets have a good chance to win the ACC, but does it mean much too online betting cappers when Duke is so-so and the North Carolina Tar Heels aren’t competitive. Paul Hewitt’s team deserves credit but unless they can get a win on the road in Duke, nobody is too scared of this team.

Offensive Matchups – Georgia Tech vs Duke betting odds breakdown
The Yellow Jackets average 16.2 turnovers per game on the road so if they don’t tighten that up, they are going to get blown out at Cameron Indoor Stadium. This team is very deep with nine players in the rotation and Gani Lawal is playing very well right now. Lawal has scored in double-figures seven times in January.

The Blue Devils have a good offensive unit and they finally have interior depth and strength. Previous Duke teams were solely perimeter threats but now Coach Krzyzewski’s squad has some big bodies inside. Miles Plumlee and Brian Zoubek are the big men and when they are playing well, Duke is hard to stop.

Defensive Matchups – Georgia Tech vs Duke betting odds breakdown

The Yellow Jackets are a decent defensive squad but they don’t always play consistently. The Yellow Jackets have had some big wins this year and some disappointing losses. They looked good in wins against Duke and Wake Forest, then choked in losses to Virginia and Georgia. This team needs to become consistent to win on the road.

Meanwhile, Duke is a far different team playing at home than on the road. All four of their losses came on the road while they have yet to lose at home this year. The Cameron Crazies feed that defense and they make it really tough on anyone coming in to their sea of blue.
