Why Georgia Tech Will Win

When NCAA football betting gurus turn from football and move to basketball as their college sports point of focus, they will notice that Duke is a team in a rut right now, for reasons that relate to on-court and off-court factors. On the court, Duke was struggling on defense for the past few weeks, finding it hard to lock down teams such as Santa Clara, even at home. The Blue Devils did a lot of really good work in early December, but since then they've tailed off to a certain extent.

Then came the injury to forward Ryan Kelly, which has sidelined one of the Blue Devils' important interior defenders and rebounders. Without Kelly, Duke was very vulnerable against North Carolina State this past Saturday. The Blue Devils trailed for most of the second half and were decisively outplayed down the stretch. North Carolina State big man Richard Howell scored 16 points and snapped down 18 rebounds for the Wolfpack, who outclassed Duke near the rim. With poor form in general, Duke is and has been shaky over the past month. With Kelly out of the lineup, the Blue Devils have to adjust. Georgia Tech, if it can knock down shots, will certainly have a chance to win this game.

Why Duke Will Win

Legal online sports betting analysts are going to pick Duke in this game because Georgia Tech is awful. It was one thing for Georgia Tech to lose to Miami and then North Carolina State, two very likely NCAA tournament teams. However, the Yellow Jackets truly lost the plot this past Saturday at home when they blew a late multi-possession lead to lowly Virginia Tech. This year, Virginia Tech is not the bubble team it had been in previous seasons under former coach Seth Greenberg.

This season, Virginia Tech is going to finish in the bottom tier of the Atlantic Coast Conference. For Georgia Tech to lose to Virginia Tech is an embarrassment. The outcome makes the Yellow Jackets 0-3 in the ACC, serving as a powerful and telling indication of just how far they've fallen. Duke doesn't have to be at its best to win this game. The Blue Devils, for all the ways in which they are banged up, and in all the ways they're not hitting on all cylinders at this point in time, are still deeper, tougher and more talented. Playing at home in Durham, N.C., the Blue Devils should be able to dictate the tempo and contain the Yellow Jackets' offense.

Who Will Win

This is a blowout in the making. Georgia Tech is simply an abysmal team. The Yellow Jackets have done absolutely nothing to inspire any confidence at this point in time. Pick Duke.
