Duke Makes Quick Turnaround After Beating Tar Heels

The Duke Blue Devils are coming in off an emotional win in a big rivalry game vs. North Carolina Tar Heels just 39 hours ago. The Blue Devils are now 19-5 SU and 10-13 ATS. They are 12-1 at Cameron Indoor Stadium this year and currently in 5th place in the ACC.

Duke Continues Their Hot Streak

Clemson has not won at Cameron Indoor Stadium since 1995, and in the history of the ACC matchup, have only won three other times in 1976, 1977 and 1984. Duke’s Grayson Allen, Luke Kennard and Jayson Tatum will be too strong for Clemson to win this game, especially on the road in hostile territory.

Many people are giving out Clemson simply for the fact that Duke is making the quick turnaround after beating North Carolina Thursday night but those same cappers are forgetting one simple thought……when it comes to tournament time, they make the same turnaround and if any coach can get their team back up emotionally ready for a quick turnaround game, Coach K can do it! We are playing a 1 Unit Play on Duke -11.
