The Plugs Game Prediction

💎 DUKE -14.5 -110

  • Louisville comes into this game really struggling this season and they have lost six of their last seven games! I know this is a lot of points and I know they will be at home for this game, but The Cardinals have allowed 90, 86, and 89 points in their last three games and will be facing a high scoring Duke offense team that is smelling blood in the water tonight! Duke is coming off of a disappointing loss to Pittsburgh at home, but they had won eight games in a row prior to that loss. This Louisville team is not good and they are only shooting 43.6% from the field. Take Duke to win big here with no issues at all!
