Virginia Tech at Duke College Basketball Betting

December 1, 2010 NCAA Basketball

College basketball betting favors Duke on Sunday as they host Virginia Tech in ACC action.

The Blue Devils continue to rise up the national rankings and come into this game in the Top 10.  They have won six of the last eight against Virginia Tech overall and they are 5-3 against the NCAA basketball betting line in those games.

College basketball betting last saw these teams meeting about a year ago as Duke won 72-65.  The last time they met at Duke it was a 69-44 rout in college basketball betting for the Blue Devils.  Duke has won three of the last four at home against Virginia Tech but they are just 2-2 against the NCAA basketball betting line.

Duke is rolling along in the ACC but Virginia Tech is no slouch as they are alone in second place behind Duke in the ACC.  They could be the one team to give the Blue Devils a game. Malcolm Delaney leads the ACC in scoring at 20.2 points per game. Virginia Tech is coming off a big win on Tuesday as they defeated Wake Forest 87-83.  The Hokies also have Dorenzo Hudson who is averaging 14 points per game.

There are only two teams in the ACC that are unbeaten at home. Duke is one of those teams and Virginia Tech is the other.  The Hokies are 5-2 against the college basketball betting odds on the road this season.  The Hokies come into this game having won five straight and they look to be the only team that might be able to give Duke a game in college basketball betting at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

Duke has been excellent at home this season going 10-3 against the NCAA basketball betting odds.  The Blue Devils also come into this college basketball betting game on a five-game winning streak.  Duke is now 11th in the country in scoring and they have a very balanced attack in college basketball betting. The Blue Devils are led by Jon Scheyer and Kyle Singler.  The one weakness that Duke has is that they are not very deep. The starters carry this club and if they get into any foul trouble they are in trouble. That is something to keep in mind for this NCAA basketball betting game against Virginia Tech and down the road as the Blue Devils play in the NCAA Tournament.
