Duke vs Notre Dame Prediction & Pick

Notre Dame's hot start to the season was a benefit from a weak schedule prior to conference play more than anything else. The Fighting Irish have slid all the way down to 13th in the ACC with a 2-12 record (10-15 overall). They rank 210th in the country when it comes to average scoring margin (-1.7).

Duke was on the right track prior to its last two losses and that's why it is a big home favorite here. Of course, it helps that the Blue Devils average a reliable 77.3 points per home game and shoot 45.8% at Cameron Indoor Stadium. Look for freshman Kyle Filipowski to torment the Fighting Irish defense.

Duke is riding a 10-game home winning streak, too, so back the Blue Devils with confidence tonight.

Final Score Prediction: Duke: 78 | Notre Dame: 62

Duke vs Notre Dame Best Bet

There's a reason Filipowski sticks out in this matchup. Notre Dame is allowing an opposing two-point shooting percentage of 53.3% (No. 311 in NCAA) and just gave up 25 free throw attempts to Virginia Tech on Saturday. Duke's frontcourt should have no issues getting to the basket on Tuesday night.

Notre Dame is a dismal 4-14 against the spread (ATS) in its last 18 games overall and 1-8 ATS in its last nine games against Duke. The Blue Devils have already covered a few big spreads this season, including a 43-point win over Georgia Tech as a 9-point favorite. They know how to get the job done.

Bet: Duke Blue Devils -11.5 (-120)
