The Miami Hurricanes will play arguably their toughest game of the season when they make their way into Cameron Indoor Stadium to take on the Duke Blue Devils this afternoon.


Naturally, the Blue Devils are the overwhelming 16-point favorites in this one, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. If you plan to place a bet on this game, it never hurts to consult an expert or two before doing so.


Here are a few expert predictions for Saturday's showdown between Miami and Duke.


CBS Sports

The expert panel at CBS Sports all agree that Duke will easily win straight up. However, three of the five experts believe that Miami will cover the spread once it's all said and done, citing that the team hasn't been as dominant without ​Zion Williamson


Canes Warning

Alan Rubenstein, of Canes Warning, isn't high on Miami's chances to take down Duke on the road, even if the Blue Devils take the court without Williamson, thanks to an imperfect 0-8 road record this season.. 


ESPN Basketball Power Index Matchup Predictor

ESPN's Basketball Power Index leans heavily toward the Blue Devils, who have an overwhelming 97.4 percent chance to get the W in front of the Cameron Crazies. 


It should come as no surprise that all of the experts are in Duke's corner to come out on top in this one, but three of the five that picked the game with the spread think Miami will cover. Place your bets accordingly, folks.
