Texas Tech vs Duke March Madness Prediction & Best Bet

The Texas Tech vs Duke projection on numberFire gives the Blue Devils a 55.2% chance of winning, which makes underdog Duke the best bet in this game. The -108 moneyline gives the Blue Devils an implied win probability of 52.6% — noticeably lower than numberFire's 55.2% projection.

Neither team has had the toughest March Madness path this year. Texas Tech has defeated No. 14 Montana State and No. 6 Notre Dame, while Duke has overcome No. 15 CS Fullerton and No. 7 Michigan State to get to the Sweet 16.

Although their seedings are close, Texas Tech comes in at No. 6 in the KenPom rankings, while Duke sits at No. 10. Having said that, the Blue Devils have KenPom's fourth-best adjusted offense, which may be too much for the Red Raiders to deal with.

Oddsmakers have been flip-flopping between both schools throughout the week, however, Duke seems to be the safer betting value pick this time around.
