Pick 34:- Duke ML (-170)

Duke @ Tennessee

The Duke Blue Devils are about to dominate the Tennessee Volunteers in their upcoming NCAA showdown, and Pine Sports is here to tell you why you should put your money on them. Let's work together to win some bets and make some serious cash! 

March Madness is in full swing, and we're hyped to dive into the highly anticipated matchup between the Duke Blue Devils and the Tennessee Volunteers. Duke is the team to back, and here's why.

First off, Duke is on a 10-game winning streak, and they haven't lost in over a month. That's the kind of energy you want to ride when placing your bets. Meanwhile, Tennessee has dropped two of their last four games, and they're struggling without point guard Zakai Zeigler, who's out with a torn ACL. The Vols barely survived their first-round game against Louisiana, shooting poorly from beyond the arc and the free-throw line.

Duke, on the other hand, crushed Oral Roberts in their first-round game, showcasing their offensive prowess. With a KenPom rating of 17 overall, 41 on offense, and 15 on defense, the Blue Devils are a well-rounded team that's tough to beat.

Now let's talk about the players. Duke's leading scorer, Kyle Filipowski, is a force to be reckoned with. He's been on fire lately, averaging 20.3 points in the four games prior to the tournament. Expect him to be heavily involved in the matchup against Tennessee, making it even harder for the Vols to keep up.

Tennessee's top scorer, Santiago Vescovi, had a rough game against Louisiana, and the Vols will need him to step up big time if they want to have a chance against Duke. But here's the thing: Duke's offense is just too strong for Tennessee's defense to contain. The Blue Devils have been lighting up the scoreboard, and with players like Jeremy Roach stepping up and scoring 23 points in the last two games, they have multiple weapons at their disposal.

So, what does this all mean for you, our loyal Pine Sports bettors? Duke is currently a 3-point favorite on DraftKings Sportsbook, and we believe they'll not only cover the spread but potentially secure a double-digit victory. Tennessee's best chance to win is to lock down defensively and shorten the game, which is great for those looking to bet the under on the total set at 128.5.

In conclusion, the Duke Blue Devils are the team to back in this NCAA showdown. With their impressive winning streak, offensive firepower, and key players stepping up, they're set to crush the Tennessee Volunteers and advance to the Sweet 16. Let's work together to win some bets and make some serious cash, Pine Sports fam!
