Duke at Pittsburgh odds, lines, picks and predictions
Duke 75, Pittsburgh 64
Against the spread
The Panthers are 4-0 ATS in their last four games following a straight-up loss of more than 20 points, and they’re in a likable spot here.
With Duke playing its third straight game away from Cameron Indoor Stadium, peg this contest against mercurial Pitt as having enough of a chance for landing somewhere in the Devils by 10-or-12 range.
TAKE PITTSBURGH +14.5 (-108).
Three out of the last four Pitt home games have hit the Over. Duke has been a solid Over play the last few weeks, and Over tickets have cashed in six of its last eight.
BACK THE OVER 137.5 (-115) on a strong lean.
