Unfortunately for the oddsmakers, they really are basing their assessment of the Wildcats off of unfair pretenses. Davidson really has underachieved this year for the most part, and it has a lot of bad losses as proof of that. Meanwhile, the Blue Devils just keep rolling no matter where they are ultimately playing. This is a neutral site game that might even feel like a little bit of a road game in Charlotte, and the Dookies have actually played a heck of a lot better ball on a neutral court than at home this year. They’re a whopping 5-0 ATS in games played outside of Durham, and this really might not be an exception when push comes to shove. We just don’t see how the Cats are going to have the firepower to match up with F Mason Plumlee and the rest of the bigs for the Blue Devils, and with the eyes of the whole world watching in this one, we don’t expect to see a repeat performance like the struggle that Duke had against the Santa Clara Broncos last week. This one should be significantly easier when push comes to shove.
