It’s not all that often that you see us eager to lay double digits at home with any team in the land in conference play, but that’s what we’re set to do on Thursday. The Dookies are coming off of a bad 84-76 loss to the NC State Wolfpack and now, they get to come back home to take on the Ramblin’ Wreck. G Seth Curry is expected to play after tweaking his knee against the Wolfpack on Saturday, and that’s good news considering the fact that F Ryan Kelly is out for the foreseeable future with a foot problem. The Yellow Jackets just don’t score enough for this game, though. They’re averaging just 65.5 points per game on the campaign, and no one is averaging even 11 points per game. In ACC play thus far, the Jackets have been held to 61.3 points per game, and unlike in the non-conference season when there were a lot of bad offensive teams to build up gaudy defensive stats against, the ACC clubs are actually figuring out how to score some points. Duke should get to at least 75 in this one, and that should be enough to cover.
Georgia Tech vs. Duke Pick: Duke Blue Devils -16.5
Georgia Tech vs. Duke Prediction: Duke 77 – Georgia Tech 60
