Cats are 18.5 dogs at Duke

ESPN has the Cats as 18.5 underdogs at #21 Duke, over/under is 46.5 But at least Spectrum and Disney have come to an agreement on a new carriage contract and the ACCN is back on cable.

But I’m looking into my streaming options anyway.

I’m not sure Vegas knows how to handle Duke yet. This is much more reasonable (projected score around 32-14), but the numbers for their game last week against Lafayette were kinda dumb. Duke was favored by 42.5 with an O/U of 47.5. The instant Lafayette scored a TD (which happened in the first quarter and turned out to be their only score), either Duke wasn’t covering or it was going to the over (or both, as it turned out).


You find similar circumstances with other expected blow outs. Alabama could be favored by 50 against Pushover D2 with an under/ over of 55. Clearly Vegas and the bettors are expecting very little offense from them as well as an annhilation of their D If you think that somehow they will manage to get a TD either due to a lucky bounce ( fumble / pick)or against a 3rd string mop up Defence late in the game, then take the over and Pushover U with the points
