ACC Tourney Betting Odds & Basketball Predictions: Syracuse Orange vs Duke Blue Devils

#6 Syracuse Orange (20-12) vs
#3 Duke Blue Devils (26-5)

Time: 9:00 PM ET
Date: Thursday, March 14, 2019
Where: Spectrum Center, Charlotte, North Carolina
Watch on: ESPN
Spread: Duke -11½
Moneyline: Duke -739
Total O/U: 144

The fifth-ranked and No. 3 seed Duke Blue Devils will attempt to get back into the winner’s circle and their chances to do so have increased dramatically with freshman phenom Zion Williamson returning to the lineup after a month of inaction. Without Williamson, the Blue Devils have gone 3-3 but one of their victories were against the team they will square off against in the likes of the No. 6 seed Syracuse Orange. The two Atlantic Coast Conference rivals are scheduled to lock horns in the 4th installment of the quarterfinals of the ACC tournament set to be contested Thursday night and live from the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, NC.

The straw that stirs the drink, Williamson takes the Blue Devils from good to great and he significantly increases their chances of covering a double-digit spread vs. Syracuse. Both ACC rivals have split the season’s series with the visiting team winning straight up and against the spread each time. The Orange stunned the Blue Devils in the first meeting in overtime despite Williamson’s highest input of the season with 35 points but Duke avenged that defeat in Syracuse without their star freshman in a convincing 10-point win back on February 23. With Zion in the mix, the Blue Devils should be uplifted emotionally as they should cruise to an easy victory.
