The red-hot and second-seeded Duke Blue Devils will look to steamroll their way through the first round as they get set to meet the fifteenth-seeded Troy Trojans in an East Region showdown set be contested on Friday at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, South Carolina.

It will be the Trojans’ second Tournament appearance in school history who punched their ticket into the Big Dance by winning the Sun Belt Tournament Championship as the No. 6 seed last Sunday. Troy only played one ranked team this season admirably losing by five points at USC in December.

Along with Arizona, the Blue Devils enter the Tournament as one of the hottest teams in the competition. The five-time NCAA Champions entered the ACC Tournament as the No. 5 seed and proceeded to dispatch the cream of the crop of the nation with four consecutive wins in as many days to claim their first Conference Championship since 2011.

As usual, Duke is peaking at the right time and have all the tools and their notorious resilience to claim their second Championship in three years. They should face either South Carolina or Marquette in the next round. Look for Duke to hone its craft and cover the 20-point spread in a cakewalk.

BetOnline has the Duke listed as 20-point favorites and the game's total is sitting at 154.
