College basketball betting odds have not treated Duke well while the Terps have gone on a bit of a college basketball betting up-tick. As is usually the case the Duke Blue Devils are one of the most popular teams that you can wager college basketball betting odds with, which has the adverse effect of depleting them of any college basketball betting board value.
Duke had an overall record of 21-5 straight up but was just 11-13-1 against the college basketball betting odds. The Blue Devils have really had their share of problems on the road as they were just 2-6 against the college basketball betting odds away from the Cameron Crazies.
Duke has also been a solid under team this year against the over/under college basketball betting odds with a mark of 9-15 under the total including a road mark of 3-5 under the number.
Duke’s offense has been their main strength against the college basketball betting odds as it ranked 27th nationally while the defense ranked a respectable 74th in the nation. From January 7 through February 19 the Blue Devils beat the college basketball betting odds in just 3 out of 13 games.
Since most of those games were in the Atlantic Coast Conference it also demonstrates Duke’s lack of college basketball betting dominance against upper echelon teams. Duke was in a log jam for 2nd place in the ACC, well behind front running North Carolina.
The Maryland Terrapins have also had their share of problems against the college basketball betting odds. Maryland had an overall record of 16-9 straight up and 9-7-2 against the college basketball betting odds.After the athletic director had to deny that coach Gary Williams was in jeopardy of being fired the Terps picked up the pace against the college basketball betting odds as they got the cash in 3 out of 4 games from January 31 through February 17.
