Duke vs. Lehigh Free Pick

March 16, 2012

Lehigh +12

The Duke Blue Devils start what they hope will be the road to another NCAA national championship. Their March 16 matchup is at the Greensboro Coliseum against the Lehigh Mountain Hawks. The Blue Devils ended their regular season with a 27-6 overall record, while the Mountain Hawks had an impressive 26-7 regular season mark.

In this matchup, the Blue Devils are heavy favorites. The current line has them favored by 12 points. The total is sitting at 148.5. This season the Blue Devils were 13-20 ATS. Their defense held opponents to just 68 points per game, while their offense scored on average 77.5 per game. Lehigh only allowed 65 points per game and averaged just over 76 per game offensively.

The only player listed on the injury report is Duke’s Josh Hariston who is day to day as he recovers from a concussion. The two teams have not met prior to this game, nor do they have common opponents from the season.

Lehigh has been on a role, as they are 5-0 SU over their last five games. Those five wins were highlighted by their conference tournament win over Bucknell to win the tournament last Saturday. Duke is 3-2 SU in their last five games. They lost a blowout to North Carolina 88-70 at home to end the regular season and then lost to Florida State in the ACC tournament.

Duke is by far the more talented team. Nevertheless, the Lehigh Mountain Hawks are playing very good basketball and have nothing to lose. They can play pressure free basketball as nothing is expected of them aside from a very unexpected upset. The Blue Devils on the other hand have the pressure of being one of the top 10 teams in the nation and expectations of making it at least to the final four.

Duke will win this game SU with Lehigh keeping it close to the end. The total will be UNDER, as Lehigh will look to slow down the game. Bet Lehigh now at Intertops for your bonus.
