Betting Analysis for Duke Blue Devils at Notre Dame Fighting Irish NCAAB
Duke Blue Devils Betting Stats & Analysis
The former No. 1 Blue Devils fell quite a bit after enduring a few difficult losses earlier in the season. But Duke seems to be on the right track as they have won three in a row and are beginning to climb up the rankings ladder.
On Saturday, it was A.J. Griffin who stepped up and led Duke to the win. Griffin scored 22 points in 34 minutes to go along with four rebounds and two steals. Additionally, Paolo Banchero and Mark Williams posted double-doubles in the win. Banchero put up an 11 and 15 line while Williams had 14 and 11.
Overall, Duke was able to grab 47 rebounds as a team compared to just 34 for Louisville. The Blue Devils also enjoyed a nice 20-10 advantage on the offensive glass, as Banchero grabbed six offensive rebounds and Williams added five more.
Duke also took care of the basketball. They totaled just seven turnovers as a team, and no player had more than two turnovers in the game.
Griffin was a model of consistency in this game as well. The forward went 8-13 from the field, 5-5 from beyond the arc, and had zero turnovers. That is the kind of effort that is going to earn you a lot of respect from your teammates.
Duke will look to continue playing well on the road at Notre Dame in this Monday night matchup. Although they enter as road favorites, nothing about playing the Fighting Irish on their home floor will come easy.
But limiting turnovers and winning the rebound battle will provide Duke with another solid opportunity for a victory.
Notre Dame Fighting Betting Stats & Analysis
Notre Dame is red hot all of a sudden, following a fairly mediocre beginning to the 2021-2022 campaign. They narrowly escaped with a home victory over Virginia on Saturday to keep their current winning streak intact.
From a scoring perspective, the Fighting Irish utilized a complete team effort. Dane Goodwin and Nate Laszewski scored 16, while Paul Atkinson and Blake Wesley both added 14 points. Despite being out-rebounded by a rather large margin, the Fighting Irish made up for it by shooting 46.8 percent from the field and 43.5 percent from deep while turning the ball over just eight times.
The main difference in this game was the three-point battle. As aforementioned, Notre Dame went 10-23 (43.5 percent) from beyond the arc. On the other side, Virginia shot just 3-14 (21.4 percent) from three-point land.
Notre Dame truly needed every bit of that three-point advantage in the competitive four-point victory.
But defeating Duke will prove to be difficult if they can’t keep the rebound battle close. They cannot let the Blue Devils obliterate them on the boards, especially on the offensive glass.
Notre Dame holds an advantage in three-point percentage over Duke, so if they can out-shoot them from deep while maintaining a presence on the boards, the Fighting Irish realistically could pull off the upset.
