Prediction

Expect Miami Hurricanes to put up a strong fight against the favored Duke Blue Devils. Despite Duke's superior overall record and performance, Miami has the potential to keep this game close, especially at home.

While Duke may be the better team on paper, Miami has shown resilience and competitiveness throughout the season. With the +5.5 points spread, Miami has the opportunity to cover, considering their ability to keep games tight, even against stronger opponents.

Look for Miami to utilize their home-court advantage, coupled with solid performances from Omier and Pack, to challenge Duke and potentially pull off an upset or at least keep the game within the spread.

Considering Miami's recent performances and their ability to keep games close, the pick here is Miami +5.5, as they have the potential to make this game much tighter than the odds suggest.

 

Pick: Miami Hurricanes +5.5
