(4) Tennessee vs. (5) Duke

Leg 1 – Duke -3.5 (-105) 

The Duke Blue Devils haven’t played well all year long. But they’ve figured it out over the last two months.

Everyone’s talking about Tennessee’s defense. As they should. The Vols have held teams to 26.4% from three and 44.5% from inside the arc throughout the season.

But Duke’s defense has been just as good recently. The Blue Devils held Oral Roberts to 51 points and kept Virginia to 49 points over the last two games. They even held UNC to 57 points in a game where the Tar Heels needed to win in the regular season.

Duke’s healthy and playing at a very high level. Tennessee isn’t healthy and has lost four of its last five games, with those losses coming against Auburn and Missouri (in the SEC Tournament).

Duke will out-shoot Tennessee in a low-scoring game.

Leg 2 – Under 127.5 (-110) 

Tennessee is highly regarded on KenPom as one of the best defenses in the nation. The Vols have a defensive effective field goa percentage of 42.5% and have allowed just 26.4% from downtown this season. That’s the top percentage in all of college basketball.

Duke should escape Tennessee, but it’s going to be a game similar to how the ACC Championship game went down. Duke will out-defend Tennessee, score enough points and move on to the Sweet 16 with terrific defensive play.

Leg 3 – Kyle Filipowski Over 14.5 Points (-113)

Filipowski is Duke’s leading scorer. I’m not saying Duke is going to go on a rampage tonight. The offense won’t. But someone’s got to score.

Filipowski averages 15.1 points per game but only had six in the game against Oral Roberts. He wasn’t really needed in that game and Connor Vanover, was the center, who was a former center for Arkansas, was keeping him away from the rim for Oral Roberts.

Anyway, Filipowski added 20 against Virginia, 17 against Miami, 22 against Pittsburgh, and 22 against North Carolina in his previous four games. He’s an elite scorer and elite player. He’ll get at least 15 tonight.
