Duke has lost just once (Feb. 7 vs. Virginia) since falling at Florida State in overtime Jan. 18. The Blue Devils are 11-1 overall and 7-0 on the road over that stretch.

DU is coming off a 97-point performance at Syracuse Saturday where three starters scored 20 or more points for the highest-scoring team in the ACC (80.1 points per game).

The Panthers rank last in the circuit in scoring (62.5 PPG) and have not played since losing 85-64 to Miami (Fla.) last Tuesday. They are 3-6 since Jan. 30.

Pittsburgh snapped a five-game losing skid against Duke the last time these programs met. On Jan. 19, 2021, in Pittsburgh, Pa., Pitt downed Duke 79-73. The Panthers outscored the Devils 24-11 at the free-throw that day.

Duke at Pittsburgh odds, lines, picks and predictions

Prediction

Duke 75, Pittsburgh 64

Money line

PASS.

Against the spread

The Panthers are 4-0 ATS in their last four games following a straight-up loss of more than 20 points, and they’re in a likable spot here.

With Duke playing its third straight game away from Cameron Indoor Stadium, peg this contest against mercurial Pitt as having enough of a chance for landing somewhere in the Devils by 10-or-12 range.

TAKE PITTSBURGH +14.5 (-108).

Over/Under

Three out of the last four Pitt home games have hit the Over. Duke has been a solid Over play the last few weeks, and Over tickets have cashed in six of its last eight.

BACK THE OVER 137.5 (-115) on a strong lean.
