Duke Blue Devils

The Duke Blue Devils are one of the top contenders to win the National Championship in 2016-2017. The Blue Devils return Grayson Allen and they have another great recruiting class. Duke does have to replace Brandon Ingram and Marshall Plumlee but there are plenty of newcomers who can pick up the slack.

Allen leads the way for Duke as he averaged 21.5 points per game last season as a freshman. He should be joined in the backcourt this season by either Luke Kennard or Frank Jackson who is a top 15 recruit. The Blue Devils also have Matt Jones who averaged 10.4 points per game last season.

The frontcourt will look different this season as Harry Giles and Jayson Tatum arrive as two of the top recruits. Both of those players will help out Amile Jefferson in the middle this season.

2016-2017 Duke Blue Devils Betting

Duke is almost always overvalued in terms of the pointspread as they are a huge public team. Last year was no exception as the Blue Devils were just 14-19-2 ATS. The Blue Devils will be overvalued again this season but they do have a lot of talent and they are capable of covering the spread at any time.

Duke has a deep roster with many players who could be starting elsewhere including Marques Bolden, Chase Jeter and Javin DeLaurier who is a top 40 recruit.

Duke Blue Devils Picks

Head coach Mike Krzyzewski has a ton of talent to work with this season and anything less than an ACC title and a long NCAA Tournament run would be considered a disappointment. You can make a case that this year’s team will be one of the most athletic that Coach K has ever had at Duke. The key for Duke will be improving on defense and rebounding as they were not good enough on the boards last season.

Duke is good enough that they might win 30 games this season and they should go into the NCAA Tournament as one of the favorites to win the title.
