The Miami basketball team plays Duke in the ACC Tournament semifinals for the second straight season. After losing to number one seed Duke in the 2022 ACC Semifinals as the fourth seed, Miami is the top seed in the 2023 ACC Tournament. Duke and Miami split their two games this season.

Spread: Duke -3.5 (-102) Miami +3.5 (-120) Total: 144.5 Over (-115), Under (-105) Moneyline:  Duke -156 Miami +150

Miami did not cover the spread versus Wake Forest and the final score was way below the total. The Hurricanes are 18-13 versus the point spread this season and the Blue Devils are 13-19. Duke is 3-2 versus the spread in its last five games and Miami is 2-3. Over their last 10, Duke is 5-5 versus the spread and Miami is 6-4.

Miami has been far better versus the point spread versus ACC opponents with a 14-7 record this season than Duke who is 7-14. It’s tough to trust Miami versus the number. In a postseason game with the Duke defense extremely stingy over the last eight games betting the under is the best bet.
