Duke vs Virginia Tech by Jamesington
Division leaders Duke entertain last placed Virginia Tech today looking to repeat their victory in the corresponding fixture last season.
Duke (8 Wins, 1 Loss this season) are unbeaten at home in North Carolina and are hotly tipped in the American press to win this match. I agree with the stateside analysis and urge you to heavily back the home team win here for a simple yet solid profit. The reason they are so hotly tipped is not only their impressive win record but the fact that they possess the conference's strongest defence and are coming up against a team with the 3rd poorest offence.
Virginia Tech have lost their last 3 matches by an average of 10.3 points per game, and have gone from a team with a winning record halfway through the regular season to one that is in danger of finishing bottom of the division. In contrast Duke has won their last 3 matches by an average of 9 points per game and can do so again today by getting at QB Michael Brewer - whom Virginia Tech have struggled to protect this year, and has been sacked 17 times (13 more than his Duke counterpart Anthony Boone).
To summarise, a hot team on a 4 game winning streak comes up against a side that appears to be their own worst enemy and has not won in their last 3.
