Joe D's 100% ESPN DUKE/FSU WINNER
Duke vs. Florida State,
02/23/2012 19:00 EDT,
Score: 74 - 66
Point Spread: +2½/-110 Florida State
Today's winner is Florida State over Duke. This is my ESPN Winner.
Florida State has won and covered the L2 meetings over Duke, including a 76-73 victory back in January. I know the Blue Devil's will look to avenge the loss, but the Seminoles "D" is the best stop unit in the SEC against FG's (37%) and beyond the arc (29%). Since returning Ian Miller from suspension, the team has flourished as the Guard is averaging 12.7 PPG over the L4 games. Throw in the mix, Michael Snaer and Bernard James (23.8 PPG and 12.0 RPG combined) and the 'Noles offense will exploit the ACC's worst "D" (44%) of the Devil's. The Seminole's are 22-4-1 ATS their L27 games played as a home 'dog of .5-6 1/2 points while the Blue Devils are 4-11 ATS the L15 games played against the Seminoles. Take Florida State. Thank you.
