Duke Blue Devils vs. Kansas Jayhawks Prediction 03/25/2018

If there were ever a better predicament to book an Under, this would have to be it. A 9.5-point steam move is one that is rarely seen by most in virtually any hoops game. In a game such as this one with two marquee teams in a highly-publicized outing, these lines are bound to be even sharper. Thus, the steam move would suggest that there is a substantial public overlay on the Over given the fact this contest is likely to get a lot of action due to its popularity. Both Kansas and Duke are two teams that know how to navigate this tournament well; chances are this one will be a game of possessions like the point spread entails. Grab the Under.
