Tony Caliente, resident bookmaker expert here, taking a look at the Syracuse-Duke game line and determining what that number should really be.

Now a look at the Syracuse-Duke game where we have a line of Blue Devils -14 despite the Orange owning a respectable 18-10 record Straight Up.

Second-place Duke (23-5, 11-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) is out of contention for the top seed in the ACC Tournament.  But Duke has plenty for which to play with three regular-season games left. A loss Saturday would drop it into a tie with North Carolina.

For Syracuse, this is a bubble team that played a solid game Wednesday night but ultimately lost 78-74 to No. 10 North Carolina.

"I think we've got a good team. I think we've played well," Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim said. "We've got some really, really tough games left and we'll see what happens."

Syracuse has won the last two games in this series while splitting the last six meetings.

In the NCAA College Basketball Betting Power Ratings, Syracuse ranks just inside the Top 50 with Duke in the number 2 spot.  This results in a line that ends up being right on the money at -14.  The Orange as part of a teaser is probably your best bet here.
