Important News to Consider Before Placing Your Bet

(March 4, 2020) - A year ago, this was the Zion Williamson Show, the biggest star the sport had seen in decades playing alongside three other top-10 recruits. Every corner of Cameron Indoor Stadium was cramped -- filled with noise and drama and energy and spectacle. And each night there was a genuine Hollywood-style show, with rappers, NBA stars and even Barack Obama in the crowd to see monster dunks flickering across the video boards, destined for replay again and again on every highlight show.

Now Head Coach Mike Krzyzewski is asking the crowd for that same energy, that same enthusiasm, that same adoration for a team he believes might be even more impressive, in part because it lacks anything resembling last season's celebrity crowd.

"We don't just go to the supermarket and buy these things," Krzyzewski said after the Florida State victory."[The fans] have to be even more hungry, even more appreciative." - Source: ESPN.com

(March 4, 2020) -Just two weeks ago, the Blue Devils were the projected No. 5 overall seed. That almost certainly would have made them the No. 2 seed in the East Region, starting with two games in Greensboro, North Carolina, followed by two more in Madison Square Garden, potentially culminating in a major "home-court" advantage in the Elite Eight against projected No. 1 seed San Diego State.

But the Bracket Matrix has Duke projected for a No. 3 seed, which means starting in Greensboro is no longer guaranteed, and there's no telling into which region the Blue Devils would be placed.

If you think the seed doesn't matter, be sure to note that Duke has a 4-5 record in its last five NCAA tournament appearances as a No. 3 seed or worse, and it hasn't advanced beyond the Sweet 16 from that starting position since 1990.

If the Blue Devils can rally to win the ACC tournament, they may still get that No. 2 seed in the East and the coveted NC-to-NYC path to the Final Four that comes with it. However, that's a big "if" with the way they have been playing.  Source: Bleacher Report
