The Baylor Bears and the Duke Blue Devils meet up for the opportunity to be the last team to punch their ticket to the Final Four. The Duke Blue Devils are 5 point favorites, with a total of 140 points. CBS will begin broadcasting of this Tournament contest at 5:05 EDT.

How ironic is it that Duke is the last remaining #1 seed alive in the NCAA Tournament? This Duke program is either loved or hated, but the simple fact is many people think this program is simply overrated. Duke is a proud program that has been to 11 Final Fours under the coaching regime of Mike Krzyzewski. Despite all that success, it's surprising to know that Duke hasn't made it to the Final Four since 2004. The Blue Devils enter tonight's contest with overall records of 32-5 SU and 21-13-2 ATS this season. The Blue Devils are 15-5 SU and 10-9-1 ATS on the road this season, including a sparking 10-0 SU and 7-3 ATS in neutral court games. Duke is 21-14 ATS as the listed favorite this season, including 8-6-1 ATS as a single digit favorite. Duke has been winning with defense all season long, as that's what has made them a dominant favorite this year. Duke is 10-1 ATS against dynamic offenses that average at least 77 PPG this season. The Blue Devils average 77 PPG this season, yet have been held under that total in each of their past 6 games.

Duke is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 neutral site games as the listed favorite. The under is 4-0 in the Blue Devils last 4 NCAA Tournament games.

Duke has a roster that is as healthy as any in the nation, as they don't even list an injury today.

Baylor is turning into America's team, as they have had quite the program overhaul in the past 7 years. Coach Scott Drew has done an outstanding job turning this program around, as they can get to the Final Four for the 3rd time in school history, and the 1st time since 1950. Baylor comes into today's contest off a demolishing blowout of 23 PTS against St. Mary's. Baylor is starting to get the respect that a 28-7 SU team should get. The Bears are 18-10 ATS in addition to their 28-7 SU record this entire season. Baylor is 13-6 SU and 12-7 ATS away from home this season, including 7-2 SU and 5-3 ATS in neutral court scenarios this season. The Bears are 5-3 ATS as the listed underdog this season. Baylor excels in non-conference games this season, going 8-2 ATS. The Bears also have tasted success against good defensive teams, going 5-1 ATS against teams that allow 64 PPG or less this season. Baylor has scored at least 70 PTS in 10 of their past 11 contests.

The Bears have 3 players that average at least 13 PPG this season, led by G LaceDarius Dunn. Dunn averaged a team high 19.5 PPG, including 3.3 three pointers per game this year.

Baylor is 10-3 ATS in their last 13 neutral site games as the listed underdog. The over is 6-0 in the last 6 games the Bears were the underdog.

Like Duke, Baylor has a completely healthy roster as they approach the school's biggest game in nearly 60 years.

Pregame.com projects the final score to be 76-72 in favor of the Duke Blue Devils. The over 140 is the Total of the Day!
