Thu, 30 Dec 2010 04:42 PM EST

MIAMI-FL HURRICANES (11-3)

at DUKE BLUE DEVILS (12-0)

Tip-off: Sunday, 7:45 p.m. EDT
Line: Duke -18.5, Total: 150

Top-ranked Duke begins ACC play looking for its 23rd straight victory when it hosts Miami on Sunday night.

The Blue Devils are coming off a 108-62 rout of UNC-Greensboro on Wednesday in the finale of its non-conference schedule. Kyle Singler (17.8 PPG, 5.6 RPG) scored 27 points against UNCG, his third consecutive game with at least 21, and Nolan Smith (17.8 PPG, 5.7 APG, 4.7 RPG) added 26 (his third straight with at least 22 points) and nine assists. Duke shot a season-high 60.9% and scored 42 points off 23 Spartans turnovers. Basketball odds.

The Blue Devils, second in the nation with an average of 90.6 PPG, have won 26 consecutive contests when scoring at least 80 points. But they’ve only reached 80 only once in their three-game winning streak over Miami. The Hurricanes are aiming for their fifth straight victory after beating Pepperdine, 94-59, on Thursday. Malcolm Grant (15.9 PPG, 45.5% three-pointers) led Miami with 22 points and Reggie Johnson (12.1 PPG, 9.9 RPG) chipped in with 12 points and 15 rebounds, as the Canes shot a season-high 53.8% FG against the Waves.

Miami will need to reverse its ACC road trend if it is to get a rare win at Duke. It has struggled away from home in the ACC, losing nine straight conference road contests. However, the Hurricanes did take the Blue Devils to overtime in their last visit to Cameron Indoor Stadium, falling 78-75 in OT, on Feb. 7, 2009. The last time Miami defeated Duke was at home, 96-95, on Feb. 20, 2008.

Singler had 27 points in the Blue Devils’ 77-74 win over Miami in last season’s ACC Tournament semifinals and has averaged 22.0 points and 9.7 rebounds in his last three games versus the ‘Canes. Durand Scott (13.5 PPG, 4.2 RPG, 46.2% three-pointers) led Miami with 21 points and Grant added 17 points. Basketball spreads.

Duke has won 13 of 14 against the Hurricanes and is 6-0 versus them at Cameron Indoor. But the teams have had some close calls recently, as the past four meetings have been decided by seven points or less.

Look for a closer-than-expected final score on Sunday night. These two FoxSheets trends predict that Miami will cover the spread.

Play On – Underdogs of 10 or more points (MIAMI) – off a home win against opponent off a road win scoring 85 or more points. (51-16 over the last 5 seasons.) (76.1%, +33.4 units. Rating = 4*).

Play Against – Home favorites of 10 or more points (DUKE) – after a cover as a double-digit favorite, playing only their 2nd game in 8 days. (93-49 over the last 5 seasons.) (65.5%, +39.1 units. Rating = 2*). Basketball lines.

The FoxSheets side with the Under on Sunday.

Play Under – Home teams against the total (DUKE) – after a game – shooting 57% or higher, allowing 43% or lower against opponent after 2 straight games – allowing a shooting pct. of 37% or less. (28-7 since 1997.) (80%, +20.3 units. Rating = 3*).
