Clemson made easy work of North Carolina State in the ACC Tournament opener on Tuesday and its reward is a quick date with Grayson Allen and Duke here Wednesday in a game much more important to the Bubble-riding Tigers. Let’s think about how much Clemson has in the tank and if there’s any value to be just laying the lumber with a healthier and rested Duke side in this Second Round tilt.

Clemson vs. Duke

Amile Jefferson and #6 seed Duke (+475 to win ACC Tournament, BetOnline) face a team possibly fighting for its March Madness life in live 12th-seed Clemson (80/1, BetOnline) after the Tigers won and covered as 6-point favorites against NC State in the First Round on Monday as Jaron Blossomgame had 22 points for Clemson in lame duck Head Coach Mark Gottfried’s last game for the Wolfpack. When these two last met in the Regular Season, Luke Kennard, Matt Jones and Duke (11-18-1) won but failed to cover as 11-point favorites at Cameron Indoor Stadium, 64-62 (151½). The Blue Devils are 0-4-1 ATS L5 overall while Clemson (14-6 ATS L20 Wednesdays) has now W3 ATS. The team Trends reveal the Under is 5-0 L5 Tigers games and 9-3 L12 meetings in this series including an Under (151½) in the last meeting at Cameron Indoor Stadium where Duke won but failed to cover as lofty 12-points chalks, 64-62. With Clemson 4-1 ATS L5 meetings and the Blue Devils 7-18-2 ATS L27 ACC dribbles and 3-11 ATS L14 Neutral Sites, maybe the Total is the best look? Or maybe Duke has too many guys who will step up and score in this spot?
