10* graded play on the Davidson as they take on Duke set to start at 7:00 PM ET on the College Hardwood. The simulator shows a high probability that Davidson will lose this game by 10 or fewer points. Duke may be No. 1 in the nation, but Davidson has returned all five starters and is a significant favorite to win the Southern Conference. Supporting this graded play is a proven system posting a 68-29 ATS mark for 70% winners since 2006. Play against favorites of 10 to 19.5 points after 8 or more consecutive wins and is undefeated on the season. This system simply is a reflection of what I call ‘public irrational exuberance’. The line for this game is inflated because Duke is No.1 and undefeated and facing a team that with a 7-5 record appears to have no chance to even stay within 20 points of Duke. When a storied program like Duke gets on a run, there is a steady stream of public backers making the bandwagon all the bigger. This forces the linesmaker to adjust the line to accommodate the anticipation of more bets being placed on Duke with each pass win. This is exactly what helps create the opportunity we have before us tonight in taking Davidson.
