Elon Phoenix vs Duke Blue Devils 12/18/2021 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Elon Phoenix of the Colonial Athletic Association will meet with #2 Duke Blue Devils of the Atlantic Coast Conference in NCAAB action in Cameron Indoor Stadium, Durham, NC, on Saturday, December 18, 2021, at 4:00 PM (EST). The Duke Blue Devils needed to select an opponent for Saturday, and they chose the Elon Phoenix.

 

Elon comes into this match with a 3-8 record and becomes a victim for the Blue Devils, who are heavy favorites. Elon is coming off a 63-61 win over a weaker Winthrop and Phoenix dropped all four matches against Power 5 league opponents by an average of 16.9 points per game.

 

If the offense is to keep this game competitive, it must score more than the 71.3 points per game it has thus far. Duke does have one of the top offenses in the country, and they will score a lot of points in this one.

 

Elon ranks 77th in the three-point shooting but only 268th overall. The arc might be an attempt to keep this one inside the massive number. Elon shot 42 percent from the field overall, including 35 percent from long range, against Winthrop.

 

In this one, the defense will not have it simple. Michael Graham (6.8 ppg) led their offense with 13 points and 11 rebounds.

 

  • The University of Elon Phoenix is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 matches following an ATS win.
  • The total went Under in 4-1 of the Phoenix’s last 5 with a team on a straight-up winning record.
  • Phoenix is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 matches following a straight-up win.

Elon Phoenix vs Duke Blue Devils Predictions 12/18/2021

 

The Duke Blue Devils were supposed to face Cleveland State on this day, but the Vikings were taken over by Covid. The Vikings were meant to be replaced by Loyola Maryland, but they experienced the same fate as the Vikings.

 

Duke was finally able to find an opponent in Elon. Duke is 9-1 on the season, with their lone setback coming by five points on the road to Ohio State. The Blue Devils are the lone ACC club ranked in the most recent AP poll.

 

Duke ranks seventh in scoring (86.0 ppg) and 113th in points surrendered (65.2 ppg). They have a fantastic shooting team, which will cause the Phoenix a lot of issues in this game.

 

Duke is returning from a 92-67 win against Appalachian State, and their offense was led by Wendell Moore Jr. (17.4 ppg), who had 21 points, and Paolo Banchero (17.0 ppg), who had 16. The Blue Devils shot 57 percent from the field overall, while the Mountaineers shot only 40 percent.

 

  • The total went Over in 10-2-1 of the Blue Devils’ last 13 home matches against a team with a road winning % of less than .400.
  • Duke is 5-1 ATS in its last 6 home games against a team on a road winning % of less than .400.
  • The total went Over is 17-4-1 of the Blue Devils’ last 22 home matches against a team with a losing road record.

Elon Phoenix vs #2 Duke Blue Devils. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Elon Phoenix. Duke might be in a difficult situation here.  Duke may require additional preparation for this squad, but I still believe they will struggle to cover the huge amount.

 

Elon played four “Power Five” conference opponents, including North Carolina, and dropped all four games by a score of 19 or less. I believe their three-point shooting will keep them within the large numbers here, and Duke will call off the hounds when they are up big in the second half.

 

Finally, the Phoenix is 7-1 ATS in their past eight games after an ATS win. The Blue Devils are 4-9-1 ATS in their past 14 games following a more-than-20-point victory. The Elon Phoenix will win to a predicted score of 88-65.
