Delaware Blue Hens vs Duke Blue Devils 11/18/2022 Picks Predictions Previews


The Delaware Blue Hens will meet with the #7 Duke Blue Devils in NCAAB action in Cameron Indoor Stadium, NC, on Friday, November 18, 2022, at 7:00 PM ET.


Last Monday night, non-Division I Wilmington DE was defeated by Delaware in a rout. In their first travel game of the year, the Blue Hens were unable to capitalize on that effort and fell to Air Force by four points despite being 1.5-point favorites.


Last Friday against the Falcons, they overcame a 15-point deficit in the second half but were never able to regain the lead. In contrast, three players had at least ten points in the away game.


Christian Ray got 10 boards against the Falcons, making him the fourth Delaware player in the last 18 seasons to start a season with back-to-back double-digit rebounding efforts.


On Friday night, the Blue Hens will be attempting to make up for a height deficit as Duke boasts five players who are taller than 6-foot-9 compared to only one for the Blue Hens.


The Blue Devils are No. 15, ranking No. 272 out of 363 Division I teams in terms of average height. Given that Delaware entered this game as No. 11 nationally in turnover rate, a positive from the defeat to Air Force was the lack of turnovers.


  • The total went UNDER in 8 of Delaware’s last 12 matches. 
  • The Delaware Blue Hens are 4-2 SU in their last 6 matches. 
  • The total went OVER in 6 of Delaware’s last 7 matches on the road.

Delaware Blue Hens vs Duke Blue Devils Predictions 11/18/2022


Under head coach Jon Scheyer, Duke began the season with dominating victories against Jacksonville and South Carolina Upstate.


When they played No. 6 Kansas on Tuesday night, the Blue Devils were not quite able to maintain their momentum, losing to the Jayhawks by five points.


Kansas forced 18 turnovers against Duke while shooting 46.3% from the field. The first Blue Devil to begin his career with three straight double-doubles, freshman Kyle Filipowski led the Blue Devils with 17 points and 14 rebounds.


The three players averaging double figures in production are Mark Mitchell, Filipowski, and veteran guard Jeremy Roach, who is the lone returning starter from the squad from the previous season.


Dariq Whitehead, a highly anticipated freshman, is yet to suit up as he continues to heal from preseason foot surgery.


Whitehead “probably” won’t play on Friday, according to Scheyer’s statement on Tuesday. Duke enters this contest as the top offensive-rebounding team in the nation, which allowed them to overcome some subpar shooting statistics so far.


  • The Duke Blue Devils are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 matches. 
  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Duke’s last 5 matches. 
  • The Duke Blue Devils are 15-4 SU in their last 19 matches.

Delaware Fightin Blue Hens vs #7 Duke Blue Devils. The NCAAB pick for this game is the #7 Duke Blue Devils. This is perhaps the worst conceivable matchup for Delaware to have.


The Blue Hens, one of the smallest teams in NCAA basketball, let up over 60% of Air Force’s 2-point attempts last week. They now have to compete against a Duke squad that tops the nation in offensive rebounding percentage and is No. 15 in average height.


Every position will have mismatches for the Blue Devils, and their length will result in layups the whole game.


As they did in their first two matches against lesser opponents, they successfully covered the spread in five of their previous seven matches and shouldn’t have any trouble doing so on Friday night.


The #7 Duke Blue Devils will win to a predicted score of 84-60.
