Cameron Indoor Vegas Spread: -18 Duke

St. John's gets their first taste of the Craziness at Cameron against the 6/8 ranked Duke Blue Devils. Notes:

  • Quinn Cook missed the previous game with an illness; he's the Blue Devils' best/ most interested passer.
  • Duke can score on the inside with their size, and has hot 40% of their perimeter shots in ACC play.
  • Duke's defense has had some decent moments... but is often a sieve.
