Zion Williamson is out and that means everything for the Duke Blue Devils. Duke is a team that prides itself on building a unit on star power; without their star, they are done. We are not saying stick a fork in Duke, they are Duke and they will show up for at least the first round of the NCAA Tournament, however, they will probably go no further. What the world will witness in Duke now, is exactly what they will witness in Duke come tournament time, without Zion.

Game: Duke Blue Devils (23-3, 15-11 ATS) at Syracuse Orange (18-8, 15-11 ATS)
When: 6:00 PM ET, Saturday, February 23rd, 2019
Where: Carrier Dome, Syracuse, New York
Current Line: Syracuse +4.5 Total: 143.5
TV Coverage: ESPN
The Devils are scoring just over 85 points per game and allowing 67. That’s a whopping 18-point differential and the real reason they are the number one team in the land. Syracuse is dealing with some disappointment along with some rock-solid defense as well, with just over 63 points per game allowed.
Both teams are at the top of their game defensively and this one will be defensive minded. Duke may or may not struggle without Zion, but one thing is for sure, there will not be a barn burning score fest in Syracuse. Look for the under.
NCAAM Free Pick: Under 143.5
