La Salle vs Duke Prediction
The current betting odds have Duke listed as a 24 point favorite in this game according to Draftkings Sportsbook. Duke has looked good this season with their 3-1 record overall and they are also 2-1 in their home games too. Their only loss this season, which also came at home, was against Arizona who is now ranked inside the top 5 in the country but they did bounce back with a quality win against Michigan State and now Duke will be looking to stay on their win streak after that early season scare. La Salle has also looked really good this season with their 4-0 record overall but despite being undefeated, they have also had a much weaker schedule and don't have nearly enough talent to pull off an upset on the road against a team like Duke. La Salle has also played all 4 of their games this season at home so this is their 1st road game in a hostile environment while Duke continues to play in the comfort of their own building and roll over the lesser talented teams they face. The best way to place a bet here is on Duke to cover the spread in this game.
La Salle Duke Prediction: Our NCAAB Pick for Tuesday, November 21, 2023 (7:00 pm ET start time) is Duke 97 La Salle 66.

"Obviously a real good win for us. I don't think it was an artistic success but a real good win. Our defense has to improve, we have to get better, that being said I thought Southern Indiana played well and they did what they needed to do, they made shots at difficult times, but our defense has to improve." - Fran Dunphy after his team’s win against Southern Indiana in their last game on Saturday.
“I wanted to have something that’s memorable. I can always go to bat for my guys.” - Jon Scheyer after his team’s win against Bucknell in their last game on Friday.
