Butler – Duke Line

After opening at -6 ½, the Butler - Duke line has now shot up to -7 ½ in favor of the Fighting Irish.  BetUS.com was still holding the line at -7.  Just over 70 percent of the backing in this game is going Duke's way.

Tim Furious of BetUS.com offered this observation of the Butler - Duke game:

"Using incredible defense and a towering front court that doesn't allow too many second chances, Duke continues to be the best-of-the-best in the tournament. While the rest of the betting public tries to find a champion in the mix, Duke has done an uncanny job of proving time and again that they are a championship caliber team.

"When the national title game rolls on Monday night, Duke will be making its first NCAA tournament title appearance since 2001 which also marks the last time the storied program claimed the championship. Standing in their way will be a program that nobody has cared to acknowledge as a true basketball juggernaut.

"Whether Butler wins or loses when they face Duke as heavy underdogs, they've proven their point. As they say, to be the best, you must beat the best. Butler now has that chance when they face what has been the best team in March Madness betting thus far. If there is one thing we know for sure on Monday night, Butler has given us zero reason to lose faith in them."
