Every Friday during the college basketball season, Ted Sevransky (better known as Teddy Covers) will provide ESPN Insiders with his picks on Saturday's biggest games and a few under-the-radar matchups. He'll give a projected point spread and pick for each.
Projected point spread: Duke -7 to -9
Duke suffered another loss on Thursday night in a slower-paced game at Virginia, despite a combined 50 points from Seth Curry and Quinn Cook. The Blue Devils were outrebounded by a dozen and struggled defensively, particularly in the paint. Those same issues plagued Mike Krzyzewski's squad in the first meeting against Miami, which resulted in a 27-point Hurricanes win.
