With the 2017 College Basketball season fast approaching Coach K has put together a monster squad of talent and depth. Duke has always been a talented team they have never lacked for that but in recent years depth and developing depth have been an Achilles heel for the Blue Devils. This year will be the exception with the Durham Brain Trust striking recruiting gold with 6 signees in the 2016 class.
Duke opened with odds of 9-2 and now are currently are at 7-2 with their odds of winning the championship. It’s hard to ever say that a season would be a failure without at least a final four birth but this year one could legitimately make that argument. Duke will be one of the most heavily bet on and bet against this season both overseas and in the U.S. With the recent popularity of online gaming and online casinos it’s no wonder revenues from online betting will be in the hundreds of billions of dollars next year. The online gaming and casino site netbet will be a hotspot for sports betting and will surely be frequented by fans wanting to cash in on the Duke odds this year. It will be interesting to follow the amount that Duke Basketball games will be responsible for.
