2013 March Madness Odds – Blue Devils Will Be Tough To Beat With Kelly In The Lineup


From Gonzaga’s undefeated season in the West Coast Conference and first-ever No. 1 ranking, to the dominance of a Big Ten conference that has four teams ranked in the AP Top-10, there is no shortage of March Madness Odds storylines to keep an eye on heading in to this year’s national title tournament. Not lost in the hype for the March Madness is the play of the second-ranked Duke Blue Devils, which have their own undefeated run that has slid under the radar. The Blue Devils are a perfect 17-0 with Ryan Kelly in the lineup this season, and that makes them a very dangerous team heading in to this year’s tournament.

2013 March Madness OddsWith four losses overall, Duke fell to No. 2 in the national rankings behind a Gonzaga team that had no trouble running away with the WCC title. However, lost in the rankings is the fact that the Bulldogs had a much easier conference schedule, and didn’t have to deal with the injury issues that hurt the Blue Devils. Gonzaga lost just two games and it’s hard to argue against the fact that they still have the best 5Dimes record in the nation, but that’s still not enough to overlook what Duke has done. The Blue Devils were once again undefeated at home and undefeated with Kelly in the lineup, and the latter will stay with them heading in to the March Madness.

Kelly played an important role with Duke this online sports betting season, as one of the pure scorers that could spread the defense with his three-point shooting while still maintaining a strong presence on the boards. Kelly averaged 14.6 points per game for the Blue Devils and ranked second in rebounding with an average of 5.6 boards behind only Mason Plumlee. Plumlee though is more of an inside presence, and that makes Kelly that much more important to help open up space underneath. Seth Curry and Quinn Cook are lethal shooters on the outside that have the ability to penetrate, and Kelly’s ability to move both inside and outside adds to their ability to catch defenses off guard.

The Blue Devils ranked eighth in the nation in scoring even with Kelly missing time, and will be that much more lethal in the online betting tournament with him. Plumlee, Kelly, Curry, and Cook all have the potential to take over games at different times, and that versatility will really help Duke when it matters the most. Head coach Mike Krzyzewski is one of the most experienced and intelligent coaches in the game today, and he will put his guys in the best possible position to exploit matchups and win games. Despite being the second-ranked team in the nation, the Blue Devils may still be among the most underrated heading in to this tournament, and this could be the year they finally get the job done.
