  • The Duke Blue Devils are 15.5-point favorites against the Indiana Hoosiers in Tuesday's ACC-Big Ten Challenge matchup (9:30 p.m. ET, ESPN).
  • The Indiana-Duke over/under is currently set at 161.
  • Using The Action Network's betting tools, we analyze how both sharp and recreational bettors are playing this matchup.

The ACC-Big Ten Challenge continues Tuesday night with the Indiana Hoosiers traveling to Durham, North Carolina to take on the Duke Blue Devils (9:30 p.m. ET on ESPN).

Behind Zion Williamson and a loaded freshman class, the Blue Devils have been very popular among fans and recreational bettors. But following a loss to Gonzaga in Maui, the question now becomes how such a young team will rebound after its first loss.

The Blue Devils opened as 14.5-point favorites against the Hoosiers and bettors are happily laying the points. However, it’s not the point spread that’s attracting the attention of both sharp and public bettors.

In fact, The Action Network’s betting tools indicate that pros and Average Joes are in agreement on the Indiana-Duke over/under.

Oddsmakers opened this total at 157.5 and 78% of bets have played the over as of writing (see live data here). Not only are public bettors piling on the over, but sharps have pounded this side of the total as well.

Sports Insights’ Bet Signals — which track and report professional betting action in real-time — have triggered two Steam Moves on the over, helping to push the total up to the current number of 161.

Bettors of all different skill levels can often play nice, and that’s exactly what’s happening in Tuesday night’s Indiana-Duke game.
