    I have only seen a handful of Insider pots from my fellow Dukie.

    well, they got rid of the other one, so there is a mod somewhere.

    Agreed, it would reduce your number of post by about 95%.

    ^Doesn't matter to me whether it's allowed or not. Personally, I would love to see any sign of moderation on here at all because then maybe there's hope they'd do something to cut down on all the trolling.

    Ok Mods...you heard obviously saw my call-out for the other thread, now what are you going to do about the rest of them?

    Sorry 903, but some paying Insider customers (personally, I don't care) don't like it when you post premium content. It would be like me posting something from Devils Den or Pack Pride premium stuff on here. It is probably not legal either.

    I just want to see if WRAL is on their toes! :)

    Thanks, Hokie! I figured they would play better today. Certain coaches know how to make that happen after a lousy performance.

    A huge Bingo. Duke played with solid intensity today. Shot the lights out except for FT's. Rebounding didn't match MD, but they made up for it by having only 4 turn-overs. Congrats' Battling.

    http://insider.espn.go.com/mens-college-basketball/story/_/id/8880306/duke-blue-devils-kansas-jayhawks-upset-alert-plus-more-picks-college-basketballMaryland Terrapins at Duke Blue Devils
    Projected point spread: Duke -12 to -14
    The knee- reaction among some bettors is to look to support Duke off a loss. However, a hard look at the data shows that the Blue Devils have been long-term money losers against the spread following an ACC defeat over the past 15 years. Four late free throws got Duke backers the money following their last loss in a 16-point win over Georgia Tech as 15-point favorite.

    But the Blue Devils' 27-point blowout loss earlier this week was different from their competitive defeat at the hands of N.C. State -- it was a confidence shaker. Seth Curry, Quinn Cook and Tyler Thornton combined to shoot 1-of-29 from the floor against Miami's stout defense, and Maryland ranks No. 2 in the country in defensive field goal percentage.

    The Terps' Alex Len can bang with Mason Plumlee in the paint, and the Terps' slow pace could give the Blue Devils fits. I certainly don't see Duke losing this game, but Mark Turgeon's squad hasn't lost by more than 10 points against anybody all season. That makes them a clear choice as double-digit dogs.

    The ATS pick: Take Maryland
