Joe D'Amico's NCAAF Belk Bowl Late Info Play
Cincinnati vs. Duke,

Score: 48 - 34
Point Spread: +9½/-105 Duke
Thursday's winner is Duke over Cincinnati. This is my Late Info Play.
Well, sports fans, I'm going to keep this short and sweet. Due to the line movement here, we must take advantage of it.
After some notable wins over Wake Forest, Virginia, and North Carolina, Duke has now lost and failed to cover 4 straight. The Blue Devil's offense has a capable QB and three outstanding receivers in Crowder, Vernon, and Scott (2586 YR and 17 TDs combined). On "D", the previously tired stop unit has had over a month to rest. Playing in nearby Charlotte gives the team the home-field advantage for their 16 local boys. They will also be hyped here, making their first Bowl appearance in 18 years. Cincy has an interim coach running the show in this game. The team has seen changes in multiple key positions during this season and lost deep-threat, Julian. Despite a defense that allows 17.2 PPG, remember that they are in the Big East, which that stat truly doesn't account for much. This line keeps going up, making it way too many points. Take Duke. Thank you.
