CFB | Duke 31 @ Northwestern 23 | 09/10 | 4:00 PM UTC

UNDER 57

WIN

ANALYSIS: While Northwestern is one of my favorite underdog leans in any given season, its win over Nebraska in Dublin, Ireland, was as much about what the Cornhuskers did wrong as what they did right. Similarly, Duke's obliteration of Temple was not so much about the Blue Devils suddenly becoming dominant but rather the Owls starting a long rebuild. This is a matchup of two defense-first coaches who are going to slug it out across 60 minutes. We missed the best line by waiting until closer to kickoff (candidly, I thought it might hit 60 given heavy public action is on the over), but I'm still comfortable enough here. There's a non-zero chance this is played in the teens.
