Throw the Flag: Vegas, Baby, Vegas

Duke is a 6.5 point favorite in this week's game vs. Virginia, the first time they have been favored in six years.

From the Daily Press:
The Blue Devils have lost 25 consecutive ACC games, 61 of 64 this decade. From 1999-2003, they lost 30 straight conference outings. They haven't had a winning season since 1994 and haven't beaten Virginia since 1999.

According to my trusted gambling source, Professor Nappy, this marks the first time Duke has been favored against a conference opponent since the 2002 season finale against North Carolina, a game the Blue Devils lost.
Next thing you know, the Washington Generals will be giving points to the Harlem Globetrotters.
