Duke vs. North Carolina Prediction and Odds (Predicting Coach K’s Last Home Game as Head Coach)

Cameron Indoor Stadium will never be the same tonight as the No. 4 Duke Blue Devils play their final home game with coach Mike Krzyzewski at the helm. For the past 42 seasons, the living legend has led this team and tonight would be a great way to wrap up his last regular season with this program. It seems fitting that their opponents tonight are their longtime rivals, the North Carolina Tar Heels. Unfortunately, UNC has fallen on hard times and is no longer the powerhouse it once was. Hence the 11.5 spread for this fight. Still, this is a big game that Duke can’t just overlook as they prepare for March Madness. Here are the odds for this historic matchup, courtesy of WynnBET Sportsbook.

Spread:

money line:

In total: 152.5 (above -110/below -110)

While it’s a shame that UNC isn’t at the level it used to be, that doesn’t mean this game will disappoint. Not only are the Blue Devils overwhelming favorites, but they also see a lot of public money due to the narrative surrounding this game. I’m actually surprised that the spread hasn’t increased to 12.5 as we get closer to the tip. But I don’t think UNC will just turn around and show Duke his gut. They’ve played a lot better over the past few weeks and would love to spoil Duke’s biggest night in a long time. To do this, they must bolster their defenses and score efficiently against the nation’s 46th defense. The points side of things is very doable considering UNC has the 19th-best scoring offense in the country. However, with the 249th goal defense, stopping Duke is a whole different matter. Duke is averaging over 80 points per game and is fourth at +15.3 on average. Nonetheless, this spread worries me. However, I am confident that both teams will try to turn off the lights tonight. With the talent of both teams up front, we could embark on a dangerous affair. At 152.5 I think the total is very beatable and I expect these two teams to play in the 158-160 range.

Tip: OVER 152.5 (-110)
