Line: North Carolina Tar Heels +500 Duke Blue Devils -700
Spread: Duke Blue Devils -11 Total: 153
North Carolina will enter this game looking to avenge a devastating overtime loss to Duke back in early February by a score of 98-96. The Tar Heels have dropped their last two to the Blue Devils with both teams having split their last ten with five apiece. Duke is one game back of the ACC lead and could still secure the second seed in the ACC tournament. North Carolina could possibly be without Armando Bacot and Andrew Platek, who are both listed as questionable with ankle injuries. Duke is 14-2 at home this year and is 8-1 at Cameron against ACC opposition.
North Carolina hopes to end road struggles
North Carolina is 2-8 SU in their last 10 games on the road and is just 2-7 away from home in ACC play this year. The Tar Heels have won three straight games and will need to win the ACC tournament if they are to extend their 27 straight NCAA tournament appearances. North Carolina is second in the country in rebounding with 41..9 a game and is tied for sixth in offensive rebounds with 13.6. The Tar Heels have relied on freshman sensation Cole Anthony who has missed ten games this year. He is still averaging 20.2 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 4.1 assists a game. North Carolina has struggled against ranked teams this year with a 1-6 record.
