DraftKings NC Promo Code: Bet On March Madness & Get Up To $1,300 In Bonuses

On Saturday, a North Carolina basketball showdown will occur as the Duke Blue Devils take on the UNC Tar Heels. These teams have identical records of 24-6, but the Tar Heels are 16-3 in the conference compared to Duke’s 15-4 mark. 

The Tar Heels’ March Madness odds are , and Duke is at to win the tournament. 

Below, we’ll go over some analysis and odds for this ACC showdown from top March Madness betting sites.

UNC-Duke winner looks to shake up NCAA Tournament odds

As mentioned, the Blue Devils and Tar Heels have the same record, but the Tar Heels have one more win in the conference. This game is taking place on Duke’s home court, where the Blue Devils are 15-2 this season. The Tar Heels are 7-2 on the road. This is their second matchup this season. They last played in Chapel Hill on Feb. 3, where UNC won 93-84. 

Senior night for two key Duke players

While this isn’t something you can put on a stat sheet, Duke will celebrate Spencer Hubbard, senior captain Jeremy Roach, and two graduate players — Ryan Young and Neal Begovich — on Saturday.  

This season, Roach is averaging 14.3 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 3.1 rebounds per game. He’s also shooting 49.3% from the floor and 44% from beyond the arc. In his last game against UNC, Roach had 20 points. This potentially being their final game at Cameron Indoor Stadium could motivate players even more. 

UNC likely needs to stay out of foul trouble

Solving UNC center Armando Bacot is a tall task regardless of the opponent. This season, he’s averaging 14 points, 10.2 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks per game. Duke will certainly aim to put him in a position to get into foul trouble. 

The Tar Heels are a starter-based team, so Bacot and guard RJ Davis staying out of foul trouble will be key. Davis is averaging 21.5 points per game and scored 42 points on Feb. 26 against Miami.
