With the Blue Devils set to face off against North Carolina for the first time this season, three of our men's basketball beat writers broke down some of the biggest questions surrounding the two teams this season and gave their predictions. North Carolina will host Duke on Thursday.
This college basketball wagering classic features the two star forwards in Bagley and Maye.
Wednesday night, a popular online ticket hub listed tickets for the game for prices ranging from $170 per seat to more than $1,000 per seat. This is probably the best rivalry in all of College Basketball, and both these teams could take down a national title this season. It was the third loss against the spread in Duke's last five games.
NCAA Basketball Betting Pick: Duke Blue Devils and over the total. The home team is the underdog in this game, but the Tar Heels are hungry for a win.
"Honestly it's only one rivalry game with Duke, I don't count NC State as being a rivalry", said Berry. Especially with a team that lost a bunch of big players, North Carolina can't have been expected to be ideal this year. UNC has beaten NC State in 27 of 31 games under Roy Williams.
BL: Duke is better than North Carolina, but that doesn't mean it will win in the Dean Dome. Law enforcement officials encourage anyone looking for tickets to Thursday's game to only purchase tickets from a trusted source. Their most recent appearance on the show was on March 4th, 2017, a home game against the Blue Devils that they won 90-83. On paper, Duke wins the matchup at every position-and especially in the post.
