No.2 North Carolina has been the March Madness betting favorites since sportsbook odds were released in the preseason, and now the Tar Heels are on the verge of claiming their fifth ACC regular-season title in six years. However, a formidable opponent stands in the way in the form of their bitter rivals, No.7 Duke.
Duke vs North Carolina odds – Sunday, March 8, 4:00 PM ET
The Blue Devils will share the ACC title with Carolina if they win, and a win is imperative as they were beaten 101-87 at home by the Tar Heels back in February. Tyler Hansbrough gets most of the attention, but it was Ty Lawson that carved apart the Blue Devils in that game, as he scored 21 of his 25 points in the second half. The game opened up and Duke tried to run with Carolina, which played right into Lawson’s hands as there is no Duke player can stop him from getting into the lane, and the Blue Devils have no shotblockers to speak of.
The Tar Heels will be the online betting favorite in this contest, but the Blue Devils have won two of their last three trips to the “Dean Dome”. North Carolina hasn’t lost at home since opening the ACC schedule with a loss to Boston College, and you know Hansbrough isn’t going to let the Tar Heels lose, to Duke of all teams, in his last game in front of the UNC fans. Look for Hansbrough and Lawson to lead the Tar Heels to the ACC title, and remember, March Madness betting is right around the corner!
