The Blue Devils are coming off a big win over Florida State in the middle of the week and have now won eight of their last 10 games. That said, they're just 3-7 against the spread over that same span and are 11-18 against the number on the year.
The Tar Heels have won seven of their last 10 games but fell to Virginia 43-53 on Monday night as a 3.5-point favorite. They're just 5-5 against the spread over their last 10 games but are 16-13 against the number on the season and are 10-4 ATS at home.
OUR PREDICTION: The Blue Devils have covered in five of their last six games in Chapel Hill and the road team has cashed in four of the last five meetings between these two teams. With this game being such a huge rivalry, this is too many points to hand a Duke team that won its last two games at North Carolina.
