North Carolina Tar Heels DFS Snapshot

Brady Manek supplied 22 points (9-18 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds and three assists over 43 minutes during Monday's 88-79 overtime victory over Syracuse. Manek is no Armando Bacot when it comes to his two-way impact, but there's no question he's been an elite scoring threat for the Tar Heels in recent weeks. He has scored in double digits in each of his last 10 appearances and is averaging 17.0 points per game in that span.

Duke Blue Devils DFS Snapshot

Trevor Keels totaled 27 points (10-15 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, two assists and one steal across 34 minutes during Tuesday's 86-56 victory over Pittsburgh. Keels delivered a season-high scoring output in this one, but he has struggled in terms of consistency and has surpassed the 15-point mark just twice since the start of February. This shouldn't surprise anyone, though, as Duke have lots of offensive threats and this means the ball gets shared quite often.

College Basketball Betting Prediction

The best bet on the board is the over, which is 8-2 in the Tar Heels’ last 10 games overall, 4-1 in their last five road games and 7-1 in their last eight games when coming off a win. On the other side, the over is 4-1 in the Blue Devils’ last five games overall, is 5-1 in their last six games following a win of more than 20 points and is 4-1 in their last five games as a favorite.
