UNC-Duke Live Betting Odds

  • 8:45 p.m. ET: There are no books left at -9. Everyone sits between -9.5 and -10. The total hasn’t budged off 165.5 and looks like it will close there.
  • 7 p.m. ET: Duke money has flooded the market this evening, pushing the Blue Devils to -9.5 in Las Vegas and -10 at some offshore books.
  • 4:40 p.m. ET: One offshore book has moved to -9.5, but most of the market is still at -8.5/-9. The majority of money and betting tickets are on North Carolina.
  • 3 p.m. ET: There hasn’t been much movement this afternoon, but more books are starting to move toward -8.5. If you’re comfortable with UNC at +9, it may not be a bad idea to take the Heels now, though more money will shape the market closer to tip.
  • 12:30 p.m. ET: Throughout the early afternoon, North Carolina money has begun moving the spread off -9 and down to -8.5 at some books. A flood of over money has also pushed the total back up to 165.5 at Westgate and 165 at many other books.
  • 10:30 a.m. ET: The total reached its lowest point at around 10:30 a.m. ET, dipping all the way to 163.5. The spread remained at -9.
  • 8 a.m. ET: Westgate opened this line at Duke -9.5, then moved to -9, where it sat all night. The total got as high as 167 but shortly after 8 a.m. ET, began crashing.
