Duke & UNC Betting Records
Duke, name brand and all, enters the weekend with the second-best record against the spread (17-11-2, 60.7%) in the ACC, trailing only Wake Forest.
That clip essentially matches Coach K’s overall ATS record at home (361-275-11, 56.8%).
However, Duke has returned a net deficit for bettors against UNC during the Krzyzewski Era, going just 46-48-2 ATS overall (48.9%).
North Carolina, meanwhile, comes into Saturday just 14-15-1 against the number on the season.
They’ve been one of the better money-makers for bettors playing the total, as the Tar Heels own an 18-11 over/under mark.
