Saturday marks Coach K’s last game at Duke’s Cameron Indoor Stadium, and what better way to send out the long-tenured head coach than a rivalry game against UNC?

Let’s check out the betting odds, where the money’s at, and some trends that apply.

Duke-North Carolina Betting Odds

Duke Odds -11.5
North Carolina Odds +11.5
Over/Under 152.5

The underdog Tar Heels have actually attracted more betting tickets leading up to tip.

North Carolina’s pulling in 57% of the wagers across retail sportsbooks, with the number dipping from an opener of +12.5 to as low as +11; the best price on the Heels is currently at MGM, which is hanging an 11.5 at standard -110 vig.

The total, meanwhile, is getting flooded with over money.

A whopping 72% of tickets are locked in that way, despite the number dropping a few points from 153.5 to as low as 151.5.

We’re also seeing around 63% of the total moneyline wagers on the Blue Devils, at a steep price of -610.

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.
