Carolina / Duke

Eric Osterman, manager of The SuperBook in Vegas ...


“We took a bet this morning from one of our sharper guys at Carolina +9. There’s also a lot of parlay play on Carolina"

“It’s safe to say we’re gonna need Duke tonight. As far as college basketball goes, that will be our biggest decision of the night.”

Osterman added that The SuperBook also has a handful of proposition bets on this Tobacco Road rivalry game.

“The individual player props for the Duke guys are seeing some play,” Osterman said, noting RJ Barrett’s points prop moved from 22.5 to 24.5, and Zion Williamson’s points shot from 23.5 to 25.5. “We’re also seeing a little action on the largest lead prop. We opened at 17.5, it’s down to 17.”

About 45 minutes ago ... Ticket count 2/1 in favor of North Carolina, money also 2/1 on UNC

However, in the last few minutes, line jumped from Duke -9 to Duke -10

"We were heavy on the 'dog. They just laid the 9, and we went back to 10. We're about even to the game now."

North Carolina enters its showdown against Duke, 8-1 against the spread (88.9%) on the road this season, the most profitable road team ATS in the country, covering the spread by 9.8 points per game.


Zince 2005, Duke is 9-1 straight up and 6-2-2 against the spread when playing a team at home in February or later that has covered at least 75% of its road games.

This will be the 12th time that Roy Williams and Mike Krzyzewski face off in a Top-10 matchup ... Roy Williams leads the series in such games 6-5 (5-5 at UNC, 1-0 at Kansas).

Someone bought 4 tickets for $9,080.25 each on StubHub

Courtside for Duke / Syracuse at the Dome are going between $2500 - $4000 ... Decent seats $600 - $800 ... upper deck endzone on opposite end $40 and you can't even see the court.

"Active bettors tonight here. $25,000 on Duke moneyline, $22,000 on Ohio State against the spread." Duke currently -550 moneyline vs. North Carolina. Buckeyes -7.5 vs. Northwestern.

"Heavy volume on UNC-Duke against spread, but have all been relatively smallish dime-sized wagers. The total has same amount of bets on both sides, and less than $20 splits the difference."

Total opened 165.5, peaked at 167, dipped to 163 early today, now back to 165.5

UNDER has been one of the best bets in basketball when Duke is involved, hitting in 17 of 25 games -- tied for second-most by any team in the nation. The Tar Heels have mostly split the total (OVER is 13-12) but have seen long stretches of UNDERs, including seven straight between December and January and two straight entering this one.


Yet Wednesday's game looks like a track meet at first glance. These teams feature two of the shortest average offensive possession lengths in the nation (UNC ranks third, Duke is 11th) with two efficient offenses. Should it stand, Wednesday's total of 166.5 would be the third-highest total in this series since 1997. Duke hasn't had a total that high since Dec. 8 against Yale. North Carolina had a total of 173.5 against NC State on Jan. 8 with the game finishing UNDER.

Only 36% of spread tickets are on -9.5 at The Action Networks contributing books

Duke has received less than 40% of bets in home games 26 times since 2005

The Blue Devils went 15-8-3 ATS in those games

PointsBet, a licensed sportsbook in New Jersey, said it refunded wagers in the form of credits to be used on future bets after Zion’s sneaker mishap.

Nike Inc, shares fell nearly 2% on Thursday and were last down about 1.4%

Johnny Aitken, PointsBet’s CEO for North America ...

“We are in a position to rule on injustices incurred in the betting world and invoke refunds to our loyal customers we feel have been on the wrong side of luck"


He would not disclose the total amount refunded but said it was “in the high five figures.”

Biggest public bet of the night and the conference tournaments so far is Duke -4. It has the highest public concentration (complicated metric) and largest public dollar figure by a mile so far. Books NEED Tarheels to at least cover but they rake it in with a UNC outright win.
