Against The Spread: Duke vs. UNC, Round 1


by Josh Goodson

UNC hosts Duke for the first of their two annually scheduled showdowns. Since you “can throw out the records and rankings for this one” I won’t trouble you with those. Let’s get to what matters. 

Vegas stuff:

Opening Line: UNC -1.5

….then the money came in

Current line (as of Thursday a.m.): Duke -1
O/U: 166
