The Duke vs. UNC rivalry is one of the most famous rivalries in all of sports and Duke has held the upper hand in recent years with a 7-2 SU and 5-4 ATS edge. This game was supposed to be played last Wednesday, but was postponed to Thursday due to snow. Duke enters the game as a slight 1.5-point favorite, according to the NCAA college basketball betting lines.
