North Carolina Tar Heels vs Duke Blue Devils
NCAA Football: Saturday, November 10th 2018 12:20 PM EST TIME
It has been a very rough season for the North Carolina Tar Heels as they look to escape another blowout loss against the Duke Blue Devils. As for the Devils, they come into this game with some momentum as they are on the verge of a college bowl game appearance.
The North Carolina Tar Heels have been hit with the worst team in the ACC as they are still looking for their second win of the season. The Tar Heels started off with a much-needed push as they got a win against the Pittsburgh Panthers early in the year, but managed to fall of course and have been losing left and right. They come into this game with horrible losses against Virginia Tech, Syracuse, and Virginia as they have yet to have that quality win they have been waiting for all season long. Can that change on Saturday?

Much Better Season
The Duke Blue Devils have really turned their football program around as they enter this game on the edges of getting into a bowl game. They are looking for the 7th win of the season as they only have had three losses on the season which have come against the hands of Virginia Tech, Pitt and Virginia where they simply created too many turnovers. The Blue Devils might not have the most impressive offense, but they can close games out and that is what matters in this one against the Tar Heels.

Even though the Blue Devils have struggled on offense, they sure can get the running game going as in their upset win against the Miami Hurricanes running back Deon Jackson finished with 113 yards and a TD on the ground. Expect QB Daniel Jones to be the X-Factor in this game.
- Blue Devils are 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 home games.
- Blue Devils are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games vs. a team with a losing road record.
- Tar Heels are 6-2 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.
The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.
Full-Game Side Bet
The North Carolina Tar Heels might of had an awful season thus far, but they are still making me money. Anytime I have bet with them they are a perfect 2-0 on the season as the Underdog is also 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings. It words well as the Tar Heels get close but still let the win slip away. However cover the spread with ease.
Prediction: Tar Heels
Full-Game Total Pick
This Total bet goes hand in hand with my ATS pick as the Under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The Duke Blue Devils do not get fancy on both sides of the ball as they play a rough and tough type of style of play. Do not expect any big scores or plays as these two teams keep it under the total.
