Duke and North Carolina Renew Their Rivalry Thursday Night in Chapel Hill

Tar Heels trying for eighth straight victory with Duke in town

Nothing would be sweeter for the Tar Heels then to defeat Duke on their home court, extending their winning streak to eight games. The Tar Heels are still unranked, but have won seven straight games and are making a case for the tournament. They might be able to cement a spot in the tourney with a home win over the Blue Devils on Thursday night in Chapel Hill.

Blue Devils in midst of very tough portion of schedule

Due to this game being rescheduled, the Blue Devils will now have to play four games in eight days, with one of those games coming against number-one Syracuse on Saturday night. Preparing for a game that you wind-up not playing can be difficult, but having to do it a second time can be even harder. In a rivalry such as this one, the players should have no problems at all preparing for each other.

With the forecast for the Chapel Hill area showing no sign of ice or snow tonight, this ACC contest will finally be played between Duke and North Carolina. Over at Sportsbetting.ag, the Blue Devils are favored on the road by 1.5 points. With a seven-game winning streak on the line, we will bet on the Tar Heels with the UNDER 151 points scored at -110 tonight.
