North Carolina Vs Duke Spread & ATS PickNoah Williams
The North Carolina Tar Heels are visiting the Duke Blue Devils, but it is an NCAA Football betting affair instead of their more famous College Basketball rivalry. This game is set to kickoff at 7:30 PM et on Thursday, November 10th at Brooks Field at Wallace Wade Stadium.
The visiting Tar Heels have been consistent this year with a 7-2 record straight up while being almost as good against the spread at 6-3. The Duke Blue Devils are the same 6-3 record ATS, but the truth factor hurts for them with a REAL record of 3-6.
North Carolina Vs Duke Spread & ATS Pick
The 10.5-point college football Week 11 betting spread that Las Vegas oddsmakers made North Carolina a favorite by seems fairly conservative to start, and it wouldn’t surprise me to see the Tar Heels as a 13-point betting favorite by kickoff.

Bet on North Carolina -11.5 Because…
The Tar Heels look sharp after an impressive 48-20 win against their ACC Coastal rival Georgia Tech last week putting them at No. 15 in the AP and No. 12 in the Coaches Poll. Coach Larry Fedora has the offensive machine crackin’ with 636 total yards against Georgia Tech last week in an impressive win.
Here’s the kicker: the last time they were able to put up any numbers that could have eclipsed that was last year against…you guessed it – DUKE! It is like Christmas is coming early again, but you better hurry because this college football point spread has already gone up a point.
Bet on Duke +11.5 Because…
As an underdog they have been excellent at covering the betting spread for the last 3 years 10 times while losing only 4 times. This year they are even better with a 4-1 record as an underdog against the spread.
Duke may have lost their last 3 games consecutively, but they were to the Louisville Cardinals, Georgia Tech and Virginia Tech who are all worthy and powerful opponents. The Blue Devils only lost by 3 points the last 2 games covering the point spread, and if they can stay within 3 here they will beat the betting college football point spread in this game easily.
ATS Pick & Final Score Prediction
North Carolina should be a great NCAA football bet, but try to play it before it goes up to 13 points.
The offense of the Tar Heels is superior to the Blue Devils, and I expect them to throw for more than their 20th ranked passing total of 306.8 yards a game. The defense against the pass by Duke just doesn’t have enough of anything to even slow them down, and I would also expect the North Carolina Tar Heels to go over their 34.2 points that they average per game. They also have the 21st ranked pass defense which should make sure Duke can’t get within any kind of striking distance.
