Duke basketball head coach Mike Krzyzewski will take the court for the final time in Chapel Hill. 

Saturday night will truly be the first time the last season of Duke basketball head coach Mike Krzyzewski becomes a reality.

The ceremonies the Hall of Famer received on opening night at Madison Square Garden and other venues around the country were nice, but things will start to set in when he takes the floor at the Dean E. Smith Center for the final time.

As of last week, North Carolina (16-6, 8-3 ACC) had no plans on honoring the all-time leader in victories in college basketball history, but the game will still take on more of an atmosphere than a regular Duke vs. Carolina game.

More importantly, the game is extremely critical for the tournament hopes of the Tar Heels as Hubert Davis’ team does not have a Quadrant 1 victory this season and is teetering on the bubble of the NCAA Tournament.

No. 9 Duke (18-3, 8-2 ACC) is looking to seize control of first place the ACC and try to inch closer back to the 1-line for the NCAA Tournament.

Duke Injury Report vs. Notre Dame

Trevor Keels returned to the court on Monday night against Notre Dame as the Blue Devils are fully healthy once again.

Keels missed the previous three games due to a lower leg injury suffered against Florida State.

Duke vs. North Carolina Odds: Spread, Over/Under & Betting Pick

WynnBET’s College Basketball Odds lists Duke as a 3-point road favorite against North Carolina while the over/under is set at 150.5.

North Carolina is somewhat similar to Notre Dame in the fact that the team thrives off the 3-point line, and that will be a point of emphasis for the Blue Devils to defend on the road.

However, where the Tar Heels and Irish differ is that North Carolina has the pure athletes to match up with Duke, unlike Notre Dame.

The Blue Devils have to compete on the backboards with North Carolina and try to stay even with their rivals from downtown.

We will take Duke to win and cover the spread while the total will go under the number listed.
