Duke vs. North Carolina Free Pick: After a big time day of college hoops picks, the game that you are going to want to settle down and watch on ESPN is the clash between the Duke Blue Devils and the North Carolina Tar Heels. These two teams absolutely cannot stand each other, and this should be a bloody game even though there isn’t much but pride on the line. The Tar Heels are favored by a point and a half, but there are going to be those that can argue that either side should be favored on the college basketball odds. Tip time is set for 9:00 p.m. ET in Chapel Hill.

This really is a heavyweight fight. If the Tar Heels can win this game and roll through the ACC Tournament, there is a good chance that they could get as high as maybe a No. 4 seed for the dance. We already know that the Blue Devils are basically guaranteed a spot on one of the top two lines, and we tend to think if they can win this one, they are locked into the top line going into the ACC Tournament. We love the athleticism that Duke brings to the table. Remember that Ryan Kelly didn’t play when these two teams met the first time, and even with Kelly out of the fold, it was clear that Duke was the better of the two squads down the stretch. Now that Kelly is back and is scoring at will, it’s tough to suggest that North Carolina is going to win this one in spite of the fact that it is the hotter of the two teams at the moment. This six-game winning streak for North Carolina has been built upon playing the shoddy teams in the ACC. Now, it’s back to the big boys, and it’ll show.
