Best North Carolina Elite 8 Bet: North Carolina State-Duke

North Carolinians are a lucky bunch today. Not only are there TWO teams from the Tar Heel State playing (neither of them the Tar Heels, ironically), but the highest-value bet for any college basketball game today is a player prop from the North Carolina State-Duke game — and betting player props on college basketball is legal in North Carolina.

D.J. Burns has upped his pub since the ACC Tournament, and a Wolfpack upset over Duke will likely involve him heavily. And sure, that could mean through his playmaking. After all, Burns has dished three-plus assists in 21 of 39 games this year, including two games with seven in his last four.

These are the reasons the under on 2.5 assists for him is only getting a 45% expected win rate.

However, what we’re looking at here is market value. Burns’ under is +140 at bet365, whereas sharp book Pinnacle and OddsShopper both have these odds at +123. That leads to the under being 7.5% +EV long-term, with a recommended bet size of $17 — not a huge wager, but enough to pull a solid return should Duke limit Burns’ passing.

The Blue Devils have one of the top interior defenses in the country, so even though Burns got them for four assists in both matchups against them, regression may be headed his way. At 7.5% +EV, that’s worth a shot.

Bet365 March Madness Promo: Early Payout If Team Goes Up 15+

Don’t forget about bet365’s promo that has been running throughout the tournament and will go through the title game: Early payout if the team you bet goes up at least 15!

Rather than having to pick the winner of the game, you can get your bet paid out if the team you chose gets up by at least 15 points at any point!

This applies to any pre-game single and/or parlay bet on the moneyline or game result for Men’s Tournament games. If you bet just the moneyline on, for example, Arizona for the Sweet 16 matchup against Clemson and the Wildcats go up by 15 with 10 minutes left in the first half, congrats — your bet is a winner.

Parlay legs with moneylines and/or game results will also be marked as won should the team you bet go up by 15-plus.

Now, the Burns bet above won’t do you any good here, but our Market-Based EV Bets Tool can still help you nail down a team that will go up by 15 or more — check out bet365 lines to find the best options.
