For much of this season, Duke has been in disarray, a team bedeviled by injuries, Grayson Allen’s behavioral issues and coach Mike Krzyzewski’s back surgery.

But tonight’s game against No. 8 North Carolina (21-4) is an opportunity for the 18th-ranked Blue Devils (18-5) to get back on track.

Duke, which is beginning to heat up after winning three in a row, is a 2-point home favorite over the Tar Heels in another chapter in college basketball’s greatest rivalry.

This is a good night for rivalries – Purdue is a 2-point favorite at Indiana, and UCLA is a 4½-point home favorite over Oregon.

“Carolina-Duke is going to be the biggest game of the night, so we decided to have some fun with it,” said Matthew Holt of CG Technology sports books.

CGT posted several propositions on the game, including:

Team to make the first 3-point field goal:

Duke minus-140; North Carolina plus-110

North Carolina’s total points: 79.5

Under minus-130; Over plus-100

Duke’s total points: 82.5

Under minus-130; Over plus-100

Team to score first:

Duke minus-120; North Carolina minus-110

First team to score 15 points:

Duke minus-125; North Carolina minus-105

Team to make the most 3-point field goals:

Duke minus-½ minus-125; North Carolina minus-105

Player to score more points:

Duke’s Grayson Allen minus-½ minus-145

North Carolina’s Joel Barry plus-115

Player to score more points:

Duke’s Luke Kennard minus-½ minus-140

North Carolina’s Justin Jackson plus-110
