Always happy to get a little lucky, and that's exactly what happened in Week 4 with Kentucky covering by a point, and hitting the Indiana/Western Kentucky over by .5 points.

North Carolina (-20) vs. Duke
UNC has been completely Jekyll and Hyde, but in their two home games, they've scored 59 points in each, won and covered relatively easily. Losing last week, and facing their cross-town rival will surely have then focused and ready to explode again offensively. Duke has faced Charlotte, Northwestern, North Carolina A&T and Kansas. This is a huge, huge step up in class and skill. They'll have some smoke and mirrors to get some points early, but they can't pass and UNC will key on RB Mateo Durant, shutting him down and winning with ease.
