With North Carolina sports betting now legalized, Saturday’s matchup between the North Carolina Tar Heels (14-3, 6-0 ACC) and the Boston College Eagles (11-6, 2-4 ACC) is garnering extra attention from bettors across the state. Using popular North Carolina betting apps from top sportsbooks like BetMGM, fans can not only cheer on the Tar Heels but also wager on the outcome.

The game tips off at 2:15 PM ET at Silvio O. Conte Forum in Boston. Those unable to attend can still watch live on The CW. With a spread of -7.5 favoring North Carolina, the Tar Heels are expected to continue their four-game road winning streak against Boston College. However, bettors looking for value may want to consider the Eagles catching over a touchdown at home.

In addition to the point spread, BetMGM currently has the over/under set at 155.5 points. North Carolina games have gone over 10 times already this season, so another high-scoring affair could be in store. BetMGM also has an exclusive BetMGM North Carolina bonus code offering users two can’t-miss specials this weekend:

  1. Bet $10, Win $200 if either team hits a three-pointer
  2. Bet $10, Win $300 TD bonus if your team scores a touchdown

These North Carolina sportsbook promos represent the type of value and low-risk, high-reward betting opportunities that make legalized sports gambling so popular. Whether wagering on the moneyline, spread, or prop specials, be sure to do your research beforehand. Check out team trends and statistics as well past matchups. For example, Boston College has covered the 7+ point underdog spread only once this year.

While this specific game doesn’t carry championship implications, that hasn’t stopped BetMGM from posting futures odds. Boston College’s chances of cutting down the nets sit at 0.1 percent. For bettors, that equals +100000 moneyline odds if the Eagles manage to stun the world. North Carolina’s ceiling appears much higher, so their futures would warrant consideration as a March Madness dark horse.

No matter if betting the Tar Heels or Eagles this Saturday, take advantage of legal North Carolina sports betting and the promotions offered by sportsbooks. There’s never been a better time to put your college basketball knowledge to the test!
