As North Carolina prepares to launch mobile sports betting later this winter, college basketball fans are eager to start wagering on their favorite teams. This includes fans of the storied Duke Blue Devils program, which under coach Mike Krzyzewski claimed five national titles and reached 17 Final Fours before his retirement after last season. Now under new head coach Jon Scheyer, Duke will remain a popular team for North Carolina sports bettors once the North Carolina sports betting apps officially go live.

These North Carolina sports betting sites will offer a full menu of Blue Devils wagering options. Individual game bets on spreads, totals, and moneylines will likely prove the most popular due to their simplicity. Bettors can also combine multiple game bets into a single parlay wager for a chance at bigger potential payouts. There will also be a variety of Duke player and team prop bets match-to-match, along with futures odds on the Blue Devils to win the ACC or cut down the nets as national champions.

As of mid-January, Duke’s odds to win it all sit around +2000 at most sportsbooks. A $100 wager on those odds would pay out $2,000 should Scheyer lead the Blue Devils to the title in his first season. Individual player props will also be featured, like over/under 20.5 points for star center Kyle Filipowski or odds on whether he’ll take home National Player of the Year honors.

To attract new users, these North Carolina sports betting apps will offer special sign-up promotions and North Carolina betting promos. Expect a Caesars Sportsbook North Carolina promo code for a first bet offer up to $1,000 or more in bonus bets. The BetMGM North Carolina bonus code could have a similar first-bet offer matched up to $1,500. There’s also likely to be a FanDuel North Carolina promo code in the range of $200 in bonus bets.

New bettors must be at least 21 years old and physically located in North Carolina to wager when mobile launches. And those fortunate enough to turn a profit should be aware they’ll owe a 5.25% tax on any net annual sports betting winnings per state law. Bettors can claim multiple sportsbook promos, however, so take advantage of the best offers from FanDuel, DraftKings, Caesars and more. Just note bonus bets are typically for new users only, so pick your spots wisely when getting started.
