Can I bet on Tar Heels football?

Yes, as long as you are at least 21 years old and located in North Carolina, you can bet on UNC Tar Heels football games at NC online sportsbooks.

The new state law legalizing online sports betting allows wagering on college sports, including sports involving NC colleges and universities. Some states with legal sports betting do not take wagers on in-state schools. For example, Virginia has online sports betting but bans wagers on Virginia college teams.

No such prohibitions affect NC sportsbooks, though, which means you can bet on the Heels as well as all other North Carolina college football teams.

How to read UNC football odds

Learning how to read UNC football odds is not difficult. The NC sportsbooks all use American odds, which display either a positive or negative number. If the number is negative, that means you’ll win less than your stake amount if your bet is successful. If the number is positive, you’ll win more.

For example, if the odds are -115, that means for every $115 you bet, you’ll win $100. Meanwhile, if the odds are +220, for every $100 you bet, you’ll win $220. Those payouts are proportional and will adjust according to the stake (e.g., a winning $10 bet at +165 will pay out $16.50).

Moneyline or “straight” bets on one team to win usually show the favorite with negative odds and the underdog with positive odds. For example, say UNC is a favorite over Duke: UNC’s odds might be -140 and Duke’s odds +125. Spread bets and totals (or over/under bets) will have similar odds—usually around -110. For those wagers, the sportsbooks try to set the line in a way that will encourage equal betting on both sides.

You’ll see the same American odds format used for other bets, too, including player and team propsparlaysfutures (such as shown above), and when live betting.
