Duke vs. Charlotte odds heading into game week

Duke opens the season as road favorites against in-state foe Charlotte

NCAA Football: Charlotte at Duke Jaylynn Nash-USA TODAY Sports

It’s ACC vs. Conference-USA to kickstart the college football season in the state of North Carolina as the Duke Blue Devils will travel south to Jerry Richardson Stadium to meet the Charlotte 49ers. The game will take place on Friday, September 3 and will kick off at 7 p.m. ET on CBS Sports Network.

The David Cutcliffe era in Durham may be reaching its conclusion this season as the Blue Devils have trended down over the past few seasons. The Blue Devils weren’t competitive throughout a rough 2-9 campaign in 2020, one in which they led the nation in turnovers.

Charlotte is entering year three of the Will Healy era and are simply looking forward to the sweet comfort of consistency. The 49ers had a start-stop 2020 season due to COVID and ultimately finished the year with a 2-4 record.
