Against The Spread Pick

It seems like this is going to be a lost season for the North Carolina Tar Heels and it might be an uphill climb to even make the NIT. They come into this game having lost three in a row and they failed to cover the spread in each of those games. The first time these two teams faced the Panthers came away with an eight-point victory. In that game, Justin Champagnie and Trey McGowens both scored over 20 points, and the Tar Heels are going to have no answer for them in this game. Over the last five games, UNC is giving up 75.8 per game. In this game, the Tar Heels are going to struggle to defend and that will be the difference. Back the Panthers to cover the spread.

Over Under Pick

This is a total I would stay far away from, and there really isn’t a great play to even give a lean to. The first time these two teams combined to score 138 points, and there is no reason to think they can’t reach that number again in this one. It’s not even really a lean, but if you need to play it, take the over.
