Tar Heels



Syracuse -5.5 Point Spread

Over 147.5 Game Totals

Against The Spread Pick

It is not every year I can say this, but unless the Tar Heels win the ACC tournament, they will not be playing postseason basketball. They got a win in this last game over NC State to snap their seven-game losing streak, however with a conference record of 4-13, UNC basically has nothing going for them. The Orange on the other hand are certainly on the bubble and cannot lose to a team like the Tar Heels. Syracuse crushed Pittsburgh in their last game to move to 9-8 in the ACC. Now, at home the Orange are only 6-11 ATS, but this is not a North Carolina team I want to put any money on.

Over Under Pick

This is not a total I am interested in betting, but with how the Orange have been playing defense, the over is what I will be looking at. Over the last five games alone, the Orange are allowing 74 points per game. It is not like North Carolina have been any better, as they are allowing points left and right like it is nothing. The over is 18-7-1 in Syracuse’s last 26 overall and 6-1-1 in their last 8 games against the ACC. Look for their to be plenty of scoring in this game and take the over as a lean.
