Betting on the North Carolina Tar Heels (odds)
Record: 15-8 Overall/7-5 Conference
North Carolina is licking its wounds after a 63-57 road loss to archrivals Duke Blue Devils last Saturday. It’s the Tar Heels’ second loss in a row, as they also fell prey to the Pittsburgh Panthers at home on Feb. 1, 65-64. Perhaps seeing the Demon Deacons again will rejuvenate the slumping Tar Heels. After all, North Carolina dominated the Demon Deacons in a 88-79 win at home on Jan. 4. RJ Davis and Armando Bacot played huge in the first meeting with Wake Forest, scoring 27 and 21 points, respectively. Wake Forest’s mediocre defense can create the same – if not more – opportunities for North Carolina.
The Under is 4-0 in North Carolina’s last four road games.
Betting on the Wake Forest Demon Deacons (odds)
Record: 15-9 Overall/7-6 Conference
Wake Forest finally stopped its four-game losing skid last Saturday, as the Demon Deacons thumped the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in South Bend to the tune of an 81-64 score. Damari Monsanto exploded for 28 points on 9/15 shooting from the field, while Tyree Appleby produced 16 points to go along with nine rebounds and seven assists. Monsanto and Appleby should once again pace Wake Forest in the rematch versus North Carolina. The two combined for 33 points, 11 rebounds, and 10 assists in the loss to the Tar Heels. The Demon Deacons are far from being an elite defensive team, but their offense is a different story, as they are second in the conference with 112.0 points per 100 possessions adjusted.
Wake Forest is 4-2 against the spread in its last six games as the home team.
North Carolina wins, 79-72.
