NCAA Basketball Betting Odds:
North Carolina Tar Heels
UNC enters this evening’s action sporting a 6-1 record. Interestingly enough, North Carolina recently got upset 92-89 by unranked Texas. Although they were able to bounce back by taking care of No. 17 UCLA 94-78, that loss is still very concerning. Ultimately it cost North Carolina a couple of spots in their national ranking. But at the end of the day, UNC can climb the national rankings with a dominant outing against No. 7 Michigan. So can we expect a dominant outing out of UNC this evening? Looking over the numbers, it’s clear they won’t be getting any favors from Michigan. Although the Tar Heels are scoring a ton more per game, 96.6 points per game to the Wolverines’ 70.8, their defense fails to compare to Michigan. Although North Carolina is rather dominant at an average of 70.8 given up per game, the Wolverines are a straight force to be reckoned with seeing as how they only give up 48.3.
Players to Watch: Cameron Johnson (16.4 ppg, 5.9 rpg, 1.4 apg), Coby White (15.7 ppg, 1.9 rpg, 3.6 apg), and Luke Maye (14.4 ppg, 8.6 rpg, 3.6 apg).
The Wolverines charge into this evening’s action flashing an undefeated 6-0 record. All in all, Michigan has looked extremely dominant this season. Granted, they’ve faced mostly unranked opposition. But the one they did face a nationally ranked opponent, it just happened to be No. 8 Villanova on the road. Ultimately that contest ended in a landslide in Michigan’s favor 73-46. It was pretty clear that Nova had no answers for Michigan’s stout defense. It will be interestingly to see how UNC handles themselves against Michigan’s defense this evening.
Players to Watch: Ignas Brazdeikis (15.7 ppg, 5.8 rpg, 1.2 apg), Charles Matthews (14.5 ppg, 4.0 rpg, 1.0 apg), and Isaiah Livers (9.2 ppg, 5.3 rpg, 1.5 apg).
