North Carolina scored the heaviest goal in a match between 8th and 9th seeds in NCAA Tournament history, defeating Marquette 95-63.
Now Hubert Davis’ Tar Heels faces No. 1 seed Baylor East, who took care of Norfolk State in the first round. Who has the advantage in this with a berth in Sweet 16 on the line?
The following is odds from WynnBET Sportsbook as well as statistical analysis of each team before making the best bets:
Total: 149 (Above -110/Under -110)
North Carolina considered part of it on Thursday, but the whole team has struggled to compete in elite leagues throughout the season, which is why I found myself leaning towards Baylor early.
North Carolina had an advantage on the glass with Armando Bacot when Baylor was defeated in court, but Heels didn’t force enough turns to slow down the Bears’ offense. UNC ranks 10th in the nation in gross margin, and Baylor’s offense has cost The Heels at the expense of characters like Adam Flagler and Matthew Mayer.
Davis’ Heels looked good on Thursday in a big win, but this is a huge step up in class for them and I think we see Baylor imposing its will on their ACC opponents.
LEAN: Baylor -5.5
