North Carolina Tar Heels vs. North Carolina State Wolfpack Preview

In a big ACC rivalry the North Carolina Wolfpack (14-12) host the 19th ranked North Carolina Tar Heels (20-6). NCAAB lines have the visiting Tar Heels as 5-point favorites in this game.

In their last games NC State played on Sunday and lost to Maryland 87-70 and North Carolina played on Saturday and beat Boston College 48-46.

These 2 ACC teams have been so-so in terms of laying some green on them this season with North Carolina at 12-11 and North Carolina State at 10-12 ATS.

The Tar Heels schooled the Wolfpack by 20 points earlier in the season in their house, but they will need a better effort than they gave in their win over Boston College to beat NC State tonight. Boston College has one of the worst defenses in the ACC and UNC still only shot 36.8% from the floor and only scored 48 points.

NC State has issues on defense, as in their last 4 losses they have given up an average of 81 ppg. On top of that they are likely be without one of their best defenders in F Richard Howell (7.7 ppg 6.5 rpg), who suffered a concussion in the last game.

The Wolfpack have to try to contain 7-foot Tar Heels F Tyler Zeller (14.5 ppg 7.3 rpg) and F John Henson (11.2 ppg 9.1 rpg). NC State cannot allow these 2 to dominate the lane.

NC State must get good games from their frontcourt of forwards Tracy Smith (14.6 ppg) and C.J. Leslie (11.6 ppg 7.6 rpg).

In the game earlier this season between these 2 rivals NC State only shot 36.4% from the floor, only hit 3 of their 12 3-point shots, and were killed on the boards. For the Wolfpack to win this game they will have to step up on D and knock down their shots.

North Carolina has a better frontcourt and a much better defense. While they will not win by 20 points against they should have no trouble winning, as they will beat NC State in their house and cover the spread.

Trends:

NOCAR are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games overall.
Under is 23-7 in NOCAR last 30 vs. Atlantic Coast.
Under is 20-7 in NOCAR last 27 road games.
NCSTA are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 Wed. games.
NCSTA are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games overall.
Over is 11-3 in the last 14 meetings.

Pick: North Carolina -5
