ATS Matchup Insight | CappersPicks Insider Preview

The Kentucky Wildcats take on their third big test of the year and they are hoping third time is a charm. In their first test Michigan State got out of the gate early and Kentucky never really recovered. In their second test they played Baylor, and it was a back and forth game, but they came up on the short end of the stick.

Now, they play a North Carolina Tar Heels team that has been up and down so far in the young season. In their third game of the season – as -14 point favorites – the Belmont Bears ended up upsetting the Tar Heels at home. But, North Carolina would bounce back by beating the Richmond Spiders and going into Louisville, Kentucky, and beating the Louisville Cardinals as 10 point underdogs.

The good vibrations didn’t last long though as North Carolina ended up  getting upset once again, this time on the road to UAB. But, once again, North Carolina would bounce back as 10 point underdogs and beat the Michigan State Spartans on the road.

Key Numbers:

North Carolina in their last 5 games North Carolina has won straight up in 4 of those games and ATS they are 4-1 as well. Kentucky in their last five games are 4-1 straight up and 2-3 ATS.
Key Players: Freshman Kentucky forward Julius Randle has had a great season so far. He’s averaging 17.8 points per game, and 12 rebounds a game. Freshman guard James Young has been very dynamic himself he’s averaged 13.9 points per game and in his last game he scored 21 points and pulled down 9 rebounds. Freshman guards Aaron Harrison and Andrew Harrison are having pretty identical season. Aaron Harrison is scoring 13.8 points per game and Andrew Harrison is scoring 10.3 points per game.

On the other side, sophomore guard Marcus Paige is averaging a team high 18.8 points per game, averaging 3.3 rebounds, and 4.5 assists per game. Sophomore forward Brice Johnson is pulling down a team high 6.9 rebounds per game and scoring 13.6 points per game. Last, but not least, junior forward James Michael McAdoo is scoring 13.0 points per game, and averaging 5.9 rebounds per game.

Danny’s FREE NCAA Basketball Pick:

All in all, this should be a good game. Both of Kentucky’s losses have come against top 25 teams in the Michigan State Spartans and the Baylor Bears. North Carolina is a top 25 team as well and while they have had a couple of bad losses, they have two great wins as well. It seems as though North Carolina gets up for these big games. I’m looking for North Carolina to get up for this game and they get the job done versus the very talented, but not yet tournament ready Kentucky Wildcats.

Pick: North Carolina Tar Heels -3
