The Tar Heels are really excited about their future and it is going to begin this season. Their offense looks awesome on paper.
Syracuse was hoping to build off a 10 win season last year but it never came together. It was a long season. At the very least they have lots of excuses this season.
There is very good reason the Tar Heels are a heavy favourite for this one.
Expectations are pretty low at Syracuse right now. A fair amount of talent returns but this team was not good a year ago so there is no buzz.
Tommy DeVito had solid numbers on the surface last season but the offense was only 8th in scoring in the ACC. He needs to create more big plays.
The best returning player on the defense is Andre Cisco. He had five interceptions last season at free safety and is a second-team all-conference performer.
Only one player returns from the front six though. The defense last season was 13th in the conference overall but you have to be concerned that the talent is not any better for this season.
Coach Dino Babers does not have the talent to go toe to toe with rivals in the ACC. If he can come up with ways to create more explosive plays on offense and defense they might have a punchers chance in this game and all season long.
North Carolina Tar Heels
All of the excitement in Chapel Hill is justified for this season. The Tar Heels look like they will have a monster on offense and an experienced defense should be very good as well.
Sam Howell was amazing last season as a freshman. Other than all this pandemic stuff there is no reason to think he can’t be even a little better in 2020.
He returns two 1000 yard receivers to throw to and the Tar Heels can mix it up with two running backs who had more than 900 yards a year ago. The offense is stacked.
As great as the offense is the best player on the team could be Chazz Surratt. The linebacker is all over the field and led the team in tackles and sacks. The Orange are going to have to be ready for him.

Free Week 2 NCAA Football Pick
This is a big number for a game that likely neither team is fully prepared for due to the circumstances. As a result I would not make a big play but North Carolina is the side to back.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Tar Heels -22.5
I think North Carolina should be able to name their score here. I am expecting Howell and the offense to be very sharp. They probably don’t punt all game long.
Getting down big is going to put the Orange in the worst spot. They are going to have to force the action and are more likely to make some mistakes that only makes it easier for Howell and that supercharged offense.
