NC State has some nice wins so far but this would be a big one for a likely bubble team.
North Carolina already has multiple losses in the conference but all have come on the road. This is a home win they should get.
NC State Wolfpack
The Wolfpack have probably been the most sporadic team in the ACC this season. They have had a hard time on the road, more recently barely beating a bad Pitt team.
There is actually a fair amount of talent with this group but if you look at their lineup and minutes it is clear they are still seeing how it all fits together.
Omer Yurtseven is a great talent and one they should exploit more. I think they are finally getting it and feeding the beat so to speak.
Top scorer Allerik Freeman came off the bench in the win over the Panthers. Their backcourt is kind of messy. Markell Johnson is a distributor but can’t score while the others never turn down shots.
North Carolina Tar Heels
The Tar Heels were humbled at Virginia Tech in their last game, losing by 11 as 3.5 point favourites. They are just 2-3-1 ATS on the road this season.
Luke Maye and Joel Berry each scored 23 in the loss. That is pretty good but not other player scored more than 5 points. Usually Carolina has better depth.
Theo Pinson is not going to be an all time Tar Heel but they need more from him. He is a good distributor but you don’t have to guard him. He can’t shoot.
There are no great teams in college hoops this season but it is still kind of a down year for UNC. The ceiling does not seem all that high.

Free NC State Wolfpack vs. North Carolina Tar Heels NCAAB Prediction:
The Tar Heels will be favoured at home. They deserve to be but I am not sure they have more talent than NC State.
NC State has not beaten the Tar Heels since 2015 and has not even covered in the last three. They will be up for this contest.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: NC STATE ATS
I like the Wolfpack in an underdog role but only if the number is at least -6. I can definitely seeing them win outright too.
