ACC hoops sees the North Carolina Tar Heels on the road to take on the Miami Hurricanes.

The Tar Heels started off as a 3.5 point favorite and that number is now down to 2.5. The total has gone from 161.5 to 160.
North Carolina Tar Heels
North Carolina may not be as dominant as they have been in past years, but they still have been solid this season. If they keep up their strong play, I would eventually expect to see them get ranked in the top 25.
The Tar Heels made easy work of the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets on Saturday by a score of 88-65. They will be in for a much bigger challenge on Tuesday when they hit the road to face this Hurricanes team on the road.
In terms of wins and losses, these guys have been good, but they have not played their best ball when they have faced the better teams. Some examples that come to mind are the losses to Kentucky, Tennessee, and Michigan.
The offensive attack was quite balanced in their last game, as four players ended up reaching double figures. The leading scorer was Armando Bacot, who had 29 points and 12 rebounds. Also, RJ Davis had 21 points and 6 dimes.
They may not be a ranked team, but Miami has had a solid season so far. They still have some work to do if they wish to be put in the category of best team in the ACC, but they are headed in the right direction.
Right now, the Hurricanes have a record of 13-4. Getting that 14th win of the year will be no easy task, but they are definitely up for the challenge.
This club last played on Tuesday, where they lost to the Florida State Seminoles by a score of 65-64. They will look to get back on track when they face off with the Tar Heels.
As you can see by the final score in their last contest, it was a back-and-forth game, but they just were not able to execute down the stretch. Any loss is tough, but those close ones have to really drive a coach and his players nuts.

Free North Carolina Tar Heels vs. Miami Hurricanes NCAAB Summary:
Miami already knocked off a prominent school from the state of North Carolina a little bit ago and they will look to do so again when they face off with the Heels.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Miami ATS
Even though the Hurricanes are not an elite team, they are still solid and it would be a good win for North Carolina if they pulled it off, but they if they do not, people will continue to say they do not beat anyone that is all that great.
I really feel the Tar Heels are going to have their hands full in this ball game, especially when they try and stop that offense for Miami. They might win the game, but I am not sold on them covering.
For me, the 2.5 is just too high to lay with a team in the Tar Heels that I do not totally trust. I can see this being a back-and-forth game that comes down to the team with the ball in their hands last.
I like the Hurricanes getting the 2.5 points at home here.
