NCAA SYR at THE North Carolina
Just like most of my friends we all grew up being North Carolina fans and all for different reasons. My reason was that I was a Huge Julius Peppers fan and it got me to really like the team. But before that I learned at a very young age that I hated Duke, coach K and everything they stand for.
On to the game. Roy is going for his 800 win this game so the players are going to be a little amped up for this one. Carolina had a great win over the weekend against #9 Florida state winning by 13 ( the line was 12). They are 16-3 for the year and carry some firepower like every year as they start getting their stride. Syracuse is 11-7 this year and has won their last three. They have been playing pretty tough defense letting up only 66 ppg and are trying to ramp their efforts back up hitting the real meat of their schedule before the tournament. The line this game is I think a big one for Syracuse defense – 14.5 but they have been beaten pretty bad by some middle of the road teams this year. North Carolina is 8-3 against the spread at home so that’s good enough for me. I’m taking Carolina -14.5 and the over 152.5.
