UNC Season Odds

The upstart North Carolina Tar Heels are not only looking to make some noise in the ACC this year, but hopefully nationwide as well.

Bet 2010 BCS National Championship Odds

Butch Davis guided the Tar Heels to an 8-5 overall record last year, including a 4-4 mark in the ACC. UNC came up just short in the Meineke Bowl, losing to West Virginia 31-30. Still, the season was highly regarded as a success and offered this program promise for the future.

Some key starters returning offensively for the Tar Heels are quarterback T.J. Yates, running backs Shaun Draughn and Greg Little. Yates threw for 1,168 yards, while Draughn rushed for 866 yards and Little racked up 146 receiving yards.

Defensively, returning linebackers Quan Sturdivant racked up 122 tackles last year and Bruce Carter added five sacks. Cornerback Kendric Burney and safety Deunta Williams also return, as each player had three interceptions apiece last season.

Oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL have taken note that the Tar Heels could be dangerous this year, giving them 32/1 odds to win the 2010 BCS National Championship. Granted, 32/1 odds don’t signify that UNC is a favorite by any means. But considering this football program has been a massive dud throughout the years, the odds certainly suggest that the Heels offer some value for bettors.

The Heels did lose a couple of key receivers in Hakeem Nicks and Brandon Tate, but the offense is chockfull of potential. And the defense was incredibly opportunistic last year and only has to replace two starters. If Yates can take the next step, North Carolina could certainly take the ACC reigns from Virginia Tech this season.
