COLLEGE FOOTBALL FREE PICK: North Carolina is just 1-5 against the spread in its last 6 road games, but UNC has covered in four straight Thursday games. South Carolina is 5-1 ATS in its last 6 games against ACC opponents. UNC has hit the over in 4 of its last 5 games while South Carolina has hit the over in 5 of its last 6. Despite the impressive numbers South Carolina has put up on defense, Larry Fedora is doing great things with the UNC offense. Look for the Tar Heels to score some points, and in turn, allow some points with its defense. Both teams have playmakers that can break a big play at any moment, so the points should pile up quickly.
