Miami at UNC

Two ACC teams in need of a win collide Saturday when North Carolina hosts No. 12 Miami at 3:30PM ET from Kenan Memorial Stadium.

Bet Miami at North Carolina
Miami is 7-2 on the season and 5-4 against the spread. The Hurricanes have won two straight but covered in just two of their last five. The road team is just 1-8 in this series.

North Carolina is 6-3 on the season and 4-4 against the spread. The Tar Heels have won two straight and three of their last four, covering in those three wins as well. Two of the three North Carolina wins have been at home.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have made Miami 3-point road favorites over North Carolina on Saturday night. The over/under total for this game has been established at 42.5.

This pick is about both team’s strengths as the Hurricanes have the stronger offense, but the Tar Heels have the stronger defense. Miami is scoring 32.3 points per-game while the Tar Heels are giving up just 15.3 points per-game and only 250 yards per-game. Jacory Harris has shown that he can turn the ball over for Miami, as he has 12 interceptions with 18 touchdowns this year. If Harris can avoid turnovers, the Hurricanes should be able to cover the 3-point spread.

The UNC offense has struggled as quarterback T.J. Yates has nine touchdowns and 10 interceptions. The Tar Heels have performed poorly against worse defenses than Miami’s so look for the Hurricanes to keep the UNC offense in check and be able to find a way to post some points. With the spread so low, we suggest a pick of Miami to cover in a low-scoring affair.
