OUR PREDICTION: The Tar Heels are just 1-4-1 against the spread in their last six road games, are 2-5 against the number in their last seven games overall and are winless at 0-4 at the betting window in their last four road games versus a team that owns a winning home record. On the other side, the Tigers are a perfect 4-0 against the spread in their last four games overall, are 4-1 at the betting window in their last five games as a home underdog and have covered in nine of their last 13 games as an underdog either home or away. They're worth a flier tonight.
