North Carolina has won eight of its last nine coming into today’s game to get to 20-4 overall and 8-2 in the ACC. The Tar Heels have failed to cover in their last two games and are 11-10-1 against the spread. UNC is 8-3 ATS at home, though this is now technically not a home game.

Notre Dame just hasn’t been the same team it was for about two weeks now. They are averaging just 70 points over their last five games and have lost four of their last five. While this game is no longer at UNC, I still think the Heels should be fine to cover. They will still have the crowd support and their offense should be able to overpower the Irish.
