Who We Like: I don't like this spot for UNC. The comeback win over Duke likely took a lot out of the Tar Heels and now they have to hit the road to take on a Wolf Pack team that upset them in Chapel Hill a few weeks ago.

The Tar Heels are just 4-10-1 against the spread in their last 15 games coming off an ATS win. They're also winless at 0-4-1 at the betting window in their last five road games and are 0-4-1 against the spread in their last five road games versus an opponent with a winning home record. Meanwhile, N.C. State has covered the spread in four of its last five home games.
