Miami vs. North Carolina – 2/20/16 ACC College Basketball Odds and Trends

It’ll be a battle between two of the best in the ACC today when No. 5 North Carolina hosts No. 11 Miami at 1PM ET on CBS.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, North Carolina is favored at home today, as the Tar Heels are getting odds of -6.5 points against the Hurricanes. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 150 points.

UNC (21-5, 10-3 ACC) was sitting pretty in the ACC a few weeks ago, but the Heels have lost three of their last five, including a 74-73 defeat at the hands of Duke on Wednesday. Along with the losses, UNC is just 2-7 against the spread in its last nine games. Miami (21-4, 10-3 ACC) has gotten back into the ACC race thanks to the UNC struggles along with a five-game win streak. The Hurricanes have won eight of their last nine and are 5-2-1 ATS in their last eight games.

These two are meeting for the first time this season, but series trends support Miami. The Hurricanes have won and covered the spread in four of their last five meetings with the Heels. Miami has been an underdog in three of those five meetings and they have covered in their last two trips to UNC. The Heels are also just 2-3 ATS in their last five at home and Miami has covered in two straight on the road.
