North Carolina vs. Virginia Free Pick
It’s a big collision in the ACC tonight when No. 3 Virginia hosts No. 7 North Carolina at 6:30PM ET on ESPN. Who will emerge as the winner?
North Carolina is 23-5 on the season, 12-3 in the ACC, 5-4 on the road and 12-15-1 against the spread. Virginia is 21-6 overall, 10-5 in the ACC, 13-0 at home and 12-13 against the spread. These two have yet to meet this season, but the road team has won and covered in the last two meetings.
Virginia is coming off a tough 64-61 loss at Miami on Monday. The Cavs have lost their last two road games by a combined four points, but at home, they have been perfect. In their last two losses, Virginia has bounced back to win by 9 points and 20 points, respectively, in their next game. The Tar Heels are on a two-game win streak since their loss at home to Duke, but UNC has lost two of its last four on the road. UNC has struggled away from home this season, going just 3-6 against the spread. UNC relies a lot on its offense, which will be a problem against a UVA defense that allows just 57.6 points per game at home.
