OUR PREDICTION: Despite covering yesterday, the Hurricanes have been a poor bet at neutral sites. They're just 3-7 against the spread in their last 10 neutral site games and have failed to cover in seven of their last 10 neutral site games when they're an underdog as well. The Tar Heels, meanwhile, are 4-1-1 against the number in their last six games overall and are 19-7-2 at the betting window in their last 28 neutral site games. They're also 19-6-2 against the spread in their last 27 neutral site games when they're favored.
