Who does the public like in this game?

Pittsburgh is coming off a win against Syracuse yesterday, but the Panthers were unable to cover as they blew a big lead late. The Panthers are just 2-6 against the spread in their last eight. UNC has won four of its last five, including a 25-point win against Miami. The Tar Heels haven’t been great at covering in conference play this season, but those numbers have improved over the last few weeks and they are facing a Pitt team that had to give it everything to hold off Syracuse 24 hours ago. Look for UNC to win comfortably today.
