He also brought down seven rebounds. Cole Anthony accounted for 13 points, seven boards, six assists and four steals. Armando Bacot tallied 12 points and 15 caroms.

College Basketball Betting Trends

North Carolina

The Tar Heels are 0-4 ATS in their last four games overall. North Carolina is 0-5 ATS in its last five games following a straight up win.


The Wolverines are 40-15-2 ATS in their last 57 Thursday games. Michigan is 33-15-3 in its last 51 neutral site games.


Michigan is a disciplined team that probably deserves to be ranked and it might be next week after a strong performance here. The spread is tight for good reason and I think it could be even tighter. The Wolverines have a couple top-50 wins over Creighton and Iowa State, with both of those wins being arguably better than UNC's best win which was at home over Notre Dame in its opener. I like U-M in this spot.
