Michigan vs. North Carolina Pick

College Basketball Predictions: Michigan vs. North Carolina 11/29/17

Will No. 13 North Carolina have any trouble at home when it takes on Michigan tonight at 7:30PM ET in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, North Carolina is favored at home tonight, as the Tar Heels are getting odds of -10.5 points against Michigan. The over/under total has been set at 145.5 points. Tonight’s game takes place from the Dean E. Smith Center in Chapel Hill, North Carolina and will air live on ESPN.

Michigan has won three straight coming into this game, including a pair of wins in the Maui Invitational. The Wolverines are now 6-1 on the season and 3-3 against the spread. However, they have covered in their last three games. Michigan is averaging 74.8 points per game this season while allowing only 59.5 per contest. The Wolverines are being led by Charles Matthews, who is averaging 16.7 points, 5.4 rebounds and 4.1 assists per contest. Moritz Wagner is adding 15.3 points and 8.6 rebounds per game.

North Carolina is coming off its first loss of the season, a 63-45 loss to Michigan State in the PK80 Tournament. The Tar Heels are now 5-1 on the season and just 3-2 against the spread. UNC is putting up 84.8 points per game while allowing 71.8 per contest. Luke Maye has been leading the team this season with 19 points and 10 rebounds per contest while Joel Berry II is putting up 15 points and 3.6 assists per contest.

Bet on Michigan vs. North Carolina

These two have no recent meetings to consider. However, UNC is 24-10-2 ATS in their last 36 home games and 4-1-1 ATS in their last six games following a loss. Michigan is just 2-5 ATS in their last 7 against ACC opponents and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 Wednesday games. The public betting is putting 51 percent of the wagers on Michigan right now, but I don’t think the Wolverines are ready to hang with UNC tonight.
