North Carolina vs. Iowa College Basketball Prediction

The over has cashed in five straight Iowa games and is 4-0 in the Hawkeyes’ last four games after scoring more than 90 points in their previous game. The over is also 4-0 in their last four games following a straight up win of more than 20 points, is 4-0 in their last four home games when facing an opponent with a road winning percentage of greater than .600 and is a perfect 7-2 in their last nine games following an ATS win. The over is 4-0 in Iowa’s last four home games and is 7-1 in its last eight games coming off a win as well.

On the other side, the over is 7-3-1 in the Tar Heels’ last 11 games coming off an ATS loss and given how good both teams have been at the betting window of late, I see more value in the total than I do the side. Points should not be at a premium tonight in Iowa City.
