Wilmington unable to hang with Tar Heels

UNC-Wilmington couldn't stay with 14th-ranked host North Carolina Wednesday night by a score of 97-69.

Jeantal Cylla paced UNC-Wilmington with 16 points on 6-of-14 shooting to go with six rebounds and two steals. Jay Estime' added 12 points to go with four boards.

College Basketball Betting Trends


The Seahawks are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games versus the Southern Conference. The over is 13-5 in the last 18 UNC-Wilmington road games.


The Paladins are 11-5 ATS in their last 16 games overall. Furman is 32-15-1 ATS in its last 48 home games.


Furman is still getting a little too much love from oddsmakers and although it should win this game, I'm taking advantage of the bloated lines for the time being. The Seahawks kept it within six points at Furman last single and I'm expecting another contest that stays tighter than the line suggests.
