North Carolina vs. Tennessee Predictions Against The Spread 12/17/17

Who will come away with a big win today when No. 20 Tennessee plays host to No. 7 North Carolina at 3PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at, this game is considered even, as both North Carolina and Tennessee are not giving any points to the other. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 155.5 points. Today’s game takes place from Thompson-Boling Arena in Knoxville, Tennessee.

North Carolina is on a four-game winning streak right now to sit at 9-1 on the season. The Tar Heels are 6-3 against the spread, covering in three of the four games during this win streak. UNC is averaging 88.1 points per game on offense while allowing 71.1 per game on defense. Luke Maye is leading UNC with 19.9 points and 10.5 rebounds per game while Joel Berry II is adding 16 points and 3.7 assists per contest.

Tennessee is also riding a four-game winning streak entering today’s game. The Volunteers are now 7-1 on the season with a 4-2 mark against the spread. Also like the Heels, the Vols have covered in three of their last four games. Tennessee is averaging 79.4 points per game on offense this season while allowing 65.6 per contest. Grant Williams is leading Tennessee with 16.1 points and 7.3 rebounds per game while Admiral Schofield is adding 11.9 points and 4.5 rebounds per contest.

Bet on North Carolina vs. Tennessee

North Carolina has won four straight meetings with Tennessee, covering the spread in three of the four encounters as well. However, UNC is just 1-6-1 against the spread in its last eight after a cover and 5-11 ATS in their last 16 road games against a team with a winning record at home. Tennessee has covered in five straight against ACC opponents. The public betting is heavily behind North Carolina today, but I think the Vols rise to the occasion at home today.
