North Carolina vs. Miami Prediction
Will North Carolina hang with Miami this afternoon when the ACC foes clash at 3:30PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Hurricanes are now 6-point favorites after opening as a 7-point favorite earlier this week. The total, meanwhile, is sitting at 63 points after opening at 64.5.
The Tar Heels are 7-2 against the spread in their last nine games in October and are 6-1 against the number in their last seven games following an ATS loss. They're also 7-1 against the number in their last eight games after allowing less than 170 yards passing in their previous game and are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games taking on a team with a winning record.
The Hurricanes are 4-0 against the spread in their last four games following a loss and 4-1 ATS in their last five games after accumulating less than 100 yards rushing in their previous game. Despite falling last week to Florida State, Miami is still 4-1 against the spread in their last five games overall.
OUR PREDICTION: North Carolina has won seven straight road games, which is the sixth-longest active streak in the FBS. As an unranked team, the Tar Heels have won three straight games against ranked opponents, which all have happened on the road. Seeing as how the Tar Heels cruised to a 59-21 win over Miami last season, I'll happily take the points with UNC today with the Hurricanes coming off a crushing loss to their biggest rival.
