College Basketball Picks – Tar Heels Wary Of Looking Too Far Ahead


College Basketball OddsThe No. 13 North Carolina Tar Heels have overcome a tough start to their season to climb all the way to the top of the ACC standings in to a tie with the defending national champions for first spot. The Tar Heels could have the chance to win the conference championship outright this weekend, but that opportunity comes with a big warning about looking too far ahead. In order to keep pace with the No. 4 Duke Blue Devils and get that shot at the title, the Tar Heels must first take care of the Florida State Seminoles on Wednesday night.

Odds: North Carolina – 1

The Seminoles have won three of their last four since falling to North Carolina 89-69 on the road, and will be eager to avenge that loss when they return home for a rematch. Florida State proved its merit when they took down Duke earlier this year, which has Tar Heels’ head coach Roy Williams wary of a potential upset.

College Basketball Betting Preview: North Carolina

Led by Tyler Zeller, the Tar Heels are right there with Duke in the race for the ACC title. This just one year after finishing 5-11, and in the same college basketball betting season that they started out with just four wins through their first seven games overall. Maturity and chemistry have been the two biggest factors, as North Carolina has rallied around Zeller to win five straight heading into Wednesday night’s action. Zeller and John Henson scored 16 each the first time these teams met, with freshman Harrison Barnes scoring a game-high 17 in the win. The Tar Heels had four players hit double-digit scoring totals in that win, and will need to do the same in this one.

College Basketball Betting Preview: Florida State

The Seminoles demonstrated their upset capability when they took down the Blue Devils earlier this season, but this game will be about a lot more than that. Florida State is two games back of the Tar Heels and Duke for the top spot, and there is a real possibility that this team can finish second if they can knock North Carolina off this week. This will be the Seminoles’ final game at home this season, and they have the chance to clinch a perfect record there against ACC opponents for the first time in school history.

College Basketball Betting: Outlook & Pick

The Seminoles are perfect at home this season, but in order to clinch that eighth win they will need to take down a North Carolina team that has won their last four meetings there. That will be no easy task as the Tar Heels fight for their chance to clinch the ACC title with a showdown against Duke looming this sports betting bonus weekend.
