UNDER Trending Between Virginia-UNC

One of the best games on this weekend’s college hoops slate sees the sixth-ranked North Carolina Tar Heels take on the third-ranked Virginia Cavaliers. If you’re an NCAAB totals bettor, you’ll be thrilled to know the UNDER is trending in a big way. The Cavs have gone UNDER in seven straight, while UNC is 1-6 O/U in its last seven.

Shark Bites
  • The Tar Heels are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Virginia
  • The UNDER is 5-0 in the Tar Heels last 5 road games
  • The Cavaliers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. the ACC

Virginia is painfully aware its late season schedule is no walk in the park. The Cavaliers have two games against teams ranked in the top 11 in the nation after losing to Miami. Virginia trails the ACC-leading Tar Heels by two games in the conference standings, meaning tonight’s matchup presents the perfect opportunity to prove they are the top team in the conference.

North Carolina is consistent in one department - shooting. The Heels are ninth in the country in scoring at 83.8 points per game and have shot 51.7 from the field in the second half on Wednesday, the fourth time in the past five games they’ve made at least half of their attempts after halftime.
