Offensive UNC A Boon For OVER Bettors

The North Carolina Tar Heels offense has been unstoppable over the past few weeks. UNC has averaged 90 points per game over their past seven contests with the OVER hitting in six of those affairs. The Tar Heels will look to run up the score again when they host the UNC Greensboro Spartans Monday.

Shark Bites
  • UNC is 2-6-2 ATS in their last 10 games.
  • Diante Baldwin has averaged 14 points and 6.7 rebounds in UNCG’s past three games.
  • UNC has 71 assists to 26 giveaways since their loss to Texas.

In the past two seasons the Tar Heels have decimated the Spartans on the glass outscoring their in-state opponents 97-54 down low. That could mean a huge game for Brice Johnson, who has become UNC’s go-to man in the post, as he has averaged 24.7 points and 9.3 rebounds in the past three contests.

The Spartans are a steady team all-around, with each of their starting five averaging between nine and 12 points per game this season. UNCG is also coming off a good performance against NC State, a game that saw the Spartans hold their opponents to a 40.4 shooting percentage.
