UNC Is The Best OVER Bet In The Nation

INC Brice Johnson

The staggering offense of the North Carolina Tar Heels has been a boon for totals bettors as they have gone OVER in 13 of their 17 games this season, including nine of their past 10 contests. UNC has the second-ranked offense in the nation (86.4 points per game) and has six players averaging double-digit points this season. The Tar Heels will look to continue their ridiculous offensive play when they visit the Wake Forest Demon Deacons Wednesday.

Shark Bites
  • Wake Forest is 1-6 SU in their last seven games against UNC.
  • Marcus Paige has tallied a combined six points and has shot 2-for-17 in the past two games.
  • Wake Forest is 7-2 ATS in their last nine games as an underdog of 16 or more points .

UNC is currently riding a nine-game winning streak and has won those games by an average of 16.9 points. Despite huge point differentials during their winning streak, laying a lot of points should be approahced with caution, as UNC is just 1-4 ATS in their last five games when favored by 16.0 points or more.

Wake Forest comes into Wednesday’s game coming off their worst performance of the season. The Demon Deacons lost 83-55 to Syracuse Saturday while shooting a season-low 32.6 percent from the field. Devin Thomas has been the real bright spot for Wake Forest as the senior is averaging 16.4 points and 10.5 rebounds per game.
