NCAA college basketball handicappers have been burned often by both teams this season but this game has added college basketball betting significance. The North Carolina Tar Heels lack of NCAA college basketball value is of no surprise.
The Tar Heels are always one of the most popular teams to wager on with the college basketball betting public and this causes their NCAA college basketball board value to often be inflated from what is actually merited.
North Carolina was the top team in the ACC with a NCAA college basketball record of 25-3 straight up but just 11-15 against the spread including 5-6 on the road. The Tar Heels have been a solid NCAA college basketball “over” team with a mark of 16-10 over the total this season.
North Carolina has been a poor NCAA college basketball board value as a chalk with a mark of just 10-15 against the spread. From February 3 through February 28 the Tar Heels went on a poor NCAA college basketball stretch in which they went 2-5 against the spread. Just 2 of those games in that stretch went under the total.
Tyler Hansbrough has been the main NCAA college basketball asset for the Tar Heels as he led the team in scoring with an average of 21.2 points per game.
The Virginia Tech Hokies have slipped a notch this season but still have a shot at the “Big Dance” if they can close strong in the NCAA college basketball regular season and then play well in the ACC tournament. Virginia Tech had an overall NCAA college basketball record of 17-11 straight up and 9-14 against the spread.
Virginia Tech has been a terrible college basketball betting value at home with a mark of 2-8 against the odds. The Hokies have gone over the total in 15 out of 22 lined games this season. The Hokies had a terrible February with just one payoff in 7 games against the spread.
