Bet on North Carolina Because…

There are some strong trends that favor the Tar Heels. North Carolina is 6 and 1 ATS in their last 7 games following an ATS loss. The Tar Heels are also 4 and 1 against the spread in their last 5 games following a game where they scored 20 points or less. North Carolina is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games after allowing less than 170 yards passing in their previous game.

Bet on Miami Because…

Miami should have beaten Florida State in their last game. The Hurricanes played about as well as possible before losing 19 to 20 to Florida State. How did Miami lose?  A missed field goal, of course. The Canes know that they are a missed field goal away from being undefeated and possibly ranked in the Top 5. That’s how close it was for Miami against the Seminoles.

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction

The Miami defense was fantastic when holding Florida State to only 20 total points. Miami was in FSU QB Deondre Francois’ face all night long. The Miami defense eventually got worn down but it held firm when it mattered most.

North Carolina looked terrible in a 3 to 34 home loss to Virginia Tech in their last game. Tar Heels’ QB Mitch Trubisky was 13 out of 33 for 58 yards. He didn’t throw a TD pass. He threw 2 interceptions. Trubisky faces an even tougher defense on Saturday. Most football handicappers are on North Carolina in this game. I can’t do it.

The home team is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings between these 2. North Carolina is 1-3-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Miami. I think Miami goes into this game looking to make a statement and climbing back into the Top 10.

My final score prediction is Miami 42, North Carolina 13.
