UNC Tar Heels vs. WF Demon Deacons

NCAAB: 8:00 PM EST

Jan. 11, 2017

TV: ESPN2
Latest Odds : UNC -9 Total 165


The home town Wake Forest Demon Deacons (10 - 6, 1 - 3 CONF) are heading home to host the incoming #11 UNC Tar Heels (14 - 3, 2 - 1 CONF). North Carolina comes into this game having won two straight contests, rebounding nicely from a surprise loss to Georgia Tech. Wake Forest was just dispatched by UVA and the Demon Deacons have lost three of their past four games.

Wake Forest comes into this game having had trouble on offense over the past week. Wake Forest hasn't hit their offensive average (80 PPG) in four of their past five games. Wake Forest is paced on offense by forward John Collins (16 PPG on 59% shooting, 9 RPG). Collins should be ready for a big game against a North Carolina team that will focus on taking him out of the picture. Wake Forest is considerably outsized in this match up.

North Carolina has a rebounding advantage over Wake Forest by nearly 8 rebounds. North Carolina gets a ton of second chance buckets and that's why the Tar Heels are scoring 89 PPG on offense while shooting 47% from the floor as a team.

UNC Forward Justin Jackson (18 PPG on 46% shooting) will be tasked with leading the squad to yet another win as the end of the season approaches. Hot guard Joel Berry II (25 PPG over past two games) is also someone to watch.

Recent Betting Trends:

Tar Heels are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall.

Demon Deacons are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 Wednesday games.

Under is 10-4 in Tar Heels last 14 overall.

Under is 5-1 in Demon Deacons last 6 vs. Atlantic Coast.

Free Betting Pick: Wake Forest Demon Deacons -9

We like North Carolina to win this game but it will be much closer than this large spread would indicate. Deacons are coming off solid loss at Virginia and returning home Wake Forest will make UNC work for this one. Final Score Prediction, UNC Tar Heels win but fall short ATS 80-76.
