Free NCAAF Pick:
The North Carolina Tar Heels may be one of the few competitive pieces in the ACC this season as they dominated the Syracuse Orange even without their explosive offense clicking. The Charlotte 49ers weren’t able to stick with a good Appalachian State team as Chris Reynolds struggled with 2 interceptions, but North Carolina has arguably one of the top offenses in college football which spells trouble for Charlotte. Sam Howell and Dyami Brown are explosive, but the ground attack proved to be a difference against Syracuse as Carter and Williams serve as a one-two punch. The Tar Heels defense will rattle a Charlotte team as Mac Brown has talent all over the field, and they should run away with a fairly simple victory. Final Score Prediction, North Carolina Tar Heels win and cover ATS 41-10.
