Notre Dame @ #13 North Carolina

Location – Dean E Smith Center, Chapel Hill, NC

Tip- 9p

Line – UNC -15

 

We have another super Tuesday pick as the fighting Irish head to Chapel hill to battle the Tar Heels. Notre Dame is coming off a victory as they beat Boston College 69 (nice) -66. North Carolina, on the other hand is coming off an embarrassing loss to Louisville 83-62 as 11-point favorites. It was the worst loss at home under coach, Roy Williams.

Notre Dame is led by Temple Gibbs who averages 14.7pts/gm They were without him against BC due to flu-like symptoms. He is listed as probable and we have no reasons to think he will miss this game. The Fighting Irish average 75.2 pts/gm. The one stat that sticks out and will be the key in this game is the Fighting Irish average 9.5 turnovers/gm which is 2nd in the nation. They do a great job of controlling the ball and the tempo of the game.

We were on UNC last Tuesday as they covered for us at NC St. They are now averaging 88pts/gm, which is still good for 7th in the nation. Luke Maye is averaging a double/double, 14.4 pts/gm and 10 rebounds.

No doubt UNC will come out motivated after the embarrassing loss on Saturday. Like we stated before, the Irish will have to limit turnovers and control the tempo. If this turns into a track meet, ND will not like the outcome.  However, we trust the numbers and Notre Dame’s ability to keep this closer to a 10-point game and gladly take 14-15pts.
