Team Total

North Carolina Over (72.5)

  • North Carolina will go up against UConn at Madison Square Garden tonight in the Jimmy V Classic and we are going for the underdog team total which have been successful for us over the last few years

  • UConn comes in 13th in defense to this point in the season but the two ranked opponents they played where right around 72 at 71 and 69.

  • UConn protects the rim but they have not been good at defending three pointers. They rank 316th in the country against the three allowing opponents to hit at 37.2%.

  • North Carolina is going to be looking to push the pace and shoot the three in this game which I think they will have success doing.

  • UNC has gone over 72.5 in all 8 games this season averaging 86.3 ppg and that includes 100 vs #10 Tennessee and 87 vs #20 Arkansas
