North Carolina faces Syracuse on Monday, March 1st for an NCAA basketball ACC matchup. 

North Carolina is coming off a 78-70 win over Florida State in its last game at home on February 27th. North Carolina mounted an impressive comeback in that game, beating the Seminoles in a very important home conference game. North Carolina is now 15-8 overall and 9-5 in conference play this season. North Carolina is now in sixth place in the ACC standings. North Carolina is also 10-12-1 against the spread this season. North Carolina's leading scorer so far this season has been F Armando Bacot, who has scored 11.2 points per game for the Tar Heels. North Carolina as a team has scored 74.3 points per game and has shot the ball at a 44.0% clip from the field. North Carolina has also allowed 69.4 points per game to its opponents as well. 

Syracuse is coming off an 84-77 loss to Georgia Tech in its last game on the road on February 27th. Syracuse has now lost two straight games and has almost no chance to make the Big Dance this season (unless the Orange win the ACC conference tournament). Syracuse is 13-8 and 7-7 in conference play this season. Syracuse has struggled against the spread, as the team has an 8-13 record against the number. Syracuse's leading scorer so far this season has been F Alan Griffin, who has scored 15.5 points per game for the Orange. Syracuse as a team has scored 76.3 points per game and has shot the ball at a 44.0% clip. Syracuse has also allowed 71.6 points per game to its opponents as well.

North Carolina opens as a 1-point favorite and the total is set at 149.5. I like North Carolina to pick up an important road victory and further its case for the NCAA Tournament. This may not be the best UNC team we have seen in recent years, but I do believe it is a tournament team. A win here can go a long way for the Heels.
