North Carolina is 4-9-1 ATS in their last 14 game and 4-9-1 ATS in their last 14 road games. The under is 6-1 in North Carolina’s last 7 games. Boston College is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Sunday games. The under is 5-0 in Boston College’s last 5 home games. The home team is 5-2 ATS in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings.

Boston College has played very well on the defensive end of the court and is going to have to do the same here to avoid North Carolina from playing the style they want to. Besides the recent loss to Kentucky, North Carolina has been playing very well. I like them to continue that here.
