The North Carolina and Clemson Tigers face off on Tuesday in a college basketball showdown at Littlejohn Coliseum. When these two teams faced off in February of 2021 it was Clemson that won 63-50. That win by Clemson was a big upset at the time.

North Carolina comes into this game with a 16-7 record overall and they have gone 10-13 against the spread. In the last game against Duke, North Carolina really struggled, giving up 87 points while the offense could only manage 67 points. This is an offense that has been good, but their defense has been an issue all season. The Tar Heels are averaging 78 points while their defense is giving up 72 points per game. Armando Bacot has been the best player for North Carolina averaging 16.3 points while shooting 56.5 percent from the field. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Clemson Tigers who sit with a 12-10 record and they have gone 13-9 against the spread. Clemson has had some big wins, but at times they have had some bad losses. In the last game against Georgia Tech the offense could only manage 64 points and lost by five points. Clemson is averaging 72.6 points while their defense is giving up 67.2 points per game. PJ Hall has been the top player for Clemson averaging 14.9 points while shooting 48.7 percent from the field and 30.2 percent from behind the three point line.

Clemson is 9-2 against the spread in their last 11 home games. The Tar Heels are 6-1 against the spread in their last seven games following an against the spread loss. The over is 5-1 in Tar Heels last six games overall. The over is 5-1 in the Tar Heels last six road games against a team with a winning home record. 

North Carolina is an elite offensive team and I expect they are going to run up the score in this game. Clemson is also going to find success against this terrible North Carolina defense also, and that will lead to this game being a shootout. Back the over to cash with ease.
