The North Carolina Tar Heels and Saint Peter's Peacocks face off on Sunday in a college basketball showdown in the Elite 8 at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. 

The Saint Peter’s Peacocks come into this game with a 22-11 record and they have gone 22-9-1 against the spread. When they entered the NCAA Tournament as a 15 seed not many expected them to beat Kentucky and no one expected them to still be in the tournament only one win away from the Final Four. The Peacocks have beaten Kentucky, Murray State, and Purdue to get to this point. In the last game against Purdue the defense had another big game giving up only 64 points and they were able to make the winning plays late to secure the victory. The entire tournament it’s been a team effort and it will be no different in this game. The top player against Purdue was Daryl Banks III who finished with 14 points. 

On the other side of this matchup is the North Carolina Tar Heels who sit with a 27-9 record and they have gone 19-16-1 against the spread. During the regular season, there were a lot of questions about this North Carolina team, but they have beaten Marquette, Baylor, and UCLA to get to this point. In the last game against UCLA they scored 45 points in the second half to secure the victory. Armando Bacot has been the top player all season for the Tar Heels averaging 16.4 points while shooting 58.8 percent from the field. There are four different players that are averaging at least 13.5 points per game.

Saint Peter’s is 8-0 against the spread in their last eight neutral site games as an underdog. The under is 8-2 in Saint Peter’s last 10 games played on Sunday. 

Saint Peter’s continues to be disrespected with their number and I am not betting against them at this point. They are a team that looks like they deserve to be here, and they play like a true team. Look for a strong defensive game from Saint Peter’s and that will be enough for them to cover the spread.
