Pick Details

(631) NC State vs. North Carolina (632) 2:00 PM | Sat, Jan 23 2021
Sport: NCAAB | Star Rating: 6.0 Evaluation: Win (600)
UNC (-230) @ Fanduel

I'm playing UNC on the moneyline. Yes, I like the Tar Heels to cover the spread. However, at this price, I also really like them to win the game. While that may have some scratching their heads, I have UNC winning this game roughly 8 times out of 10. That equates to a much higher moneyline than this. UNC is 15-2 the past 17 home meetings in the series, 2-0 the past two years. The Tar Heels come in with revenge on their minds, having lost by three points at NC State, back in December. The Tar Heels have had time to gel since then and they're now catching NC State off three straight losses. Last time out, the Wolf Pack lost by 32 points. While the Heels are just 15-19-1 ATS their last 35 home lined games, they're 25-10 SU in the same games. Catching the Wolf Pack at the right time, revenge-minded UNC wins this one. 


What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
