Winning the conference is one of those steps, since doing that on any of the Power 5 conferences usually means that the chances of making it into the final four are that much better. We are in the thick of the conference schedule right now, which is where seasons are made or broken. Right now, the UNC Tar Heels are very much in the hunt for the ACC, and they will try to maintain that when they host the Virginia Cavaliers this weekend. The Tar Heels come into this one as a big 23 ½ point favorite, with the O/U set at 56 ½.

Why bet on the Virginia Cavaliers

It is shaping up to be another miserable season for the Cavaliers, who come into this game having won just once in 6 attempts this season. That includes losing both of their ACC Conference games to this point in the season, and with all of that in mind, this looks likely to be another long Saturday for the Cavs. With their start to the season, the Cavaliers are now just 1-8 SU in their last 9 games overall, as well as being 4-9 SU in their last 13 meetings with the Tar Heels. They have also won just once in their last 8 games away from home. If there is a bit of a silver lining to be found here, it’s that the Cavaliers have covered the spread in 5 of their last 6 games against UNC. They have seen the UNDER git in 14 of their last 19 games played in Week 8 of the season.

Why bet on the UNC Tar Heels

Over the past few seasons, the Tar Heels have been viewed by many teams as a bit of a dark horse pick, but they have never really lived up to those expectations. They might finally be doing it this season, though, as they come into Week 8 with a perfect 6-0 record and one of the top two spots in the ACC Conference. They are also sitting at #10 in the nation, poised to potentially move up higher if they can maintain this form. You would certainly like them to do that this weekend, especially when you consider that they have won 4 of their last 5 home meetings with the Cavaliers. The Tar Heels have also been a good pick against the spread, covering in 6 of their last 7 games overall. In terms of the point total, the UNDER has hit in 8 of the last 12 for the Tar Heels.

North Carolina vs Virginia Expert Pick and Series Prediction

I think the Tar Heels win this one in rather comfortable fashion, but I am not totally sold on them covering the spread. Despite the aforementioned point total trends, I think there us a very good chance that this one goes OVER.
