Bet Under in Miami-North Carolina Rematch

When the 2023-24 schedule was released, the late February matchup between Miami and North Carolina was expected to be one of the key games in the ACC. North Carolina has taken care of its part of the equation but Miami, coming off a run to the Final Four, has been a bitter disappointment. The Tar Heels are double-digit favorites against Miami for the third time in the last 14 meetings according to the NCAAB expert picks.

North Carolina went on the road and topped Miami 75-72 earlier this month to snap a two-game losing streak to the Hurricanes. It was the fourth straight game between the Hurricanes and the Tar Heels to go under the total.

Miami vs North Carolina ATS Pick: North Carolina -14

These teams are headed in different directions as North Carolina is 11-1 in its last 12 games while Miami has lost six games in a row.

When making the college basketball pick for this game, check on the status of Miami guard Nijel Pack.

Since losing to North Carolina, the Hurricanes fell to Clemson by 17 points and lost at home to Duke 84-55 while having more competitive games against Boston College and Georgia Tech.

It is really hard to have much confidence in this Miami team right now, especially if Pack continues to be sidelined.

 

Miami vs North Carolina Over/Under Pick: Under 154½

Each of the last four matchups between the teams would have finished under that total. Keep that in mind when looking at the best college basketball bets today.

Miami has been held under 80 points in each of its last six games while North Carolina went from scoring 96 points against Virginia Tech to putting up just 54 in a win over Virginia. Defensively, this Miami team bears little resemblance to Virginia but this is still a game that could land under the total.

 

Miami vs North Carolina Player Prop Pick: Cormac Ryan to score 14+ Points (-103)

Since being held to seven points on 2-of-6 shooting the last time that North Carolina played Miami, Notre Dame transfer Cormac Ryan has picked things up offensively for the Tar Heels.

Ryan is averaging 17.3 points over the last three games and is 14-for-29 from 3-point range.

He’s a solid bet at -103 to have at least 14 points and it could be worth the risk for him at +147 to score at least 16 points.
