Tar Heels Look to win ACC Title

After beating Duke at home, the Tar Heels looked to be ready to run away with the conference title. But, a home loss to Clemson has them sweating a little. It was nice for the Tar Heels to grab a road win, but they need to be ready to go if they want to keep the conference lead.

Orange Struggles Continue

Tar Heels Top Orange

North Carolina will be tested in this game. The Orange are never an easy team to beat, especially when playing on the road. But, this is not the same talent that Syracuse has had in previous seasons. One team is much better than the other, and that is going to play out in this game. When push comes to shove, the North Carolina Tar Heels win this game, and cover the spread over the Orange. Bet North Carolina -8 over Syracuse on Tuesday.
