College Basketball Best Bet: NCAA pick for Virginia Tech Hokies vs. North Carolina Tar Heels at DraftKings Sportsbook


The Tar Heels have had a few embarrassing blowout losses and many people are writing them off. This creates the ultimate bounce back spot if they want one.

UNC’s numbers haven’t been pretty lately — 22 and 28 point road losses on Tuesday and Saturday. But this team was totally different when it comes to playing at home vs away/neutral games. This team is only 3-6 straight and 2-7 ATS from the Dean Smith Center. At home the heels were decent to cover with 5-4 ATS but are a perfect 9-0 right off the bat.

I’m willing to put the points here as UNC needs a convincing win at this point. VT has gone 3-4 SU/ATS on the road this season, with their four losses topping their last five on the road. After a good start to the season, the Hokies are on a 1-5 ATS slip going into a game that has been historically difficult for them. VT have lost their last seven road games at UNC and are only 1-5 ATS inside the bottom six overall in this matchup.

Good buy low spot for the more talented team. Expect UNC to have some advantages both in the backcourt and in the interior. Heels need this one and should be running away with it at home to try and salvage their season.
