Before the tournament started, I thought UNC had a shot at winning it all as a #4 seed. I still think they could be in the mix come the Final weekend, although Kentucky looms.
Wisconsin is a good team, no question, but giving me 5.5 points in this matchup, one that I think North Carolina can win outright, sign me up for a unit on the underdog.
NCAA Odds: North Carolina vs. Wisconsin Line: Wisconsin -5.5
The Badgers couldn’t shake Oregon last weekend (they were tied with less than six minutes to go) and the smaller Ducks out-rebounded Wisky.
UNC’s up-tempo offense hits a bit of a brickwall, but I expect them to chip away and eventually, that wall will teeter (like the retaining wall Don Giovvani’s Fencing put up in my parents backyard).
Roy Williams’ team has the talent, the tempo and the toughness to give this #1 seed all they can handle.
They might not win outright, but the Tar Heels have the game to move through to the Elite Eight.
