North Carolina Tar Heels | ACC (Coastal)


Conference Analysis
Win Division (+2250), Win Conference (+15000)
SSA Model Pick: Division (Low Confidence)
The Tar Heels won the Coastal in 2015 and things have been downhill ever since. Last year was a rough one as Fedora posted his worst record at UNC going 3-9. But this year will be different as UNC has some athletes and should avoid a second straight losing season. Outside of Miami, there is no team that sticks out in the Coastal so at 22.5:1 North Carolina is an attractive pick to win the division.

Win Total Analysis
5.5 wins (+100/-120)
SSA Model Pick: Over (High Confidence)
In his first five seasons at UNC Fedora won 6+ regular season games each season. Last year was an anomaly and the Tar Heels will once again win 6+ regular season games this year. The logic is simple and it makes sense, take the over.
