    770 Wofford +10.5

    I hear a lot of folks talking about how this is big time revenge game for the heels, since Wofford won in the dome last year. I'm not buying it. I don't see the heels coming into this game sleeping either, because they know damn well Magee and Jackson killed them last year. This is the biggest game in Jerry Richardson stadium's short history, and the demand for the tickets was so strong that no tickets were available to the public.

    The real angle here is that UNC is starting a freshman at point guard who has shown me to be pretty fast and loose with the ball. Coby White is going to be a good player but he tends to be a little too aggressive and I can see that leading to turnovers in early part of his career. Backup PG Seventh Woods is more turnover prone.

    Also, UNC still appears to be unable to guard the three. They were probably the worst defensive three point team in the country last year, so they are likely to improve. I do think that Roy will put K Williams on Magee, since Kenny is the best defender, but being the best defender on the heels is not a very high bar.

    I do think the heels win this game, but you are getting a lot of value with Terriers just because UNC is such a big name and ranked high. I see this game being close.

    UNC 81 Woff 77

    Sorry for no write up. Elon is terrible. I know they return a lot of starters, but if they are mostly bad players who cares. Roy is doing Elon a favor by allowing them to open up new arena with a game against UNC. Freshman should be more relaxed and I see this one getting ugly quickly. Elon is one of the worst rebounding teams and Carolina is generally one of the best.

    723 Stanford over 156

    These two coaches know each other quite well. Haase played for Roy at Kansas and coached under him for years at Carolina. He knows Roy is going to want to push the tempo, and there is probably not much he is going to be able to do to stop it with a bunch of sophomores and freshman. Actually, Stanford likes to push the tempo themselves.

    The heels finally get their first home game and I could see them having a better shooting night, since they have had to play in two very small venues to start the season. The Dean Dome is one of the larger college basketball arenas in the country, so it could affect the Cardinal scoring some. With that being said, I expect the Heels to cover the majority of this over anyway. Carolina plays 10+ guys this year with not much of a fall off in talent. The player with the most NBA caliber talent doesn't even start. They have two players who can legitimately run point, and all of the bigs can run the floor. The Cardinal will likely be worn out by the latter part of second half translating to easy UNC baskets. I think the Heels could definitely cover this number as well. I may add them later.

    727 Eastern Michigan Under 155

    EMU returns the core of their team from last year and added two upperclassmen transfers. Their coach is a Boheim disciple who plays 2-3 zone exclusively. They also play a very slow tempo. I can see the zone and tempo frustrating the young dookies. They played at Indiana and at Cuse last year, so I don't see them being too shell shocked in Cameron. Also, the opening total was 147 with the oddsmakers knowing they were going to get hit with mostly over bets. I know it doesn't take much to move numbers early in college ball, but this move seems to be an overreaction.
