College Basketball Picks: Florida State Seminoles vs. North Carolina Tar Heels

1 of 4

    The North Carolina Tar Heels are 15-6 against the spread as favorites this season, which is important to consider when making your college basketball picks on Friday night, as they take on the Florida State Seminoles at the Greensboro Coliseum.

    Sports bettors will find that the Tar Heels are eight-point neutral-site favorites in the NCAA basketball odds (courtesy of SBR Forum), while the total sits at 141 in the market.

    Let's take a closer look at this Atlantic Coast Conference tournament matchup from a betting perspective, while offering up a prediction on the total along the way.

Florida State Seminoles

2 of 4

    The Florida State Seminoles have won three games in a row, including a 73-69 victory over the Clemson Tigers as two-point favorites on Thursday night.

    Sports bettors will find that the Seminoles are 5-0 against the spread in their last five games on a neutral floor, with the OVER cashing in each of those contests.  

North Carolina Tar Heels

    The North Carolina Tar Heels have won six of their last seven games, but they suffered a 69-53 blowout loss to the Duke Blue Devils as two-point home favorites last Saturday.

    Over the last two-plus seasons, the Tar Heels are 1-4-1 against the spread in conference tournament games. 

Prediction

4 of 4

    I'm going to recommend that readers play the total as one of their college basketball picks on Friday night, as the OVER is 5-2 in the last seven meetings in this series.
