NEWSLETTER College Basketball Prediction From Strike Point Sports
Take North Carolina over N.C. State (Noon, Saturday, Jan. 16)
The Tar Heels welcome local neighbors N.C. State, but this ACC rivalry game will be all Carolina Blue. The Wolfpack have started 0-2 in league play away from home, and the Dean Dome isn’t the type of place where you reverse your poor road form. Carolina is starting to hit a groove and really become a consistent and dangerous team night in and night out. N.C. State has a seven-man rotation, and that lack of depth is going to be a problem against this deep and skilled UNC team. North Carolina rolls past its counterpart this afternoon.
