Free Sports Game Preview and Prediction: Florida State vs. North Carolina
Saturday, January 14, 2017 2:00 PM
Play: Point Spread: -7.5/-112 North Carolina
Florida State and North Carolina come in as a pair of top 12 teams looking for a big conference win to push them further up the rankings. Florida State is 16-1 as they started off with four in a row before a tough three point loss to Temple and haven't lost since going 12 straight heading into this game including four wins over ranked teams. Florida State is in quite the rough stretch playing six straight conference games against ranked teams, so far they have won the first three beating #12 Virginia, #21 Virginia Tech, and #7 Duke. Florida State is #9 in the country and atop the ACC with a 4-0 conference record. North Carolina is #11 with a 15-3 mark and 3-1 in ACC play. North Carolina opened the year with a 7 game winning streak before falling to Indiana, won three before a loss to Kentucky, won a pair before a loss to Georgia Tech and have won their last three since. North Carolina is so good because they can beat you inside, outside, in transition, in press and especially on the offensive glass with second chance points. North Carolina has four players scoring over 12 points a game in Jackson, Berry II, Meeks and Hicks which makes it hard to defend as too many options to cover. Florida State has three players scoring double figures and a fourth around 9.5 points, so the question is can they keep up the scoring with North Carolina? Florida State is scoring 86 points per game while allowing just under 69 points per game and North Carolina is 6th in the nation scoring 89 points per game and allowing under 70 per game. Look for North Carolina to ramp up their scoring and clamp down on defense as they pull away late winning 95-86. Play North Carolina
