unc beat kentucky earlier this year and thus far looked great in the ncaa tourney after 3 games. also seeded higher than kentucky you would think unc would be favored. im pulling the trigger on unc, because calipari will somehow blow it but the line seems pretty fishy.

Looks too good to be true to take UNC +1.5. My money will be on Kentucky.

UNC shoulda been the favorite since they got the higher seed. So im backing them since the dogs been hitting.

Daburgh:

Great observation.  It looks just like a trap game.  I believe it is.  Kentucky will roll.  Are you kidding. They beat Ohio State. They do deserve to be the favorite. I see them winning the game and have already bet it at Kentucky -1. KU, great shooters and smarter players IMO. They find a way.

I also look at the coaching matchup. Although I can't stand either, Calipari is an excellent coach. Roy Williams is the most overrated coach, ever.  If the Butler coach was at NC, he'd win every year with that talent that NC always gets. 

Go Cats -1. Love em and VCU +11.5.

I think it might just be a trap but for Kentucky backers. They just beat the overall #1 and Vegas makes a #4 Kentucky the favorites over #2 UNC thinking because of the Ohio St. win dummies will jump all over Kentucky

UNC beat this them 8th game of the season. Now both teams have improved since then but I think UNC has improved much more as a team than Kentucky has. Also when UNC beat them they did that with the worst point in UNC history Larry Drew as the starting point. Kendall Marshall played 10 min that game. Since he became the starter UNC is 18-2 with those 2 losses coming to Duke.

Give me the #1 in rebounding Tar Heels with those trees down low

This reminds me a lot of BYU/Gonzaga. Gonzaga was much lower seed yet favored by 1.5. BYU lit them up pretty badly in that game. UNC has better playmakers, more experience, and better coach IMO. My money is on UNC.

  WELL SAID  1.5 HAS BEEN A GOOD NUMBER FOR ME  ASU/WASH STATE     CAL/UCLA    GONZAGA/BYU  AND NOW UNC  ALL HOME TEAMS PREVAILED  HOPE THE MAGIC NUMBER  KEEPS GIVING

Or maybe the line is set right with all the overeaction to Kentucky beating a vastly overrated OSU team.  If they get all the action on Kentucky and UNC wins. They have done there job. The oddsmakers.

Unc should not be the favorite due to higher seed...the mistake lines makers kept making on butler...

people setting the lines dont factor seed

gut says kentucky

It's not rocket science to beat Kentucky. They only go 6 deep. Foul touble. OSU did this to perfection 1st half and then 2nd half totally stopped and had Buffford jack brick after brick.

This game is littered with lottery picks...will be a fun game to watch. But after watching UK win in a half court style game. They have proven to me they are good enough to win it all. Im not sure if UNC can play in a slowed down game where every posession counts. Im sitting this one out until halftime

NC pounds the ball inside and Kentucky bigs get in early foul trouble. Hopefully they call a tight game!
