North Carolina is 5-2 against the spread against the A-10, 1-3-1 against the spread in their last five non-conference games, and 2-6 against the spread in their last eight home gams against a team with a winning road record. Davidson is 21-5 against the spread in their last 26 road games, 2-5 against the spread against the ACC, and 0-5 against the spread against a team with a winning record.
UNC is a better team with Paige in the lineup but this is just a ton of points as Davidson hasn’t beaten much but I have to take the points here.
