We've made a lot of money on Indiana this season, but I don't like its constant jump shots against a North Carolina team that owns the glass and the paint overall. The Hoosiers are going to get one shot and that's it. This could get ugly for the Hoosiers if shots aren't falling. I like North Carolina.
