Only a few weeks ago, Florida State was 6-2 in conference play and towards the top of the rankings, but now they are 6-7 in the ACC and ninth place. They only scored in the 70s once throughout the losing run, and have averaged only 60 ppg in the last 3 matches.

 

FSU permits 69.2 points per game (194th) on defense, with opponents shooting 43.7 percent (230th) and 37.3 percent from the three-point range (343rd). In terms of defensive effectiveness, the Seminoles are ranked 63rd.

 

Their perimeter defense is a major issue, as they allowed 23.9 three-point attempts per game (289th) and 8.9 made three-point attempts per game (327th). They force a lot of turnovers, with 15.7 induced turnovers per game (28th) and 9.3 steals per game (13th).

  • The University of Florida State Seminoles is 4-9 SU in their last 13 matches against North Carolina.
  • Florida State is 0-5 ATS in their last 5 matches in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

North Carolina, ranked 45th in Kenpom, is starting to come together, having won five of their previous six games (3-2-1 ATS). The North Carolina Tar Heels’ momentum was shattered with an ugly loss to Duke on February 5th.

 

UNC now rebounded with a victory over Clemson. They are generating 84 points per game in their previous four games, but they are also surrendering 81.8 points per game.

 

All season, the Tar Heels’ attack is fairly good, ranking 25th in offensive efficiency. They score 78.1 points per game (33rd), shooting 45.3 percent (107th), and make 38.4 percent of their three-point attempts (12th). UNC boasts four players that are shooting at least 40% from three.

 

North Carolina’s defense is a major concern all season. They have the 96th best defensive efficiency in the league, allowing 72.8 points per game (288th). In comparison to the Tar Heel defense, opponents shoot 43.5 percent from the field (217th) and 34.6 percent from three (240th).

 

With 9.7 forced turnovers per game, they are a unique team that forces turnovers (348th). Furthermore, UNC allows 48.9% on two-pointers (148th). They also permitted 62.7 shot attempts per game, which ranks 335th in the country, making it difficult for opponents to score successfully against North Carolina’s defense.

Florida State Seminoles vs North Carolina Tar Heels. The NCAAB pick for this game is the North Carolina Tar Heels. To begin with, North Carolina is 12-1 at home this year, while Florida State is 3-5 on the road (2-6 ATS).

 

In this game, the Tar Heels’ three-point offense should have a field day. The perimeter defense is one of the Seminoles’ biggest flaws. They have the 343rd-best three-point % in the league, allowing over nine made threes per game.

 

North Carolina is one of the most effective three-point shooting teams in the country, averaging over eight three-pointers per game. North Carolina’s offense will have a great day as their three-point shooters fire up one of college basketball’s weakest perimeter defenses. The North Carolina Tar Heels will win and cover the ATS to a predicted score of 79-70.
