North Carolina vs Indiana Prediction & Pick

The Tar Heels are in of a bounce-back win to end the month of November after losing back-to-back games in dramatic fashion. North Carolina has the offensive talent to keep up with any team in the nation, yet its defense has looked horrible. It is giving up 70.2 points per game (T-No. 176 in NCAA).

That does not bode well for the Tar Heels' chances of grinding out an upset win against the Hoosiers. Indiana ranks fourth in scoring (88.8 points per game) and second in shooting percentage (55.9%). Its 19.2 assists per game mark (No. 7 in NCAA) shows just how well the team is building early chemistry.

Final Score Prediction: North Carolina: 73 | Indiana: 78

North Carolina vs Indiana Best Bet

Indiana has been one of the best offensive teams in college basketball, so they should have no trouble scoring on North Carolina's subpar defense. That will force a Tar Heels offense that averages a reliable 82.6 points per game (No. 22 in NCAA) to play fast in order to catch up on the scoreboard.

Don't expect a lot of possessions to go late in the shot clock as the total has hit the over in five of Indiana's last seven games. It has also hit the over in a combined 24 of the last 33 games played on a Wednesday for the Tar Heels and Hoosiers. Trust the trends and back a high-scoring ranked affair.
