Week 6 of the 2022 NCAA college football season includes an ACC showdown between the North Carolina Tar Heels and Miami Hurricanes. After losing to Notre Dame in a shootout, North Carolina rebounded last week with a lopsided 41-10 victory against Virginia Tech.

Meanwhile, Miami's 2-0 start to the year is now a distant memory after losing back-to-back matchups. The Hurricanes' most recent defeat came in the form of a 45-31 loss to Middle Tennessee.

Miami enters this contest as a slight home favorite on the spread. This 4 p.m. ET clash also features a total of 66.5, which is high compared to the rest of this week's projected totals.

North Carolina vs Miami Prediction & Pick

Despite being the favorite, Miami hasn't had much success against North Carolina lately. The Hurricanes have lost five of their last seven meetings with the Tar Heels, including each of the last three tilts.

Even though UNC's defense has had some serious struggles, the offense has more than made up for them, averaging 42.8 points per game thus far — seventh-best in the nation. While Miami's defense has been solid at times, I don't think the offense is good enough to keep up with the Tar Heels if things start clicking right away.

While I'm expecting a close game here, I do think that North Carolina will emerge as the underdog victor against a Miami team that has a lot to figure out.

Final Score Prediction: North Carolina: 35 | Miami: 30

As mentioned above, I have faith that North Carolina can pick up the road win here. The fact that the Tar Heels are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games against the Hurricanes increases that confidence more, leading to my listing UNC to cover the 3.5-point spread as the best bet.

Bet: North Carolina +3.5 (-110)
