North Carolina vs. Ohio Basketball Free Pick

North Carolina No 1 (31-5) vs. Ohio No. 13 (29-7)

UNC’s Zeller

The NCAA tournament is down to just 16 teams two of those teams make for an intriguing matchup when North Carolina meets Ohio. The storyline for this matchup will be whether or not Kendall Marshall North Carolina’s point guard will be able to play. Marshall suffered a fractured wrist on Sunday in their game against Creighton.

On Monday, the guard underwent surgery to have a screw inserted into his wrist. The fractured wrist is not on his shooting hand, but the pain might just be too much for the guard to go. The most likely outcome is he will play final four weekend if the team makes it that far.

The Tar Heels are 31-5 on the season and 19-15-1 ATS. The Ohio Bobcats are 29-7 overall and 16-13 ATS. The Heels reached the Sweet 16 by defeating Creighton 87-73 to cover a 9-point favorite spread. The Bobcats upset South Florida 62-56 to punch their Sweet 16 ticket. They easily covered an underdog spread of 2 points in the win.

Tyler Zeller will step of the Tar Heels if Marshall cannot go. The big man leads the team in scoring and is second in rebounding. He was named the player of the year in the ACC. He can easily take control of the game on both ends of the court. The backcourt for North Carolina will be at a disadvantage if Marshall cannot go. They will have to hand it over to freshmen Stilman White and senior Justin Watts.

The Bobcats forwards of Jon Smith and Ivo Baltic will be tested in the game and will need help from Reggie Keely off the bench. Ohio is undersized against North Carolina’s Zeller and ACC defensive player of the year John Henson.

The current line has the Tar Heels as 10 ‘-point favorites with the total at 142.5. The Tar Heels should win this game regardless if Marshall can play.

Pick: North Carolina (-10.5) Total: OVER
