St. Peters vs. North Carolina Odds, Lines, Picks & Predictions


North Carolina 72, St. Peters 66

money Line


It’s March. At -410, North Carolina is very expensive. On the other hand, I don’t think Peacock’s historical run will continue, so I would refrain from suggesting his +310 money line value.

against the spread

Bet St. Peters +8.5 (-115),

I’m not predicting that the Cinderella run will continue, but if there’s anything we’ve seen of peacocks over and over again, it’s that they’re going to compete.

With Purdue, St. Peters played against a 7-foot-4 big man and two Big Ten Precision First Team selections. Peacock imposed his wish. Against both Murray State and Kentucky, St. Peter’s defense was strong.

Kenpom ranked St Peter’s defense the 24th best in the nation. It would be able to subdue a major North Carolina attack, especially given that the Peacocks are a guard-heavy team.

He doesn’t have a player taller than 6-foot-7, averaging over 5.0 points per game. This should be a good sign for the Tar Heels to slow down, considering that Love took them here.

Both teams are 3–0 ATS in this tournament, and both have served as underdogs in five of their six matches.

Expect the underdog to cover the spread again.

over under

lean As far as over 136.5 (-108),

North Carolina ranks 36th in adjusted speed. Purdue, Kentucky and Murray State all rank under 150 in tempo, so the St. Peters hasn’t met a team ready to push the pace like the Tar Heels.

UNC is 5-3 O/U in their last eight matches; St Peters is 3-3 O/U in postseason play including their conference tournament.

While St Peters have a strong defence, tempo is going to play an important factor, and I expect the higher seeds to play to their style of play.
