NCAA CFB: DraftKing predicts UNC Tar Heels at 6-6, under 7.5

The North Carolina Tar Heels stunned fans and bookmarkers in 2020 by finishing the regular season with an 8-3 record. As college football season approaches, bookmakers, including DraftKings, have begun to project their betting projections on the team.

The Tar Heels are expected to have a fruitful season ahead. The previous two seasons’ buzz appears to be placing a premium on the win total. DraftKings predicts that the team will be at 6-6 this season, while other sportsbooks are giving North Carolina win totals around 6.5, which bettors could benefit even at -135 on under 7.5.

They started with a lot of anticipation in 2021, owing mostly to quarterback Sam Howell’s performances. He was projected to lead Carolina to another successful ACC season in 2021, with the team starting the season rated No. 10 nationally.

As Howell heads to the NFL, where he was selected in the fifth round by the Commanders, the team loses another 1,000-yard rusher in Ty Chandler. Although the Tar Heels may be pushed and trained strongly by Brown, the team consists of young, raw talents who have yet to produce anything resembling the sort of reloading required to go 8-4 and surpass the win total mark.

Last season, they were a frequently penalized squad that fared poorly in the red zone despite having an NFL-caliber quarterback. The Tar Heels also struggled on the road, going 0-6 away from home, which is said to be affected by their lack of experience.

Despite this, the Tar Heels have several upcoming non-conference games which they are projected to win before finally facing Duke Blue Devils and Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. On the other hand, they may also lose to tougher rivals such as Notre Dame, Miami, Pittsburgh, Wake Forest, and NC State. The good news is that the said losses could potentially win the bettors’ under bets.
