Burns' *10 AFTERNOON BEST BET! (5-1/83% L2 Days!): Don't look now but its almost "tourney time" & Ben Burns is HEATING UP! Burns followed up a PERFECT 3-0 Thursday SWEEP with a FANTASTIC 2-1 Friday card. His first play from Saturday is an ABSOLUTE BEHEMOTH. If you liked last Saturday's BIG BRACKETBUSTER WINNER, you're going to LOVE this one. Note the EARLY Tipoff. BETTER MOVE FAST!
Game: North Carolina at Virginia Feb 25 2012 4:00PM
Grade: Winner (100)
Reason: I'm playing on VIRGINIA. The Tar Heels beat up on the Cavaliers at North Carolina. I expect a vastly different result this afternoon. The Cavs are a different team here. They're 21-6 overall but 13-1 here at home. That's better than North Carolina's 6-2 mark on the road. Dominant defense has been the key to Virginia's success at home. The Cavs rank second in the entire country allowing a mere 48.2 points per game here. Visiting teams are shooting only 36.7 percent here. In their last game here, the Cavs crushed Maryland by a score of 71-44. Note that UNC is only 8-13 ATS the past few seasons, when facing a team which allows 64 or fewer points per game, in the second half of the season. Off the blowout win against the Terps, the Cavs proceeded to avenge their lone home loss, going on the road and beating V-Tech. Note that they're also 2-0 ATS the last two times that they attempted to avenge a road loss. Playing with revenge and with a chance to earn a win against the mighty Tar Heels, I expect Virginia to be the "hungrier" team. It likely won't be easy but I feel this team has what it takes to score the upset and I look for them to do just that. *10 (Best Bet)
