MICHIGAN ST. SPARTANS vs UNC TAR HEELS (UNDA 154)
As I sipped on my Tequila & Poprocks concoction last night, I couldn't get past the fact that immediately after the UNC vicotry the Izzonator was probably preaching to his guards to slow this MFer down tonight. The Tar Heels are more unstoppable than Travis Henry's swimmers when the get in the open court so look for MSU to do everything they can to make this a half-court game. And since the Spartans were blown-out by UNC on December 2nd (L 98-63), they've gone 31 games without an opponent scoring more 73 points, and of those 31, only 13 sqauds have laced the nets for more than 62!
To make things fair, I expect the Tar Heels to roll tonight and was tempted to give the eight points and ride Coach Roy to a victory, but even in that case, I can't see how the finally score isn't something in the realm of 78-63...which means we still have 12-14 points to play with like Charlie Sheen plays with relaxation therapists when he's out of town. Throw-in the nerves from the National Title, and I expect plenty of misses early on to send us on our way to an ATS victory.
While the Devil's Advocate will tell you a blow-out early could lead to plenty of Spartan threes and trips to the charity stripe for UNC, with the game in Detroit City, I expect a nice fight from Suton, Lucas, Walton & Associates from the onset. Maybe you consider my unda play as a chicken-shit out in predicting this Big Dance battle, but I'm all about getting my Homeboys a victory, not to mention I don't want to pay the babysitter with a credit card this week, so I'm going with my gut on this one...Carolina scores between 72-82 and MSU between 60-70.
