Bet on NCAA Football – Tar Heels, Tigers Meet In Punishing Affair

LSU vs. North Carolina Betting OddsThose looking to bet on NCAA football this weekend shouldn’t expect a shootout on Saturday night, when North Carolina and LSU clash in a battle of hard-hitting defenses.  The Tar Heels are still waiting to hear about a couple of their players, but they should still have enough to come away with the win in this top-25 matchup.

LSU North Carolina Betting – Saturday, September 4, 8:00 PM ET

The No.21 Tigers both overachieved and underachieved in 2009, finishing 9-4 with a loss to Penn State in the Capitol One Bowl with a team that wasn’t all that talented.  But they probably threw away a couple of wins due to poor clock management, leaving fans wondering what might have been.  The Tigers were 112th in the nation offensively, and a lot of that was the fault of quarterback Jordan Jefferson.  But you can only blame the pivot so much when he spent most of the time running for his life as LSU was 105th in the country in sacks allowed.  Running back Charles Scott also needs to be replaced.  The defense was 26th in the country, but with four starters coming back, that could take a dip, especially in the tough SEC.

Those betting on NFL lines will want to keep an eye on a North Carolina defense that returns nine starters, and at least three of those starters, end Robert Quinn, tackle Marvin Austin and linebacker Quan Sturdivant, will end up in the league.  The No. 18 Tar Heels were 8-5, ending the season with two straight losses, including a 19-17 loss to Pitt in the Meineke Car Care Bowl.  Austin may not be available for this game, along with receiver Greg Little, as the pair were accused of dealing with agents, and we won’t know their availability until just before the game.  However, the Tar Heels have a lot of depth on either side of the ball.  The big question is an anemic offense, led by quarterback T.J. Yates, who makes far too many mistakes.

There are no odds for this game as of yet as sportsbooks are waiting to hear about the status of Little and Austin, but we’re still picking North Carolina.  Don’t expect a lot of scores in this one: neither team is known as an offensive juggernaut, and both defenses are good.  But the Tar Heels have a lot of experience on either side of the ball, and their offense should be able to move on LSU, at least early in the game.  As long as Yates doesn’t cause any turnovers, the Tar Heels should have little problem with LSU.  Take the Tar Heels at any of your favorite sports wagering sites.
