The Game****s are favored by 12.5 points! I'm not a betting man, but I think that's a bit of a stretch. I agree that South Carolina should be favored on paper (they're the higher-ranked team playing at home), but I don't see them out-scoring UNC's offense by that much given the way the Tar Heels can rack up points. UNC's offense will likely score enough to win, but the question will be if North Carolina's defense can hold up its end of the bargain.
