Tar Heels are 7-25 ATS in their last 32 games after accumulating more than 280 yards passing in their previous game.

Tar Heels are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS win.

Tigers are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 neutral site games.

Over is 4-1 in Tigers last 5 games on grass.

Under is 4-1 in Tigers last 5 games as a favorite.

My Prediction: Statistically, these two teams are pretty even across the board. The next step is too look at their level of competition and how they finished down the stretch. Missouri is in a much better position in that respect. The Big 12 is better than the ACC. North Carolina lost 4 of their last 6 while Mizzou won 4 of their last 5. I’ll go with the public on this one.

Missouri -5
