Kansas vs. North Carolina Predictions, NBA Free Pick Top Sports Handicapper

Matt Rivers has an against the spread winning pick for Sunday is on the Miami Heat (+1.5) to Oklahoma City.

Reasoning: Oklahoma City is explosive as heck as both Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook are great but all in all the Thunder are just not as good as Lebron, Wade, Bosh and the visitors from South Beach.

Miami is the best team in the NBA and it’s not even close. Yes Chicago has had a ridiculously great season and City is a scary and dangerous team to face but all in all neither the Bulls nor these Thunder are the Heat, even at home.

Oklahoma City just needed double overtime in order to beat the Ricky Rubio-less Timberwolves. They did win the game in the end as their superstars went ballistic putting up bushels and bushels of points but things have not exactly been all that of late for the win one, lose one Thunder. Today’s home squad has been inconsistent both on the court and against the number and unless they can play one of their best games of the season are not going to beat a Miami team which is the best, period, end of story.

Top expert pick on this game: Miami Heat

Vic Duke has Kansas (-1’) for 2.5 Units **’

Kansas/North Carolina 5:05: The driving force of the Tar Heels for most of the season was Kendall Marshall. He is the catalyst that fuels the Tar Heels as a team. Without his presence on the floor, North Carolina is at a disadvantage to a very good Kansas team and should experience trouble here. Don't do Self analysis before betting

Marshall is a great ball handler and passer and sets up teammates with great looks at the basket; for example, Harrison Barnes is one of the big beneficiaries of Marshall’s floor presence as he was given multiple scoring opportunities off passes all over the floor. And when Barnes isn’t getting fed and forced to make plays off the dribble, he isn’t nearly as effective. Ohio took advantage of Marshall’s absence and caused 24 turnovers.

Bill Self is a great coach and will surely take advantage of Marshall’s void. Even in the unlikely case that Marshall plays, he’ll have a hard time catching the ball in which will fuel the probability of more turnovers against NC. We’ll look for Withey and Robinson to keep Zeller from having another monster game. And Taylor should step up his game here. Kansas is 10-4-1 ATS as a favorite in this spread range. Kansas the call.
