Books were trending towards -5.5 throughout the day Thursday.  The line was as low as -4.5.

Predictions:

Michael Beller of Sports Illustrated: “Auburn has the three-point shooting to stay with North Carolina, but it isn’t just raw scoring that beats the Tar Heels. Teams either need to take them out of their extremely fast pace—as Michigan, Kentucky and Virginia did in regular season wins over the Heels—or be able to play with them at it, as Duke did in its ACC semifinal victory. Auburn isn’t equipped to do either. I’ve got North Carolina advancing to the Elite Eight in relatively comfortable fashion.”

Sagarin suggests the line on this game should be no higher than UNC -4.5.
