Baylor will be a -6 favorite versus North Carolina in Round 2 of the NCAA Tournament.

While UNC stunned Duke on the road in Coach K's final home game, they ulimately lost to Virginia Tech in the ACC Tournament Semifinal.

The Heels averaged 37 percent from 3 entering the game, but made just 3 of their first 20 attempts and finished shooting 11.5 percent.

UNC was up 53-21 in the first half against Marquette with Caleb Love scoring 21 points.

As a favorite, UNC went 21-4 this season Straight Up. As an underdog since 2016, the Tar Heels are just 11-28 (28.2%) Straight Up.

Jonathan Tchamwa Tchatchoua's suffered a left knee injury last month and is out for the season.  This leads the Bears with little depth up front and it is a worrisome development heading into March Madness.

But Baylor annihilated Norfolk State in Round 1 of the tournament Thursday 84-49.

Matthew Mayer led the way for the Bears with 22 points in Thursday's first-round game at Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas. The top seed in the East region scored the first five points and never trailed in the wire-to-wire win.

As a favorite, Baylor is 118-22 Straight Up for a win percentage of 84.3% since 2016.  As an away favorite they have only lost five games in the last six seasons.

Baylor should have no problem winning here on the moneyline.
