North Carolina regional bookies are worried heading into Friday night's game between UNC and Auburn.  They have reason to be.  The Tar Heels are probably the biggest exposure for this week's Sweet 16 round.

As a -5.5 favorite, there isn't a whole lot of wiggle room for North Carolina to win but not cover, an ideal situation as the Tar Heels advance to the Elite 8 and keep the North Carolina gamblers coming back for more.

Sagarin thinks it can happen.  They indicate a line of UNC -4.5.  We have seen the books drop the line to -4.5 early on but not below that number. 

Books are definitely moving the line in accordance with the action coming in (67% as of Friday morning).  We have not seen anyone move to the -6.
