Chapel Hill Regional Odds

North Carolina Tar Heels
+100
Georgia Bulldogs
+150
VCU Rams
+550
Hofstra Pride
+3000

There may not be two more contrasting season endings than North Carolina and Georgia.

The Tar Heels won the ACC Championship, completing a streak of 12 victories in 13 games. Meanwhile, Georgia stumbled, with four consecutive series losses against LSU, Vanderbilt, Tennessee and lowly Missouri.

The Bulldogs lost in the first round of the SEC Tournament, which plays by single elimination rules.

From a recency standpoint, North Carolina should be a heavy favorite at home, where the Heels posted a 29-6 record this season.

The biggest question is when Georgia will pitch Jonathan Cannon, as Nolan Crisp or Jaden Woods would be lined as a +125 underdog to VCU. Once Cannon has been used, the Bulldogs’ pitching staff takes a steep drop in staff ERA and WHIP.

North Carolina finished top-40 in home runs per nine with a park factors positive toward runs scored at home.

No other teams has the sticks or pitching that reside on the Tar Heels’ roster.

Georgia has been heading in the wrong direction for a month, while VCU has posted near-worst ranks in hitting and defense out of all Regional teams.

North Carolina is a projected -330 favorite over any Georgia pitcher not named Cannon. Take the Heels to advance to the Supers with a number that has betting value to -130.

Pick: North Carolina to Win Chapel Hill Regional (+100)
