Sunday's Tip Sheet
David Schwab

Sunday’s college basketball betting board offers three matchups featuring some of the top teams in the nation.

First up in an early ACC paring, the North Carolina Tar Heels are on the road against the Virginia Cavaliers. In the first of two games on Sunday night, the Gonzaga Bulldogs face the Washington Huskies. Closing out Sunday’s betting, the Seton Hall Pirates are on the road against the Iowa State Cyclones.

No. 7 North Carolina at No. 5 Virginia (ACCN, 4:00 p.m. ET)
Opening Odds: Virginia -4.5, Total 116

Betting Matchup

The Tar Heels are going to tumble more than a few spots in next week’s national rankings after Wednesday’s lopsided 74-49 loss to Ohio State as three-point home favorites. This was their second straight-up loss in three games as part of an overall record of 6-2. North Carolina has been a betting disaster with a 2-6 mark against the spread. Adding injury to insult, freshman forward Armando Bacot left Wednesday game with a significant ankle injury. Freshman guard Cole Anthony shot just 26.7% from the field scoring 15 points in that loss.

Virginia should also fall down the national ranks with an ugly 69-40 loss to Purdue on Wednesday as a 2 ½-point road underdog. This was the Cavaliers’ first SU loss of the year after winning their first seven games. They covered the closing spread in the first two games of the season before going 0-6 ATS in their last six contests. Virginia is averaging just 53.3 points per game with a defensive effort that is holding opponents to 43.9 points. This is the lowest points-allowed average in the nation to keep the total UNDER in six of eight games.

Betting Trends

-- The Tar Heels have gone 5-0 ATS in their last five ACC games with the total staying UNDER in four of those five games.

-- The Cavaliers are 7-2 ATS in their last nine conference games and the total has gone OVER in three of their last five games against an ACC team.

-- Virginia has gotten the best of this series over the past 10 meetings with a 7-3 record both SU and ATS. The Tar Heels have failed to cover in the last four games and the total has stayed UNDER in five of the last six matchups.

No. 9 Gonzaga at No. 22 Washington (ESPN2, 7:00 p.m. ET)
Opening Odds: Gonzaga -2.5, Total 144

Betting Matchup

Gonzaga’s lone SU loss of the season against nine victories came against Michigan in an 82-64 Wolverines’ romp in the Battle 4 Atlantis title game. The WCC’s Bulldogs closed as 4 ½-point favorites. They bounced back on Wednesday by covering a 30-point spread in a 101-62 win against Texas Southern. They are 5-4-1 ATS with the total going OVER in seven of the 10 games. Corey Kispert (17 points) and Joel Ayayi (16 points) led the way in the recent 100-point effort. Gonzaga is averaging 86.2 PPG which is ranked fifth in the country while allowing an average of 63.9 points a game.

The Pac-12’s Huskies are in the national rankings with a SU 7-1 start that includes a current five-game winning streak. They are an even 4-4 ATS after failing to cover in Wednesday’s 90-80 victory over Eastern Washington as 15 ½-point home favorites. The total went OVER 147 ½ points after staying UNDER in five of Washington’s first seven games. Quade Green (20 points) and Jaden McDaniels (17 points) had the hot hands in Wednesday’s win. Freshman Isaiah Stewart leads the team in scoring on the year with 16.5 PPG.

Betting Trends

-- The Bulldogs have failed to cover in five of their last seven road games with one contest ending as a PUSH. The total has stayed UNDER in four of those games.

-- The Huskies have gone an even 3-3 ATS this season at home after going 1-4 ATS in their last five home games last season. The total has stayed UNDER in nine of their last 12 games played at home.

-- Gonzaga has won nine of its last 10 games against Washington SU and it has covered the spread in eight of those 10 meetings. The total has gone OVER in five of the last seven meetings.

No. 16 Seton Hall at Iowa State (ESPN2, 9:00 p.m. ET)
Opening Odds: Iowa State -1, Total 154.5

Betting Matchup

Losses to Michigan State and Oregon as underdogs are the Big East’s Pirates’ two SU losses against six wins. They are also 6-2 ATS after beating Iowa State at 84-76 on Nov. 29 in the 5th-place matchup in the Battle 4 Atlantis. The total has gone OVER or ended as a PUSH in five of eight games. Senior guard Myles Powell is Seton Hall’s top scorer with 23.4 PPG. He posted 19 of his 24 points against Iowa State in the second half on that game. Overall, the Pirates have averaged 82 PPG this season.

The Big 12’s Cyclones followed up the loss to Seton Hall with Wednesday’s 79-61 rout of UMKC but they could not cover as 18-point home favorites. They have failed to cover in three of their last four games. Overall, Iowa State is 5-3 SU and 4-4 ATS. The total has gone OVER in its last four games and in six of the eight games overall. Three starters accounted for 54 of the team’s 76 points in the first game against Seton Hall. The Cyclones shot a respectable 45.3 percent from the field but they were just 9-for-27 from three-point range.

Betting Trends

-- The Pirates have failed covered ATS in four of their last seven games on the road with the total staying UNDER in six of their last eight road games.

-- The Cyclones are 3-5 ATS in their last eight home games with the total going OVER in five of their last seven games played at home.
