Saturday's best ATS bets
Picking winners for Saturday's big games, including Tar Heels-Orange
This game is a classic example of where power ratings fail. Jeff Sagarin's computer rankings have North Carolina as the No. 54 team in the country. Ken Pomeroy's ratings have them at No. 34. The Tar Heels are unranked in both the AP Top 25 and the USA Today Coaches Poll. This is a team that beat Kentucky, Michigan State and Louisville -- teams that are a combined 36-3 in their other games. There's no question that North Carolina can step up in class and beat the very best, even in hostile environments. Roy Williams most assuredly has Final Four-caliber talent on his roster.
