March Madness gambling prospects have continued to worsen for the defending national champions as they continued a slump that could kill off their March Madness betting prospects. North Carolina had a March Madness gambling record of 13-9 straight up as they were wallowing in the bottom of the Atlantic Coast Conference March Madness betting race with North Carolina State and Miami of Florida.
The Tar Heels have been one of the worst March Madness gambling values in the country with a mark of 7-13 with the betting lines gambling board. The Tar Heels have simply not been the same March Madness gambling commodity since their stunning loss to Charleston on January 4 when they lost in overtime 79-82 as 13.5-point road chalks.
From January 13 through February 4 the Tar Heels continued their March Madness gambling tail spin with a mark of 1-5 both straight up and against the spread.
The entire fiasco has shocked everyone in March Madness gambling as it was expected that the Tar Heels would be able to waltz right into the Big dance with a legitimate shot at the Final Four again this year.
Defense has long been a problem with North Carolina, even in their best years under coach Roy Williams, and that has again been the case in 2010. The Tar Heels ranked a humiliating 286th in the nation for team defense.
They have also shown an incredible ability to self destruct from the free throw line as they had a March Madness gambling mark of 235th in the country for free throw percentage. Williams has not tried to sugar coat the Tar Heels March Madness gambling woes.
“We’ve got a lot of problems, and staying in front of the basketball has been one from Day One with this team,” said Williams. “And I really thought that we could be a good defensive team, and we haven’t shown that.”
Williams wondered how bad it could get. “How can you go any lower,” he said. “Be honest. How can it be any worse than it is right now?”
