Prediction

Expect the North Carolina Tar Heels to win comfortably and cover the -10.5 points spread against the Florida State Seminoles. Here's why:

North Carolina has already defeated Florida State twice this season, demonstrating their superiority over the Seminoles. With a strong roster led by R. Davis and A. Bacot, the Tar Heels have the talent and depth to outclass Florida State once again.

Furthermore, North Carolina enters the ACC Tournament with momentum, riding a six-game winning streak and showing no signs of slowing down. Their recent victories include impressive performances against tough opponents like Duke and Virginia.

On the other hand, Florida State has struggled with inconsistency throughout the season and lacks the firepower to match North Carolina's offensive output. While they may put up a fight, the Tar Heels' dominance in previous matchups suggests that they will secure a convincing victory.

Considering North Carolina's recent form, their past success against Florida State, and their overall strength as a team, they are well-positioned to win decisively and cover the -10.5 points spread in this quarterfinal clash of the ACC Tournament.
