The North Carolina Tar Heels (7) are in the driver's seat in the ACC and can do themselves a huge favor by beating the Virginia Cavaliers (3) on the road.

Virginia currently sits two games out of first, while Louisville and Miami (each one game back) play each other earlier in the day. North Carolina has been up-and-down of late, winning four of seven, and hope to close out their season atop the ACC.

Tipoff: 6:30 p.m. ET in Charlottesville, Va.

Spread: Virginia -4

Saturday's ACC clash promises to be a classic showdown of offense against defense, as the Tar Heels are averaging about 84 points per game (ninth in the nation), and the Cavaliers are allowing about 60 points per game (third in the nation).

North Carolina wraps up its season next weekend in Durham, but will return home to play Syracuse before that. Its path to staving off Miami, Louisville, and Virginia for the ACC regular season title is simple: win out. Doing so would also help them earn a one-seed for the NCAA Tournament, which is also not out of reach for Virginia.
