We’re just a few weeks away from the opening kickoff of the 2023 Tar Heels football season, when the Mack Brown-coached club will look to build off last year’s nine-win campaign in Chapel Hill across North Carolina sports betting.
When the Tar Heels square off against regional rival South Carolina in a neutral site contest in Charlotte on Sept. 2, they’ll do so as a 2.5-point favorite on Caesars Sportsbook, looking to shake off last year’s four-game losing streak that tanked their 9-1 start to the year.
To get a sense of where Brown and company stand entering the season, BetCarolina.com compiled odds on the Tar Heels’ 2023 regular season record. And remember, BetCarolina.com is your home to all UNC odds ahead of and during the season.
Projecting North Carolina's Record
UNC Has Shot At Historic Season In 2023
It’s been eight years since the Tar Heels’ last double-digit win campaign, when UNC went 11-3 under then-head coach Larry Fedora in 2015.
In the interim, UNC has posted two eight-win seasons (in 2016 and 2020), in addition to last year’s nine-win campaign.
This fall, the Tar Heels are listed in a tie with Louisville as the No. 3 option among ACC favorites on operators like BetMGM Sportsbook and Caesars Sportsbook, with conference title odds of +300 on the former and +1200 on the latter. Look for a BetMGM North Carolina bonus code when apps launch early next year.
That’s why we list an eight-or-nine win campaign being the most likely for UNC in 2023, with hypothetical odds of +250 and +320 for either scenario, while a 10-2 (+450), 7-5 (+550) or 11-1 (+750) campaign features much longer odds this fall.
For Brown and company, the road to the 2023 ACC championship game begins in early September in Charlotte, with the possibility of building a historic campaign in the weeks thereafter.
