NC State Wolfpack Betting Prediction

First, we have the NC State vs Duke Betting prediction for the Wolfpack.

Syracuse, the seventh seed, was no match for NC State in the second round. It was their second win in a row, and it happened Wednesday night.

The Wolfpack’s overall record went up to 19-14, and their 9-11 record in ACC play put them in 10th place in the league.

In the first half against Syracuse, NC State was down by as many as five points before coming back to win 35–32 at halftime.

Early in the second half, the Wolfpack was down by two points. But they went on a huge 21-2 run that put them ahead 58-41 with 12:35 to go and they never looked back.

In addition to making seven of twenty three-point shots, NC State made 42.4% of its shots from the floor and had a 40-31 edge on the boards. He led the Wolfpack with 18 points and nine rebounds in the win.

With 76.3 points per game this year, the Wolfpack are 125th in the country in terms of attack. There are 34.9 boards per game for NC State, which ranks 189th in the country.

They also give out 12.9 assists per game. The Wolfpack’s defense is just okay. They allow 72.9 points per game, which ranks them 207th in the country.

Four Wolfpack players are scoring over 10 points per game this season. Casey Morsell is one of them. Jayden Taylor averages 12.7 points and four boards per game, DJ Burns Jr. averages 12.1 points, four boards per game, and 2.6 assists per game, and DJ Horne averages 16.8 points per game.

They also have Dennis Parker Jr., Michael O’Connell, Mohammed Diarra, Ben Middlebrooks, and Breon Pass, who are all very important to NC State.

This year, the Wolfpack have made 44.6% of their shots from the field. NC State makes 7.2 three-pointers every night, which is 34.7 percent of their shots from beyond the line.

The Wolfpack make 73.3% of their free throws this season, which is above average for a team their size.

Duke Blue Devils Betting Prediction

Now, we have the NC State vs Duke Betting prediction for the Blue Devils.

Duke could have at least shared the ACC regular season title, but #4 North Carolina beat them easily Saturday night in front of the Cameron Coogan Crazy.

After losing to the Tar Heels, the Blue Devils finished the regular season 24-7 overall and 15-5 in the ACC.

Duke never led against North Carolina. They were behind 17-4 with 15:22 left in the first half and had to play catch-up the rest of the way.

To start the second half, the Blue Devils were nine points behind. They got within one point with 16:58 left, but then they gave up a 9-1 run and were back behind by nine.

Duke lost because they never got closer than four points the rest of the way. The Blue Devils made 43.3% of their shots from the field, including 9 of 23 three-point shots.

However, they lost the fight for rebounds and let the Tar Heels shoot 50% for the game. Kyle Filipowski scored 23 points and grabbed seven rebounds to lead the Blue Devils in the loss.

With 80.2 points per game this season, the Blue Devils are 43rd in the country in scoring efficiency. Duke gets 36.5 boards per game, which ranks them 123rd in the country, and 15.4 assists per game, which ranks them 50th.

Giving up 67.2 points per game puts the Blue Devils 52nd in the country in terms of score defense.

With 16.7 points and eight rebounds per game this season, Kyle Filipowski is one of five Duke players in double figures.

Also good this season are Jared McCain (13.6 points, five rebounds), Mark Mitchell (12.1 points, 6.1 boards), Jeremy Roach (14.3 points, 3.2 assists), and Tyrese Proctor (10.6 points, 3.7 assists).

During this season, Caleb Foster, Jaylen Blakes, Sean Stewart, TJ Power, and Ryan Young have all been very important to teacher Jon Scheyer.

As a team, Duke is hitting 48.3% from the field this season, which ranks 24th in the country.

Even though they only make 38.1% of their three-point shots this season, the Blue Devils make 8.5 threes every night, which ranks them 12th in the country.

Duke is good at the free throw line. They made 72.5% of their shots this year, which ranked them 154th in the country.

Foster (foot) hasn’t played since February 24 and doesn’t know when he’ll be able to play again.

NC State vs Duke Betting Pick

Syracuse was no match for NC State, who played well and won easily. The Orange lost all of their energy during their run in the second half, which helped the Wolfpack win their second game in a row. NC State is having trouble because this is where tiredness starts to show.

They’ve played three games in a row, and this is the third one against a Duke team that hasn’t played since Saturday.

The Blue Devils shoot very well from outside, are mostly healthy, and have five players who average over 10 points per game who can get the job done on offense.

NC State has strong tools, but Duke’s defense and tired legs make it impossible for the Wolfpack to win.
