College Basketball Super Tuesday: UNC at NCST Prediction

College Basketball ACC Showdown

#15 North Carolina at #18 North Carolina State

PNC Arena – Raleigh, NC

Tipoff- 9pm

 

College basketball has fans in North Carolina going up… on a Tuesday! PNC arena in Raleigh, NC will be sold out and rocking, as the North Carolina State Wolfpack host in-state rival, North Carolina Tar Heels. The Wolfpack are rolling and are currently 13-1, with their only loss coming against Wisconsin back in November. NC State is 6th in the nation in scoring, averaging 89.2 points per game, led by Torin Dorn who is averaging 14.5 pts/gm. Last year, Dorn scored 20 and 21 points against the Tar Heels and will be looking to tickle the twine often tonight. The road dogs, UNC, come into the game 11-3 on the season. They beat a very good Gonzaga team, got beat by Kentucky, and have smoked their last 3 opponents. The Tar Heels, like the Wolfpack, light up the scoreboard. UNC, ranks 5th in the nation in scoring, averaging 89.9 pts/gm. Cam Johnson leads the team in scoring with 16.3 pts/gm.

Outside of Wisconsin, NCST’s non-conference schedule has been very weak and they will truly be tested tonight. If UNC shows up, doesn’t get into a big hole early, and can silence the crowd, we like the Tar Heels to win straight up. The line opened at UNC +2 and can currently be found anywhere from +1.5 to +1… we like it all the way to UNC pick‘em.
