All eyes are going to be on the NFL on Sunday, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t a great opportunity to take advantage of this great college hoops betting battle. The Tigers are going to try their best to slow down the Wolfpack, and they are going to use the same model that the Maryland Terrapins used to keep them down to just 50 points during the week. However, it just isn’t likely that NC State is only going to hit 19-of-61 shots against Clemson at home as it did against Maryland on the road on Wednesday night. The Wolfpack are one of the best shooting teams in America at 51.5 percent from the floor, and there are just far too many weapons to be counted upon for the Tigers to stop them all. About the only chance that they have is to win the battle on the glass, and with F CJ Leslie and F Richard Howell dominating in the paint on both sides of the court, that just doesn’t seem likely. This will be NC State’s 10th straight win at home, and it will improve to 6-2 ATS in those 10 games.
