The first day of action in the ACC Tournament is not exactly prime action but it could have some handicapping opportunities to exploit.
Wake Forest has had another bad season and is not expected to go any further than Tuesday afternoon but the Wolfpack may live for another day.
The best player on either side is NC State PG Cat Barber. He might be able to spur the Wolfpack to loftier results.
The Demon Deacons finished just out of the basement in the ACC this season. Their lone win in the last 10 was over last place Boston College.
This once proud program of Chris Paul and Tim Duncan has lost its way. I thought that this year they might break through to respectability but it just never came together.
Statistically they have one of the most productive players in the league in Devin Thomas. He averages 15 and 10 and is a legit inside player.
Senior guard Codi Miller-McIntyre completely fell off as a senior. After showing improvement over his first three seasons his performance was really unexpected and a main reason the Deacons struggled so much.
NC State was one of the few teams that Wake beat this season. Splitting the season series winning at home.
The Wolfpack may have one of the league’s best players but they were not very good in a very competitive ACC this season. The one bright side is that four of their five wins came in the last 10 games.
Cat Barber is one of the most exciting players in the nation with the ball in his hands. He led the league in scoring with 23ppg. Pretty good considering he is not a great shooter.
One of things that helps is that he almost never leaves the floor. He is averaging close to 39 minutes per game this year and that is not going to change if they want to win games.
Joining Barber in the backcourt is freshman Maverick Rowan. He is overlooked in terms of ACC frosh but he has averaged 12ppg this season and give NC State some size on the perimeter.
The Wolfpack have some bulk on the inside to try and limit Thomas and if that is a matchup they win this game should be an easy win.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Over is 10-2 in NCST last 12 overall.
- Over is 10-2 in NCST last 12 vs. Atlantic Coast.
- WAKE are 8-21 ATS in the last 29 meetings.
Free Wake Forest Demon Deacons vs. NC State Wolfpack CBB Prediction:
These teams split during the regular season but with Barber never leaving the floor you can see why NC State is the favourite.
They can certainly be frustrating but you just can’t really get behind Wake Forest in my opinion.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: NC State -4.5
The Wolfpack scored 99 in their win over Wake. They won’t get that high this time but will win going away.
