NC State Wolfpack
NC State has played ok this year, but they have not been consistent enough. You never truly know what to expect from them a game to game.
The Wolfpack picked up a win over the Louisville Cardinals on Wednesday by a score of 79-63. I think that victory surprised a lot of people, as the Cardinals are widely considered the better of the two teams.
They have faced some solid teams, but I still feel this matchup with Duke will be their biggest test of the year. They are a facing a great team and it is never easy winning on their home court.
Terquavion Smith led his team in scoring in their last game with 24 points and 5 boards. Also, Jericole Hellems added in 19 points and 6 rebounds.
Duke Blue Devils
As is the case in most years, Duke is playing very well this season. So far, they have definitely shown they are one of the better teams in college basketball.
As of now, the Blue Devils have a record of 13-2. The loss to the Miami Hurricanes definitely surprised a lot of people, but I do not see this team as the type to dwell on past events. Their main focus is on beating the Wolfpack and that should be it.
This program picked up a win over the Wake Forest Demon Deacons on Wednesday by a score of 76-64. That was a nice win for them over a solid team on the road.
The freshman sensation, Paolo Banchero, had 24 points and 5 rebounds in the win over Wake. AJ Griffin also had 22 points in the effort. In most games, the offense looks free-flowing for this group and lots of different guys step up.

Free NC State Wolfpack vs. Duke Blue Devils NCAAB Summary:
After picking up a nice win over Louisville in their last outing, the Wolfpack will be looking to pull off another upset when they head to Cameron Indoor, but the challenge will be much harder on Saturday.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Duke ATS
I get that NC State is a solid team, but Duke really should be able to take care of their business in this ball game. After they let Miami come in their building and beat them last Saturday, it would be a bad look for it to happen once again.
In this spot, I just feel the Blue Devils will be too much for the Wolfpack to handle. As the game gets going, I have a hard time seeing NC State stopping that potent offense for Duke.
I get that 14 is a high number to lay here, but I like it. I expect Duke to come out sharp and ready to go and I just feel they will show their dominance over a team they are better than.
I like Duke as the favorite at home here.
