NC State Wolfpack
NC State has been decent this year, but they have not been anything all that special. So far, they just have not been consistent enough.
The Wolfpack got beat by the Clemson Tigers on Saturday by a score of 70-65. They will once again get a chance to play an ACC foe when they square off with the Cardinals on the road.
This is a team that has played some solid competition, but they have also dropped some games to teams they should have beaten. They will be in for a challenge when they go against a solid team in Louisville on Wednesday.
Offensively, I thought these guys could have played much better in their last game. They will have to be better on that side of the ball if they are going to get a win in their next game.
Louisville has gotten off to a good start this season. I have liked a lot of the things that I have seen out them so far and I would expect them to only improve their game as the year goes on.
The Cardinals currently have a record of 10-5. Even though the record is good, they have a few unacceptable losses on their schedule, such as the ones to Furman and Western Kentucky.
This crew lost to the Florida State Seminoles on Saturday by a score of 79-70. They will look to get back on track when they host the Wolfpack.
This team played a lot better in the second half against Florida State, but they were not able to overcome the 50-40 first half deficit. It is hard to dig yourself out that kind of a hole, even if it is not the biggest margin in the world.
CBB Betting Trends:
- NC State is 4-13 ATS in their last 17 games.

- Louisville is 9-4 SU in their last 13 games.
- The total has gone over in 4 of Louisville’s last 6 games.
- Louisville is 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 games played in January.
Free NC State Wolfpack vs. Louisville Cardinals NCAAB Summary:
Both of these teams will be looking to put tough losses behind them and get back to their winning ways on Wednesday. When all is said and done, I do feel it can be a competitive game.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: NC State ATS
If you are Louisville, these are games you need to win at home. I get that the NC State is a solid group, but it would be a bad look if they came into your building and beat you.
Even though this will be a tall task for them, the Wolfpack have shown this year that they can hang with their competition. At this point in the season, Louisville is not so dominant to the point where I think it is an automatic cover for them.
I would expect the Cardinals to win this ball game, but I do not love them as a 7 point fave. I expect the offense for NC State to keep them in this thing and make the game closer than anticipated.
Give me the Wolfpack at +7 here.
