Two ACC teams are set to battle Sunday as the Syracuse Orange play host to the North Carolina State Wolfpack.
NC State snapped a four game losing streak in their last game after defeating Wake Forest. For Syracuse, they were blown out in their last game against Virginia, falling by 23 points. Both teams are currently on the bubble for the NCAA Tournament.
Syracuse looks to get back on track after a big loss against Virginia. The Cavaliers controlled the game from the very beginning, leading by 9 at halftime and 23 by game’s end. Quincy Guerrier had 15 points to pace the Orange while Alan Griffin added 13.
Syracuse is normally a defensive minded team, but this season the offense has been the impressive side of the ball for the Orange. The Orange have shot the ball better this season, particularly from the free throw line.
The Orange are scoring 77.9 points per game while allowing right around 71 a contest. The Orange do a good job of getting to the basket, drawing fouls, and blocking shots on the defensive end.
Guerrier and Griffin have both stepped up in big ways this season. Guerrier leads the team with just under 17 PPG while Griffin, a Illinois transfer, pitches in 15.5 points and 7.5 rebounds a night.
NC State Wolfpack
NC State played a great defensive game their last time out against Wake Forest. The Wolfpack held the Demon Deacons to under 30 percent shooting in a victory. Devon Daniels and Jericole Hellems combined for 37 points.
NC State’s offense has been impressive this season. The Wolfpack average right around 77 PPG and shoot just under 38 percent from the field. They also rack up a lot of steals.
Unfortunately for the Wolfpack, they lost their leading scorer Daniels in their last game to a season ending injury. They will need multiple players like Hellems to step up in order to fill that void and squeeze out an NCAA Tournament spot.
- Orange are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall.
- Orange are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games vs. a team with a winning straight up record.
- Orange are 2-9 ATS in their last 11 home games vs. a team with a road winning % of less than .400.
Free Syracuse Orange vs. NC State Wolfpack NCAAB Prediction:
Even without Daniels, I think NC State finds a way to cover in this spot. The loss of Daniels is demoralizing, but Syracuse has also been wildly inconsistent this year.
