The NC State Wolfpack have had a rough go of it lately as they have dropped three of their last four contests. However, they were able to pick up a much-needed victory in their last game versus the lowly Pitt Panthers thanks to 21 points from CJ Bryce.
The Syracuse Orange were able to atone for a setback loss to the Florida State Seminoles in their prior outing by picking up a win over the Boston College Eagles. They are now tied with Lousiville for fourth place within the ACC.
NC State Wolfpack
The Wolfpack have dropped six of their last ten games, overall. Three of these losses have come at home for NC State as they are losers of two of their last three, including a defeat to where they posted just 24 points versus the Virginia Tech Hokies in a 47-24 final.
Bryce certainly had the hot hand versus the Pitt Panthers as he pumped in 20 points while also going 4-5 from long range. Braxton Beverly also chipped in 17 points in the much-needed victory as well as he also went 5-9 from the arc.
Leading scorer for the season in Torin Dorn has struggled recently, yet was able to posted 13 points in their win versus Pitt. Nonetheless, Dorn continues to shoot 40% from the field on a nightly basis this season.
The Orange will be looking to win their fourth game in five outings as they will take on a struggling Wolfpack squad. And while the offense for Syracuse has been inconsistent (to put it mildly), their defense has been the tip of the spear in their success in allowing just 39% shooting to opponents.
And while they failed to reach the 70-point mark in scoring for their third straight game, they picked up yet another victory over the Boston College Eagles. And while the Orange did not shoot well from the floor, yet again, they held BC to just 33% on the night while also forcing 16 turnovers.
Tyus Battle (18 ppg) has continued his hot streak in averaging 23 points per game in the last four outings for the Orange. Also, 6’8” forward Oshae Brissett (14 ppg, 8 rebs) has recorded a double-double in the last three contests for the Orange despite hitting just 40% of his shots from the floor.

Free Syracuse Orange vs. NC State Wolfpack NCAA Prediction:
Despite a much-needed win over the Pitt Panthers, look for the Wolfpack to regress in this contest versus a defensive minded Syracuse squad. Also, look for Battle to push the past to kickstart an offense for the Orange that has had trouble throughout the year with consistency. In all, a loss will not be feasible for Syracuse in this matchup as they will control the pace throughout en route to an 81-71 victory.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Orange ATS
Again, the Orange will certainly establish themselves on the defensive end versus the Wolfpack in this contest. Of course, with NC State playing so inconsistently on the offensive end, look for the pressure defense for the Orange to prevent them from flowing smoothly on offense. In the end, the Orange will get yet another victory while coming a step closer to increasing their positioning in the ACC.
