College Basketball Betting Odds:
The cavaliers step into this evening’s contest with a near flawless 18-1 record. However, since they’re 2-1 in their last 3, Virginia will be looking to make a statement this evening. After all, losing to No. 1 Duke was a missed opportunity. Tonight’s college basketball betting odds are pegging Virginia as a heavy favorite against no. 23 NC State. Considering that Virginia is 8-2 in their last 10 versus the Wolfpack, it makes perfect sense for the odds to come out so lopsided. But does this mean bettors will be better off sticking to the spread? Well the line is currently set at 7. Notwithstanding that prediction, Virginia actually comes in with a worse offense than tonight’s counterpart. Right now Virginia is scoring 74.1 per game while the Wolfpack delivers 85.3 per matchup.
Granted the Cavs are much better on defense since they only give up 52.6 per game while NC State allots 69.4. But seeing as how North Carolina State is 1-5 ATS in their last 6, it makes perfect sense to take Virginia against the spread tonight.
Players to Watch: Kyle Guy (15.0 ppg, 4.4 rpg, 2.0 apg), De’Andre Hunter (14.7 ppg, 5.4 rpg, 2.2 apg), and Ty Jerome (13.1 ppg, 4.3 rpg, 4.9 apg).
NC State Wolfpack
Entering tonight’s action sporting a 16-4 record, NC State is hopeful they can improve on their season long efforts. With a 2-2 record in their last 4, it’s safe to say that NC State doesn’t bring much momentum into tonight’s ACC contest. Seeing as how they’re facing the second best team in the conference this evening, it’s more than likely that NC State comes up short. They haven’t had much luck against Virginia and will likely fail to improve on their record this evening.
Players to Watch: Torin Dorn (14.3 ppg, 6.9 rpg, 1.5 apg), CJ Bryce (12.5 ppg, 5.3 rpg, 1.8 apg), and Markell Johnson (11.8 ppg, 1.8 rpg, 4.0 apg).
