NCAA basketball betting handicappers realize that NC State desperately needs this one and has been a good value with college basketball bets. The North Carolina State Wolfpack have been operating in the bottom third of the Atlantic Coast Conference but that has kept them off the radar screen and has actually served to enhance their overall NCAA basketball betting value.
The Wolfpack had an overall mark of 14-10 straight up but was 12-6-1 on their college basketball bets. Since January 17 when the thick of ACC play started the Wolfpack has been an even stronger NCAA basketball betting commodity as they covered 7 out of 9 games through February 18.
The Pack has already scored a NCAA basketball betting victory over Wake Forest this season on February 11 by a score of 82-76 as 4.5-point home dogs. NC State has also been a reliable “over” team against the NCAA basketball betting board with an overall record of 11-6 over the total.
State ranked a respectable 77th overall on offense but their defense has been a NCAA basketball betting weakness as it ranked 211th in the nation. Wake Forest is part of a log jam for second place in the ACC with Clemson, Duke, Florida State, and Boston College.
The Demon Deacons had an overall NCAA basketball betting record of 20-4 straight up and 12-8 on their college basketball bets. Wake Forest has also been a reliable “over” team on the NCAA basketball betting board, particularly at home as evidenced by their mark of 7-3 over the total as a host.
Wake Forest’s main NCAA basketball betting asset has been their 7th ranked offense while their defense ranked 203rd. Jeff Teague has been a major ingredient in Wake Forest’s NCAA basketball betting success as he led the team in scoring with an average of 20 points per game. From February 8 through the 18th, the Deacons got the cash 3 out of 4 times.
