Against The Spread Pick
A big ACC match-up takes to the floor at John Paul Jones Arena, as the North Carolina State Wolfpack will look to put the pressure on the Virginia Cavaliers. The Wolfpack have quietly put together a strong season, and is 3-1 in their last four games. The Cavaliers were able to snap their three-game slide with a tough victory over Georgia Tech in their last game. NC State is 7-2 ATS in its last nine road games. Virginia has struggled against the spread and has only covered in four of its last 15 games. The Wolfpack have lost each of their last eight visits to John Paul Jones Arena. It will likely be a tightly contested game, but backing Virginia to cover four points is a must.
Over Under Pick
The over hasn’t stood much of a chance in the last 10 head-to-head meetings between the Wolfpack and the Cavaliers. Only once in that span did the teams combine for an over total. Virginia has been pretty awful offensively and their season average maintains that. The Cavaliers are averaging less than 55 points per game, which may cause trouble moving forward. The scoring droughts make taking the under 116.5 the smart move here.
