Against The Spread Pick

The Wolfpack are securely on the bubble, but a bad loss to North Carolina last time out really hurt their chances. Now having lost two in a row, they must win this game against a terrible Pittsburgh team. Speaking of the Panthers, they have lost five in a row and eight of their last ten. Pitt are only 6-12 in the ACC and look to be head nowhere this postseason. At the very least, the Panthers could try and play spoiler this weekend. Note that Pittsburgh is 2-6 ATS in their last 8 meetings with the Wolfpack and are also 6-11-1 ATS in the ACC this season. I look for the Wolfpack to play with a sense of urgency and they win this game by a wide margin as they have no room for error.

Over Under Pick

This is not a total I am looking to bet because both teams continue to be inconsistent. Especially on the road, Pitt scores an average of 63.6 points, while the Wolfpack score an average of 75.9 points at home. Pittsburgh have been even worse recently, scoring only 56 points on average over their last five games. The under is 10-1 in NC State’s last 11 home games, 13-5 in their last 18 overall and 10-4 in their last 14 against the ACC. There is no way I can trust the Panthers to keep up, so I will take the under as my play.
