College Basketball Betting Trends
North Carolina State
The Wolfpack are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall. North Carolina State is 5-2 ATS in its last seven road games.
The Demon Deacons are 9-23 ATS in their last 32 games overall. Wake Forest is 3-8 ATS in its last 11 home games.
The Demon Deacons have lost all three of their ACC games by double digits and it won't get easier tonight. North Carolina State hasn't been great in its last couple games, but should be able to take advantange of Wake Forest deficiencies to post a sizable win on the road. North Carolina State likes to play fast and I don't think the Demon Deacons have the personnel to keep up.
