Wolfpack fall flat at Demon Deacons

North Carolina State lost its second game out of its last three Tuesday night with a 71-67 setback at Wake Forest. The Wolfpack (14-3, 2-2 ACC) trailed 42-27 at halftime and their rally fell short in the second half. Torin Dorn led NC State with 18 points on 8-of-16 shooting plus 2-of-3 at the free throw line. He also grabbed eight rebounds. C.J. Bryce added 17 points, four boards and three assists. The Wolfpack shot 27-of-73 from the floor, 6-of-29 on 3-point attempts and 7-of-9 at the free throw line.

Fighting Irish fall short at UNC

Notre Dame lost 75-69 Tuesday night at 13th-ranked North Carolina to fall to 11-6 on the season and 1-3 in the ACC. The Fighting Irish led 36-33 at halftime and were unable to keep up that pace after the break. Notre Dame shot 25-of-61 from the field, 10-of-28 on 3-point tries and 9-of-14 at the free throw line. Prentiss Hubb led the Irish with 18 points on 6-of-16 shooting including 4-of-10 on 3-point attempts and 2-of-3 at the free throw line. He also tallied six assists and three rebounds.

College Basketball Betting Trends

North Carolina State

The Wolfpack are 1-4 ATS in their last five versus the ACC. North Carolina State is 10-21 ATS in its last 31 road games. 

Notre Dame

The Fighting Irish are 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall. Notre Dame is 1-6 ATS in its last seven home games.

Prediction:

North Carolina State has one signature win this season as it defeated Auburn at home, but has mostly feasted on wins versus teams outside the top 60. Notre Dame has struggled lately, but it has also won eight of its last nine home games even if it hasn't covered the spread much. I like the Irish today as short dogs as they could use a key win to get back on track.
