College Basketball Betting Trends

North Carolina State

The over is 11-5 in the last 16 meetings. The over is 4-0 in the last four Wolfpack road games.

Florida State

The under is 4-1-1 in the last six Seminoles games on Saturdays. The over is 8-3-1 in the last 12 FSU home games.

Prediction:

The Seminoles are ranked 14th nationally in adjusted defensive efficiency and have been clamping down lately in ACC play. While the Wolfpack play at a fast pace, they have benefited lately from playing a couple much weaker defensive teams. Florida State won't bend nearly as easily and I think this one stays under the high projected total.
