Hofstra Pride

The Pride turned in an excellent regular season, finishing atop the Colional Standings with a 27-7 record. They also were sound against the spread this year, posting a 20-13 ATS record in lined games. That said, Northeastern ended Hofstra’s season in the conference tournament, beating the Pride 82-74 as a 2.5-point favorite. That loss ended the Pride’s dreams of advancing to the NCAA tournament, where they would have been considered one of the dark horse sleepers to make a run.

N.C. State Wolfpack

The Wolfpack finished in the middle of the ACC standings this year, they did have a successful season, finishing 22-11 straight up and 20-13 against the spread. Their season ended in the ACC tournament, losing as an 11.5-point underdog to Virginia, 76-56. In fact, the Wolfpack lost in three of their final five games, although they did stage a dramatic comeback against Clemson in the opening round of the ACC tournament before failing to the Cavaliers in the second.

Prediction

The over is 13-3 in the Pride’s last 16 games overall and 5-2 in their last seven road games but they’re stepping up in class and thus, the total is too high for tonight’s game. The under is 5-0 in the Wolfpack’s last five games and cashed in six of their previous five home games. The under is also 4-1 in Hofstra’s last five non-conference games so when you get the Pride out of CAA action, the under has been the better play.

NIT Prediction: Hofstra/NC State under 162.5
