Clemson vs NC State Key Stats
This season, Clemson had a great start, winning 10 of their first 11 conference games while winning 18 of their first 22 games overall. In their first encounter, the Tigers defeated NC State with ease, 78-64. However, they have dropped four of their last six contests, one of which was to the weak Cardinals’ unit.
At 15.8 points and 9.4 rebounds per game, senior forward Hunter Tyson leads the Tigers. PJ Hall, Chase Hunter, and Brevin Galloway have promulgated the Tigers’ offense alongside Tyson by averaging in double digits this season.
The most recent projections presently have NC State as the No. 8 seed, but they might use another victory on Saturday. The Wolfpack are currently alone in fourth place in the ACC rankings after two consecutive victories over North Carolina and Wake Forest.
Terquavion Smith, a sophomore guard, leads the Wolfpack in scoring with 17.9 points, 4.4 assists, and 3.5 rebounds per game. Sophomore forward DJ Burns is contributing 12.8 points and 5.0 rebounds, and senior guard Jarkel Joiner is contributing 17.0 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 3.6 assists.
Tigers vs Wolfpack Betting Prediction
The Wolfpack are taking on a Clemson club who have dropped five straight road games despite having won 10 straight at home. These teams are also moving in opposite ways since the Tigers are aware that their loss to Louisville last week probably ended their chances of making the NCAA Tournament.
At NC State, they’ve had trouble lately, dropping four of the previous five games. Too many things, especially Clemson’s propensity to win games via hot shooting, are leading towards betting on the home team to cover the spread in this one.
Pick: NC State Wolfpack -6 (-110)
