NCAAB - Duke vs NCState
(NCAAB) North Carolina State vs. Duke, 03/31/2024 5:05 PM, Score: 76 - 64
Total: 142.50 | -110.00 Over
Result: Loss
I'm on the over of 142.5 in this matchup of Duke vs NCState for these reasons:

- NCstate just put 67 points on Marquette, and 80 points on Texas Tech who are defensively on par with Duke.

- Duke has lost and won against NCstate this season, each of those meeting has gone over this total of 142.5

- Duke are by far the better scoring team. This is going to force the pace offensively for NCState who tend to play a slower paced game with the big men they have at their disposal.

- Duke need to shoot better from beyond the arc vs the Wolf Pack, because both times they played, Duke shot under their season average from long range. This will be a key factor in Duke winning this game.

- NCState has shot 33% and 40% from long distance in both the games played vs Duke this season. So they are capable of being involved in the shootout thay I expect this to be.

Official play: Over 142.5

Side Bet: NC State +7.5
