(NCAAB) North Carolina State vs. Duke, 03/31/2024 5:05 PM, Score: 76 - 64
Point Spread: -6.50 | -107.00 Duke (Home)
Result: Loss
This is a 10* ELITE 8 TOP SIDE on Duke.

I've played on both these teams already in this tournament. However, I believe that the Wolfpack's Cinderella run is coming to an end finally.

Duke averages 79 PPG, while conceding 66.

NC State averages 76 PPG, while conceding 72.2.

These teams split a pair of games this year, but Duke will now have a chance to avenge the quarterfinal loss in the Conference tournament game.

Duke's an elite team that's had a couple huge "brain farts" this year. It's able to match up with anyone and it looked dominant defensively in its win over Houston.

I don't see the Wolfpack beating the Blue Devils twice in two weeks.

Duke was an 11.5-point favorite in the Conference Tournament, so is a huge overreaction now by the oddsmakers in trying to "lead" the general betting public?!

I'm not buying it, and am instead laying the points here with revenge-minded DUKE.

Good luck, NP
