TOM STRYKER’S FREE COLLEGE BASKETBALL SELECTION SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 24TH
#840 NC STATE (-) over Wake Forest at 6 PM EST
With wins in three of its last four games including a nice 89-80 home victory over Boston College on Wednesday night, NC State will stay hot and put on another show when Wake Forest comes to town on Sunday evening. The Demon Deacons check into this ACC battle off a rare SU and ATS road win at Notre Dame and they’re ripe for a beating.
Finding motivation won’t be very hard for the Wolfpack. Back on January 15th, State (-8) visited Wake and left with an embarrassing 71-67 loss in its pocket. Even with that blemish, the Pack own a reliable 21-14 SU and 23-11-1 ATS record in the last 35 meetings in this series including a rewarding 13-2 SU and 12-3 ATS if they’re at home. Equally impressive, when competing with same season single revenge, NCS carries a reliable 18-8 ATS mark in its last 26 tries including a golden 7-0 SU and ATS in this set if it is priced as a favorite or pick. Finally, when matched up against an opponent that holds a team won/loss percentage less than .500, the Wolfpack hold a juicy 18-7 ATS mark provided they take the court with four or more days of rest.
Backing Wake Forest here simply isn’t an option. When coming off a straight up win, the Demon Deacons have really struggled in their next contest inking a woeful 16-29 ATS record. In this role arriving off a blowout victory of seven points or more, Wake falls all the way down to a disturbing 8-17 ATS. Even worse, as a guest going into revenge, Wake sports a stiff 9-21 SU and ATS record in its last 30 tries including a pitiful 3-19 SU and 5-17 ATS in this set if it is matched up against a conference foe.
The Wolfpack are averaging 81.9 points per game this season and, in a payback mode, they should absolutely demolish a Demon Deacons “D” that has surrendered an average of 75.2 points per game. Take NC State. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
