Prediction

Both of these teams come into this games after wins on Saturday. Virginia has not looked near as good as there National Championship run last year. Virginia’s defense still ranks as one of the best in the country, but their offense has been one of the worst. Coming into this game Virginia has only been shooting 26.7% from behind the three-point line. NC State, on the other hand, has been shooting pretty well at 33.0%. NC State definitely has the edge in this game even if they are on the road. I will be taking NC State +4.5 in this one.

Best Bet: NC State +4.5
