The North Carolina State Wolfpack and Syracuse Orange face off on Wednesday in a college basketball showdown at Greensboro Coliseum. This is a big game for both teams as they try to make the NCAA tournament.
These two teams have faced off twice so far this year and it was Syracuse that was able to come away with a victory.
The NC State Wolfpack come into this game with a 13-9 record overall and coming into this game they have won five games in a row. In the last game against Notre Dame, the offense was elite, putting up 80 points and that led to an 11 point victory. NC State on the season is averaging 73.5 points per game while their defense is giving up 69.4 points per game.

The over is 6-2 in NC State’s last eight games played on Wednesday. The over is 8-1 in Syracuse’s last nine neutral site games.
Syracuse beat NC State twice this year, but I think the luck may change in this game. NC State is hot coming into this game and their offense is going to find success. Back NC State to come away with a cover of the spread.
