NC State faces Miami on Wednesday, December 29th, 2021 at the Watsco Center for a college basketball ACC matchup.
NC State is coming off an 84-70 loss to Wright State in its last game on December 21st at home. NC State has lost three straight games and four of its last five, as the Wolfpack have struggled as we near the new year. NC State is 7-5 overall this season and is 0-1 in conference play after its loss to Louisville on December 4th. NC State's leading scorer so far this season has been G Dereon Seabron, who has scored 19.0 points per game for the Wolfpack. Seabron also leads the team in rebounds per game (10.2) and assists per game as well (2.8). NC State as a team has scored 76.7 points per game and has shot the ball at a 41.2% clip from the field. NC State has also allowed 74.3 points per game to its opponents.
Miami is coming off an 82-72 win over Stetson in its last game on December 20th at home. Miami has now won five straight as the Hurricanes are off to a 9-3 start to the season overall and a 1-0 start in conference play after beating Clemson. Miami was not projected big things out of the ACC this season but the Canes have played well enough to turn some heads early on. Miami's leading scorer so far this season has been G Kameron McGusty, who has scored 18.4 points per game for the Hurricanes. Miami's leading rebounder this season has been G Jordan Miller (5.9 rebounds per game) and G Charlie Moore leads the team in assists per game (3.4). Miami as a team has scored 73.8 points per game and has shot the ball at a 45.9% clip from the field. Miami has also allowed 71.0 points per game to its opponents this season.
Miami is a 4-point favorite and the total is set at 146. I am not in love with how NC State has looked recently, but as we know, conference games are usually more competitive than non-conference contests, and I do expect NC State to be up for this one. This game should be rather close and I would rather have the points here than lay any. I think Miami wins, but NC State covers so I will take the Wolfpack and the points.
