CLEMSON -3.5 NC State

It is a very tough bounce back game for NC State as they are playing just three days after nearly knocking off undefeated and No. 1 Syracuse. North Carolina State has benefitted from good fortune, going 8-3 in single-digit outcomes and 5-2 in games decided by five or less, so they could easily have a much worse mark.

True, the Tigers are also off tough losses, but hitting the road after nearly upsetting the top ranked undefeated team is a much tougher situation. Clemson is 10-2 straight up at home and facing a team that is under .500 on the road, which includes a one-point win not to mention a four-point struggle at UNC

Despite their good fortune, the Wolfpack is just a half-game better than Clemson in overall mark and they are both .500 in conference play. The Tigers are slightly better and home court in college basketball is generally worth about five points. They get the cover here.
