Play Rating:
4% – Marquette -6.5 (-112)

Have talked extensively about this matchup on the CBB show the past two days when it was -6.5 everywhere.  Now that it appears to be on the way to -7 I'll grab one of the remaining -6.5's that many legals still have (Played this at FanDuel).

Time for NC State to turn back into a pumpkin.  This was a bad basketball team for most of the seaosn, there's no doubt NC State has improved but I thought the Wolf Pack were fortunate in the first round to draw an uninterested/banged up Texas Tech team and then get to play Oakland (a game that went into OT and we covered the number).

Now they get Marquette, a team that can press them on their side of half court and fall back into a zone that will likely force tough shots.  Marquette has the best point guard in the country in Tyler Kolek who should be able to put DJ Burns in a blender running PNR.  UNC torched Burns on ball screens and we also know Shaka Smart can go “havoc” if he wants to which I would take against NC State's ball handlers.  

I don't see a scenario where NC State wins this game and if Marquette is ahead here there's a good chance the Golden Eagles pull away.

CBB Show (Wednesday):

Play on Marquette -6.5 (-112) for 4% (or 4 units)
