Odds: Wake Forest is favored by 9 points (opened at 7.5). Over/Under is 169.5 points. Ken Pom projects that Wake Forest will win 91-81 (83% win probability).
The Wake Forest Demon Deacons will host the North Carolina State Wolfpack in a pivotal mid-February tilt. The Deacs defeated State 93-88 in Raleigh just three weeks ago and enter this game as a reasonable favorite (9 points). This is a game that the Deacs have to win in order to keep NCAA Tournament hopes alive, and I expect them to do so. State is a talented offensive team, but they are 226th nationally in adjusted defensive efficiency and have lost four straight contests.
I hope that you all will join me in the comments section throughout the game. As always, go Deacs!
