LSU Tigers vs. North Carolina State Wolfpack Betting Preview


The LSU Tigers collide with the North Carolina State Wolfpack on Thursday in the NCAA Tournament.

The LSU Tigers finished third in the SEC Conference and have won five of their last eight outings. However, the LSU Tigers will look to bounce back from a 73-70 overtime loss against the Auburn Tigers last time out. The Tigers average 74 points on 46 percent shooting this year and allow opponents to score 68 per game on 40 percent shooting. Big man Jarell Martin leads the way with seventeen points and nine rebounds, while Jordan Mickey is averaging sixteen points and ten boards. 

The North Carolina State Wolfpack were sixth overall in the ACC and have won six of their last eight contests after a disappointing 77-53 loss to the Duke Blue Devils this past Thursday. The Wolfpack average 71 points on 44 percent shooting on the season and allow 65 points on 40 percent shooting. Point guard Trevor Lacey leads the team with sixteen points and three assists, while Ralston Turner is averaging thirteen points and three rebounds. North Carolina State has surrendered 70 points or more in three of their last six games.

LSU 7-3 ATS final ten games of season  

LSU was 7-1 ATS as an underdog this season

Shawn's Pick:

I'm grabbing the points with the LSU Tigers over North Carolina State. I expect a close one as the Tigers have gone 5-1 against the spread in their last seven non conference games and 7-3 against the spread in their last ten games overall. Play is on LSU.
