Purdue vs. North Carolina State Predictions

Purdue vs. North Carolina State PredictionsEvery year, a “’Cinderella” team shows up and this year, NC State is the one everyone has their eyes on. To make it this far, they beat Duke 76-64 and they are hoping to become the first low seed team to win the tournament. However, they are a “Cinderella” team for a reason as the sportsbooks have them as a +340 underdog.

The reason is because they have not been as consistent as Purdue and have only shot 34.7% from the three-point line.

On the other hand, the Boilermaker had Zach Edey and have been building their team around him. Looking at their performance over the last few seasons, it shows that this team is at its peak. Furthermore, Purdue has some of the best 3-point shooters in the NCAA and have a 40.6% rate outside the line. In terms of defense.

While we would love to put our money on North Carolina State, Purdue has too many advantages in this matchup. Purdue has never won an NCAA Basketball Championship and they are not going to let NC State get in their way. We expect Purdue to win and cover the spread with a final score of 79-69.

UConn vs. Alabama Picks and Analysis

While Alabama has been impressive, UConn’s defensive prowess and overall dominance make them the favorites in this matchup. This is because UConn is the No. 1 overall seed and has been dominant throughout the tournament.  Furthermore, The Huskies are riding an impressive 11-game winning streak.

What sets them apart is their defense has been stifling, holding their last 2 opponents to just 52 points per game. For those thinking about becoming a college bookie, these are important statistics to remember as you are setting your lines. This is because it is a major factor in determining the point spread.

On the other hand, Alabama’s guard, Mark Sears, has been outstanding, averaging 24.3 points per game during March Madness.

However, that will not be enough to beat Alabama as they will struggle against uConn. We predict that UConn will win against Alabama with a final score of 82-76,
