(6) Creighton vs. (11) NC State

Leg 1 – Creighton -5.5 (-105)

The Creighton Bluejays have the DNA to go far in this year’s Tournament. They’ll have to escape NC State first.

Creighton has shot 36% from deep and 54.5% from inside the arc. The Bluejays have also nailed 76.7% from the foul line. But Creighton has struggled on the offensive glass and hasn’t gotten to the foul line as much as they would’ve liked.

The good news for Creighton is that NC State fouls at a high rate. Creighton could end up getting to the foul line more often.

Meanwhile, the Bluejays foul at one of the lowest rates in college basketball. That’ll keep NC State away from earning freebies. The Wolfpack have still shot 34.9% from deep and 51.4% from inside the arc. But with the Bluejays so dominant on the defensive glass, NC State has to make their shots to stay close in this game.

I like Creighton to cover here.

Leg 2 – Under 148.5 (-110)

It takes two teams to earn the over for such a high number.

Creighton will get foul shots but won’t get many second chances. NC State has also held teams to 32.2% from three, so three-pointers might not fall at a high clip for Creighton either.

On the other hand, NC State rarely gets to the foul line in the first place and won’t have much success on the defensive glass. If you take the over, you’re looking for North Carolina State to shoot lights out in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. The Wolfpack are experienced, but that’s hard to expect from a borderline tournament team.

Leg 3 – Terquavion Smith Under 15.5 Points (-108)

Smith didn’t show up against Clemson in the ACC Quarterfinal, scoring just 11 point son 5-for-18 from the field. His volume has been high, and his shot-making has been low.

He’s scored no more than 14 points in six of his last seven games. But he had one game with 30 points against Virginia Tech on 11-of-13 from the field. Don’t expect much out of Smith. He also won’t see the foul line much at all.
