Anyone else find it odd that the linesmakers made them a 3 point favorite against Belmont on Friday and tomorrow they are a 4.5 point favorite against NC State

Seems like they are begging for NC State money tomorrow with that number. I lean Wolfpack, but no play more than likely.

Maybe I'm a sucker (not for the first time), but I grabbed NC State +4.5 and I think it's the best play on tomorrow's card.

Nc state is playing good ball,Georgetown offence seems to struggle against better teams,I think nc st wins this straight up,Georgetown overrated,don't fall for trap..

Obviously money is keeping line -4 to -4.5 so people are hammering gtown otherwise line would move in... Nc state wins straight up

just for the record - opening lines for gtown was 4 against belmont and 4 against nc state. Belmont according to sagarin was ranked 33 going into the game and nc state is ranked 37 - the lines make sense between nc state and belmont.  I think the lines are overall kind of low but the way gtown historical has played - going out against vcu lastyear and play similarly like duke down the stretch seems to make sense. I think nc state will keep it close and possibly win today.

this game is hard to watch right now.  pace is 6th grade travel.  not impressed with either team.  winner will go no further.  big east is very dry to watch. slow sow slow....
