The Clemson Tigers of the Atlantic Coast Conference will meet with the NC State Wolfpack of the Atlantic Coast Conference in NCAAB action in PNC Arena Raleigh, NC, on Saturday, January 8, 2022, at 12:00 PM (EST).

 

The Clemson Tigers had a 9-5 overall record and a 1-2 ACC record into this match. They had just one shock victory against quality competition, but it was a terrific one, a 67-50 triumph over Virginia on Dec. 22 as 3.5-point favorites.

 

However, on January 4th, they faced Virginia again and dropped 75-65 at home, despite being 3-point favorites. The Tigers’ other ACC setback came against Miami when they lost 80-75. The Cavaliers shot 54 percent from the field in their defeat to Virginia earlier this week.

 

The only aspect that kept Clemson in the match was their scorching shooting from beyond the arc, as they made 9 of 20 attempts. Clemson was led by Hunter Tyson, who had 15 points and 9 rebounds, and David Collins, who had 14 points.

 

Nick Honor produced 11 points and a team-high four assists, while PJ Hall contributed 13 points. Hall tops the squad in scoring with 14.3 points per game, while Tyson averages 12 points per game and Collins scored 11.8. KenPom has Clemson rated No. 43 in the USA. Their offensive efficiency is 24th, while their defensive efficiency is 91st.

 

  • The University of Clemson Tigers is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 matches.

Clemson Tigers vs NC State Wolfpack Predictions 1/8/2022

 

The Wolfpack of NC State is 8-7 overall and 1-3 in the Atlantic Coast Conference. They did not perform badly, but the wins did not come as frequently as they would like.

 

They lost non-conference games to Oklahoma State, Purdue, and Richmond, all of which were competitive. However, they also lost to Wright State, a team they were favored to defeat. They lost to Miami, Louisville, and Florida State in the league, all of which were tough opponents.

 

The good news is that they just won their first league game, defeating Virginia Tech 68-63 on Tuesday. As the match was played at Virginia Tech, they were a 9-point favorite.

 

It was a terrific victory for Tech, which is rated 30th in KenPom, especially on the road. NC State shot 44% and dominated Virginia Tech on the glass, outrebounding them 36-26 and grabbing 14 offensive rebounds.

 

Dereon Seabron led the way with 21 points and ten rebounds. Seabron averages 19.7 points per game and 9.8 rebounds. Terquavion Smith contributed 17 points, including four three-pointers, while Jericole Hellems chipped in 15 points. Smith and Hellems both score 14.6 points per game on average.

 

  • The University of North Carolina State Wolfpack is 4-12 ATS in their last 16 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 6 of North Carolina State’s last 9 matches against Clemson.
  • The total went OVER in 5 of North Carolina State’s last 6 matches in the ACC.

Clemson Tigers vs NC State Wolfpack. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Clemson Tigers. Both of these teams competed hard but fell short in the ACC or against higher-ranked opponents more often than not.

 

But I favor Clemson’s chances here since the Tigers previously showed they can win on the road with a huge win at Virginia. One, they are excellent three-point shooters, shooting 41 percent from beyond the arc and ranking fifth in the country in that metric.

 

NC State ranks 268th in the US in three-point defense. Clemson is extremely good on defense, restricting opponents to a 41% shooting percentage. NC State’s offense is inefficient, ranked 284th in field goal %, so scoring should be difficult against a strong Clemson defense. The Clemson Tigers will win to a predicted score of 68-66.
