Kansas vs. N.C. State Pick

Kansas No. 2 (28-6) vs. N.C. State No. 11 (24-12)


The second matchup in the Midwest region pits the Kansas Jayhawks against the North Carolina Wolfpack. The Jayhawks arrived at this game after beating the Purdue Boilermakers 63-60. Kansas trailed for the majority of the contest and was behind by three points with less than a minute remaining.

The Wolfpack of North Carolina State arrives at the Sweet 16 on a big high. They eliminated the higher ranked Georgetown Hoyas last weekend to have the right to face Kansas.

A key matchup for the game will be between 6-8 forward Thomas Robinson of Kansas and 6-8 forward C.J. Leslie of NC State. Robinson, by some, is considered a good candidate for player of the year honors. If Leslie and his teammates can get the talented Robinson into foul trouble, then their team’s chances of an upset increase.

The backcourt of NC State will also have to step up their game. Kansas possesses two talented guards on their backcourt and C.J. Williams and Lorenzo Brown for the Wolfpack will have all they can do to contain their opponents.

The current line has the Kansas Jayhawks as 8-point favorites against the Wolfpack. The total is sitting at 142.5. The Jayhawks are 17-16-1 ATS this season and the North Carolina State is 18-14. Kansas has experienced large spreads as the favorite this season and has at times not been able to hold onto to those leads late in games.

This game will be close throughout and the athletic Wolfpack will give the tough, physical Jayhawks all they can handle inside. If the Wolfpack can open a lead against the Jayhawks, then they might hold on down the stretch to pull off the upset. Smart money will be placed on North Carolina State to cover the 8-point underdog spread.

Pick: North Carolina State (8) Total: UNDER
