Iowa State transfer Farnold Degand may end up with the job but second-year coach Sidney Lowe has some nice talent to work with including Tennessee transfer Marques Johnson and freshman Javi Gonzalez and they may impact NCAA basketball odds.
NCAA basketball odds will be impacted this year by North Carolina State senior Gavin Grant. Junior shooting guard Courtney Fells should get a lot of playing time as well according to basketball odds makers. The addition of power forward J.J. Hickson may give N.C. State the best frontcourt in the conference according to experts that bet NCAA basketball odds. Forwards Brandon Costner and Ben McCauley each averaged double figures last year as well and will help N.C. State according to the NCAA basketball odds makers.
Experts that look at NCAA basketball odds see that head coach Lowe has a really solid team that should make a lot of noise in the ACC. Last year the Wolfpack scored only 71.7 points per game against basketball odds but should be much better this season. The defense may be just as good as last year when they shutdown many opponents on the basketball odds board. Last year the Wolfpack made a run to the final of the 2007 ACC Tournament and could be excellent in 2007-2008 according to NCAA basketball odds makers. The Wolfpack are a very dangerous team and one to follow in NCAA basketball odds. Costner is a rising star while Fells and McCauley are solid as NCAA basketball odds makers see. Hickson will be excellent and Grant is a possible star that could make an impact in NCAA basketball odds betting.
North Carolina State will need someone to play guard and run the offense according to NCAA basketball odds makers. If that happens the Wolfpack may make a lot of noise this season versus basketball odds. The NCAA basketball odds makers think that Hickson is a future star and could easily be the ACC Rookie of the Year. North Carolina State should not be ignored this season as you consider your basketball bets. They have some serious talent that could win a lot of games in 2007-2008.
