Pick: NC State ML (+320)

This game between North Carolina State and Purdue is a huge underdog versus favorite situation in the opening game of the final four on Saturday night. It took a gametime buzzer beater to get NC State in the tournament, and Purdue has been one of the favorites to win the national championship all season long. However, now they will meet in the opening game of the final four here in Arizona on Saturday with a trip to the national championship game on the line. These are two of the hottest teams in the country right now and this should be a solid game here in this one. As one of them looks to book a trip to the national title game and bring home a national title when it’s all said and done.

North Carolina State came out of nowhere to win the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament, and they have been the hottest team in the country ever since. They will look to continue this Cinderella run with another quality performance here on Saturday night against Purdue. They have easily been the hottest team in the country since the start of their conference tournament, and they will look to further extend their winning streak with another quality performance. They put together a solid run to get to the tournament by winning the automatic bid for the conference, and they have not looked back since. Now they will look to pick up yet another upset victory and put themselves in the national championship game for the first time in nearly 40 years. 

North Carolina State comes into this game with 26 victories through their first 40 games of the season and they will look for win number 27 here in this one. They will need to find a way to shut down the best player in the country here on Saturday night in Arizona. As Edey will be a force to be reckoned with throughout all 40 minutes of this contest. However, with the way that DJ Burns has been playing he has a case for himself to establish the fact that he has been the best player throughout this tournament. He will look to further prove that narrative to be true with another solid performance here in this one, as he looks to lead his team to the national title game.

For the first time since the 1980s a team that is typically considered one of the Blue Bloods of the Midwest for college basketball has made their way to the final four. The Boilermakers have been considered a favorite to win the tournament multiple times over the last few years and this is the year they have the best shot at doing so. They look to pick up a victory over North Carolina State and continue their solid run throughout the tournament with a national title appearance. Zach Edey cemented his status as the best player in the country this season, and he will look to cap off his collegiate career with a national title victory.

Purdue has been playing basketball all season long and they will look to keep the momentum rolling throughout this game on Saturday night in Glendale. They are only two victories away from reaching the ultimate goal that they were favored to reach over the last three years. However, they were upset early on in the tournament in both of those seasons, and now they look to be back with a vengeance this season. As they try to finally grab that elusive national championship that has avoided them in the tournament era. They are the favorites to win this game and they will have to continue playing as well as they have throughout the tournament on both ends of the court if they want to get the job done here in this one.

Betting trends to consider in this matchup:

- NC State is 18-7 after a win

- NC State is 8-1 after 4+ days off 

- NC State is 11-3 outside of the ACC

I look for this to be a close and competitive game here on Saturday night in Arizona. I look for the Cinderella run of North Carolina State to continue throughout this game as I look for them to pick up the victory over Purdue here in this one. I expect DJ Burns to put together an incredible contest here on Saturday night as he leads North Carolina State to their first national championship appearance since they won it all back back in the 1980s.
