The Delaware State Hornets and the North Carolina Central Eagles meet in college basketball action from the Norfolk Scope Arena on Wednesday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
NC Central is listed as an 11.5-point favorite in this matchup with the total for this game set at 135.5 points.
Neither side has anyone listed on the injury report for this game, so barring any last-minute announcements, both sides will come into this game at full strength.
NC Central’s 66-58 win over Delaware State back on February 18th, 2023, made it seven straight wins for the Eagles in this head-to-head matchup.
Delaware State is 10-3-2 ATS in their last 15 games against a team with a winning record and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a loss while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 neutral site games. NC Central is 9-3 ATS in their last 12 neutral site games and 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400 while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall.
I’m backing the Eagles here. Delaware State’s had points this season where they’ve shown value with decent numbers of points, and they even snuck out a cover the last time these two teams met a couple of weeks ago. However, NC Central has come into the conference tournament on absolute fire and I just don’t see the Hornets being able to slow the Eagles down. I look for this to be over early from NC Central so give me the Eagles laying the points.
