Marquette Golden Eagles College Basketball Betting

The NC State Wolfpack are a Cinderella surprise who hope to emulate their 1983 ancestors who shocked the world by winning the national championship. NC State struggled to stay above the .500 mark in the regular season and drowned gamblers in red ink. But the Wolfpack found another gear for March Madness, winning the ACC Tournament and their first two games of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. NC State beat Texas Tech and Oakland to advance to an unexpected Sweet 16 to face Marquette on Friday night. Last week Marquette beat Western Kentucky and Colorado to gain the Sweet 16.
