NC State vs Clemson Prediction: PJ Hall Demands Respect

The kids are playing basketball all day today people. Reading that has to make you feel good. Be honest, when you read that, you felt good. Maybe not good but better than you did before you read it. That's all we can ask for in life. One thing I like to do is bet on the kids playing basketball all day. You can literally make a day out of it. I'm going all day today and to do that I'll need to have action on the NC State vs Clemson game at 4:30 pm ET. It's just how going all day works. We've got plenty of options in this one but I think I've settled in on one that is perfect. By perfect, I mean it has a zero percent chance of losing. That's pretty good.

PJ Hall Over 16.5 Points (+102) (Bet $100 to win $102)

This one is at FanDuel because I'm not paying -140 for 15.5 at DraftKings. Not with gas prices where they're at right now. Who can afford it? Give me a slightly higher number for +102 and I'll do it all the time. It's just how my brain works. Love the plus money.

This is an example of the books disrespecting a kid. It actually hurt my eyes when I saw this number. PJ Hall is nobody's 16.5 guy. If we're being honest, I'd never heard of him before today but after doing some research, I'm pretty confident I'm right here. The kid is nasty.

First off, PJ Hall is the alpha on the Clemson basketball team. The kid took 131 more shots than anyone on the team except for Al-Amir Dawes. That's crazy. In a game like today's where it's win or go home, I want the kid that the offense will go through. That kid for Clemson is PJ Hall.

Just knowing who will get shots is not going to win us a bet. Everyone knows that. The kid has to make the shots and PJ Hall is more than capable of doing that. For starters, the only kid that matches up with him for NC State size wise is Ebenezer Dowuona. Last time these teams played Dowuona racked up four fouls so there is that aspect to consider too.

Still, we don't care who guards PJ Hall because nobody on NC State will stop him. The Wolfpack just aren't a lock-down defensive team. Those kids want to outscore you not hold you down. Hall went for 20 last time against them and in his last five games playing his normal minutes, he's gone over 17 points in all of them. I bet this kid takes at least 16 shots today en route to covering this number.
