There is a palpable sense of optimism surrounding the North Carolina State Wolfpack men’s basketball team this season. Currently boasting 13-4 record heading into a matchup against Virginia Tech, Kevin Keatts’ squad is hoping to build on an impressive 2022-23 campaign in which they won 23 games and made the NCAA Tournament. With two returning starters, impactful transfers additions, and a strong recruiting class, this year’s team has the potential to win even more and make serious noise in the ultra-competitive ACC.

It’s been over three decades since NC State last won the ACC regular season title back in 1989. But given their talent and mix of veterans and promising newcomers, they look capable of challenging the conference heavyweights. North Carolina sports bettors will soon be able to wager on whether the Wolfpack can capture that elusive conference crown. When North Carolina sports betting apps launch later this winter, futures bets on NC State’s conference title odds of +1200 on Caesars Sportsbook will become available.

Keatts understood the importance of backfilling the production lost from departed stars Terquavion Smith and Jarkel Joiner, hitting the transfer portal hard by bringing in seven transfers. The most impactful likely being guards DJ Horne (15 points, 1.5 steals per game) and Jayden Taylor (12 points per game), as well as forward Mohamed Diarra (5.8 rebounds per contest). The coach still managed to add an intriguing four-star recruit in guard Dennis Parker, a well-rounded talent putting up 6.8 points and 4.3 boards per outing.

NC State will lean heavily on returning veteran starters DJ Burns Jr. (12.4 points, 4.3 rebounds) and Casey Morsell (11.3 points, 2.9 rebounds). That duo combined for over 24 points per game last season and have maintained that output. How all these new pieces coalesce will determine if the Wolfpack can truly threaten in the ACC. But North Carolina residents will soon have legal North Carolina sportsbook options and attractive North Carolina sportsbook promos to use when betting on that conference race.

The imminent launch of North Carolina betting apps comes just as ACC play is heating up. That will allow Tar Heel state bettors to capitalize on enticing welcome offers, like a possible BetMGM North Carolina bonus code providing first bet insurance or site credit through a “Bet and Get” promotion for new users. Expect online books like DraftKings Sportsbook to offer North Carolina-specific promo codes that could award $200 in bonus bets for a mere $5 wager on the Wolfpack’s conference futures.

While an ACC crown may remain out of reach, NC State seems well-positioned to garner another NCAA tourney appearance. North Carolina sports fans will soon be able to back that push by wagering on Wolfpack games all season long. And they’ll be able to do so with confidence thanks to the security and convenience of regulated North Carolina betting apps.
