The public is split almost evenly on this game. Of the wagers currently on this matchup, only 51% of the tickets are on South Carolina and the points.
OUR PREDICTION: The Gamecocks have covered the spread in four straight neutral site games and are 7-2 against the number in their last nine games against ACC opponents. As for the Wolfpack, they've struggled to cover versus SEC foes, going 1-5 against the spread in their last six games versus the conference. This matchup is too close for N.C. State to be laying six points on neutral ground. I like the underdog.
