College Football Betting Trends
N.C. State is 6-2 with the under over its last eight road games and 20-8 with the under in its last 28 conference games.
Syracuse is 11-3-1 with the under in its last 15 home games and 5-1 with the under in its last six following a win.
This total is being set pretty high for teams that have hit the under somewhat regularly. N.C. State has a pretty good defense, which is what has led it to the good start. Syracuse is pretty capable on offense and on defense, but the Orange have been held back somewhat by strong defenses. I would expect the Orange to not run away in this game and for N.C. State to have an average showing on offense.
