N.C. State falls at BC
The N.C. State Wolfpack are coming off a 45-25 loss at Boston College two weeks ago. They have alternated wins and losses over their last six games. N.C. State is 4-3 on the season, 1-2 in the ACC, 2-5 against the spread and 5-2 with the under.
N.C. State isn’t too bad on defense, allowing just 22.7 points and 354.1 yards per game. Louis Acceus is leading the defense with 45 tackles and 4.5 sacks. Offensively, the Wolfpack are averaging 27 points and 414.7 yards per contest. Devin Leary was given the ball to lead the offense last week and he threw for three touchdowns. Leary has 336 passing yards on the year. Zonovan Knight is leading the ground game with 381 yards and three touchdowns while Emeka Emezie has 35 catches for 380 yards.
Wake edges FSU
Wake Forest bounced back from its first loss of the season by beating Florida State 22-20 two weeks ago at home. The Demon Deacons are now 6-1 on the season, 3-1 in the ACC, 3-3-1 against the spread and 4-3 with the under.
The Demon Deacons have one of the top offenses in the nation, averaging 37.1 points and 523.9 yards per game. Defensively, Wake is allowing 26.7 points and 419.3 yards per contest. Jamie Newman is leading the team with 1,772 passing yards and 17 touchdowns, while also rushing for 275 yards and three touchdowns. Newman is questionable to play this weekend due to a shoulder injury. Sage Surratt is the top receiver with 53 catches for 881 yards and nine touchdowns. Carlos Basham Jr. is leading the defense with 32 tackles and 5.5 sacks.
College Football Betting Trends
The Wolfpack have hit the over in four of their last five road games, but have hit the under in nine of their last 12 games in November.
The Deacons have hit the under in five of their last six games in November and in five straight following a cover.
These two have hit the under in their last two meetings, going under 55 points in both contests. The big key here is the health status of Newman. If he is unable to go, that is a major blow to the Wake Forest offense. Keep an eye on his status as the week goes on. Wake has impressive offensive numbers, but they actually have scored 27 or less in three of their four ACC games. The only scoring outburst came against a really poor Louisville defense. N.C. State has been better on defense and could limit the Wake offense. I wouldn’t expect too much from the Wolfpack offensively, as they have scored 24 or less in three straight games.
