Miami vs. N.C. State Pick
Will the Miami and N.C. State offenses struggle on Saturday so bettors can cash the under when the two ACC teams clash at 12:30PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Wolfpack are 3-point home underdogs versus the Hurricanes while the over/under currently sits at 50 points. While the side hasn't moved off that 3 number, the total opened at 49.5 before climbing to 50.
MIAMI KEY TRENDS: The Hurricanes are a perfect 4-0 against the spread in their last four games in November and have covered at the betting window in 14 of their last 16 games after allowing less than 20 points in their previous game. They're also 4-1 against the number in their lat five games following a victory and are a perfect 5-0 ATS in their last five games after allowing less than 100 yards rushing in their previous game.
N.C. STATE KEY TRENDS: The Wolfpack have been solid at the betting window of late, covering in six of their last eight games overall and going 5-1 against the spread in their last six home games. They're also a perfect 6-0 against the spread in their last six games after accumulating more than 280 yards passing in their previous contest and are 20-8 against the number in their last 28 games after allowing less than 100 yards rushing in their previous contest.
OUR PREDICTION: Miami's defense has been a strong suit all season, as the unit is holding opponents to just 19.3 points per game (13th in the nation). Opponents are having difficulties moving the ball on the ground against the Hurricanes, who rank 38th in the nation in rushing yards allowed per game (140.2). N.C. State's defense has been even better in that regard, as the Wolfpack rank 4th in the country in rushing yards surrendered per game (100.3) and are 36th in points allowed (23.1 PPG). The under is 5-2 in the Hurricanes' last seven games coming off a win and has cashed in five of the Wolfpack's last six games overall.
