Bet on NC State +12 Because…
The way NC State has shut down the run this year with stout defense is going to be a major factor in the way the Wolfpack attempts to dictate this pace of play. The North Carolina rushing offense is ranked No. 98 which shouldn’t prevent much trouble for the Wolfpack’s Stack Attack!
When NC State has the ball, they should be able to run it down the throat of UNC’s 114th ranked rushing defense and keep this game close. For games like this one, it is developing into a 2 team parlay College Football Pick due to the ball control probability of The Pack.
Bet on North Carolina -12 Because…
The Tar Heels get in-state rivals NC State at home this year after the NC State Wolfpack find themselves on somewhat a downturn. NC State comes into Chapel Hill after losing 5 of their last 6 games, and they really have nothing but a possible College Bowl game to gain out of winning.
The UNC QB Mitch Trubisky has been throwing darts to all his receivers this year completing nearly 70% of his passes while connecting in the end zone 25 times. A major key to the Tar Heels’ success has been Trubisky maximizing offensive production thru the air with minimal errors only throwing 4 picks so far. The NC State Wolfpack should get peppered by strikes infiltrating the lowly 89th ranked passing defense in the FBS, but don’t expect 350 yards passing and 4 TD passes by Mitch Trubisky.
NC State Vs North Carolina Final Score Prediction
The passing game has definitely been awesome this year for UNC, but this is going to be a different and much better defensive front that The Pack is bringing. The Tar Heels will be able to move the ball but not like they are used to this year.
Expect NC State to use their stud running back Matthew Dayes early, often, late and always! Dayes did not face UNC in last year’s contest, but expect him to eat and be the man behind a heavy dose of ball control. Since UNC is the worst in Time of Possession in the FBS, this game should be lower scoring and tighter than you would expect.
