N.C. State is 19-7-1 against the spread following a loss, 18-6 against the spread at home against a team with a losing road record, and 1-4 against the spread in their last five games. Florida State is 10-3 against the spread in their last 13 road games, 8-3 against the spread following a loss, and 1-4 against the spread in their last five games.
I don’t see FSU going on the road and getting a win in what looks to be a fairly even game.
