Over on the NC State side, they’re currently 7-4 on the year. The Wolfpack have lost three of their last four games versus Notre Dame, Clemson and Wake Forest. In that Demon Deacons game, NC State QB Ryan Finley had 327 yards, one TD and one INT. 

On the season, Finley has 2992 yards with 16 TDs and five INTs, while Nyheim Hines leads the NC State rush with 844 yards and seven touchdowns. Tops in receiving for the Wolfpack is Kelvin Harmon with 64 catches for 972 yards and four TDs. 

The Tar Heels are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games in November and 2-5 ATS versus a team with a winning record. North Carolina is also 2-7 ATS in their last nine conference games and the under is 6-2 in their last eight games following a straight-up win. 

Meanwhile, the Wolfpack are 4-1-1 ATS in their last six games following a straight up loss and 3-1-1 ATS in their last five conference games. NC State is also 5-2 ATS in the last seven games following an ATS loss and 2-5 ATS in the last seven home games. 

North Carolina looked pretty bad during that losing streak, never scoring more than 19 points in the six-game span. The Tar Heels have bounced back offensively in the last two games, putting up a combined 99 points. As for NC State, they’ve been flailing a bit over the last handful of games but for the most part have been staying in them. I like the Wolfpack to show some dominance here and cover.
