In the WCU win, North Carolina QB Nathan Elliott managed 308 yards with two TDs and two picks, and Javonte Williams rushed for three scores and 93 yards. Anthony Ratliff-Williams led the receivers for the Tar Heels on 84 yards from four catches.
The Wolfpack are 3-0-1 ATS in their last four road games versus a team with a losing home record and the under is 5-1 in their last six in November. The under is 17-5 in NC State’s last 22 conference games and 7-3 in their last 10 road games.
Meanwhile, the Heels are 4-1 ATS in their last five following an ATS loss and 7-2 ATS versus a team with a winning record. NC is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 conference games and the over is 3-0-1 in their last four conference games.
NC State’s pass game was cooking against the Cardinals, with three guys hauling in at least seven catches. It marks a continuation of solid play for the Wolfpack, who have a loss to Wake as their lone real blemish.
As for North Carolina, they’ve been scoring pretty well over their last several games but are just getting roughed up on the other side.
I’m going with the hot hand in NC State here.
