The Miami Hurricanes are coming off their best performance of the season where they nearly beat UNC, but now they have to prove they can string those showings together. The NC State Wolfpack are quietly one of the better offensive teams in the country and have had a great deal of covering success at home. I don't trust the Canes right now. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the NC State Wolfpack at home.
