The Elon Phoenix have had issues getting stops against lesser teams than NC State, so this game doesn’t bode well for them here. The NC State Wolfpack are far and away the better side here, and they’ve been on a roll offensively. The only concern for NC State is this is a look ahead spot with Kansas on deck. Still, I’ll lay the points with the Wolfpack.
