I’ll side with the Wolfpack here. NC State has just been a lot more trustworthy this season, and while Virginia Tech got themselves a nice win over Notre Dame, the reality is that this Virginia Tech team more often than not has been hard to back when you take them out of their home arena. I think NC State gets it done here so I’ll lay it and play it with NC State here.
