Two teams from the ACC will be squaring off when the NC State Wolfpack visits the Miami Hurricanes on Saturday.
NC State is coming off of a win and Miami is coming off of a tough loss.
The Wolfpack started off as 2.5 point favorites and that number has gone up to 3.5. Most totals I have seen are at 53 points, but I have seen some at 53.5.
NC State Wolfpack
The #18 team in the nation has been very good this year and they may just be the best team in the ACC. What they have done so far is very impressive.
The Wolfpack easily took care of Boston College last week, as they beat them by a score of 33-7. The game was never in question for them.
Against the Eagles, Devin Leary was sharp. He went 16/24 for 251 yards and 3 touchdowns. He has had a good season so far and he will look to keep that up against the Hurricanes.
The running game was not that great in the win last week, but the receivers sure did their thing. Thayer Thomas had 4 grabs for 122 yards. I look for the receiving corps to have a big day against that weak defense for Miami.
The defense so far has been pretty good for this squad. They will be in for a challenge on Saturday because although Miami is not a great team, they do have the ability to score a lot of points.
All I heard about before the season started was how good Miami was going to be this year. The reality is they are not a good football team and that should not surprise folks. At this point, all this team has is name recognition.
The Canes battled back against North Carolina last Saturday but still fell short by a score of 45-42. They did cover, however.
Tyler Van Dyke was not very good in his last game. He went 20/45 for 264 yards and 3 interceptions. He also ran the ball 9 times for 36 yards.
Jaylan Knighton had a big day running the ball against the Tar Heels. He had 17 carries for 92 yards. The leading receiver was Keyshawn Smith who had 7 carries for 73 yards. Offensively, this team has been good recently.
The defense continues to really struggle. They had no answers for North Carolina last week and I do not see them having many answers for NC State. It would really surprise me if they were able to contain the Wolfpack.

Free Week 8 NCAA Football Pick
This is a matchup between two teams that are going in totally different directions. A lot of people thought that the Canes would be better than the Wolfpack right about now.
I like the Wolfpack to win this game straight up on Saturday.
4* Free Week 8 NCAA Betting Pick:
NC State is the better team and they are rolling. It does not seem like many teams in their conference can slow them down. This is a very dangerous team.
The offense for the Wolfpack has been very efficient so far this year. I could totally see them putting up a lot of points against their opponent in this one.
Miami certainly will be tested by this defense of NC State, but I do expect them to score a decent amount of points. I just do not think that it will be enough to get a win.
Give me NC State on the road here.
