The Orange could be without their starting quarterback Eric Dungey as he exited their game last week in the first quarter with a head and shoulder injury.
His status will certainly have an impact on this betting line but you can expect if he were to play, that he will not be 100 percent.
North Carolina State Wolfpack
While the Wolfpack have one of the best defensive fronts in all of the ACC, that proved to be ineffective in their game against the high-powered offense of Louisville a few weeks ago.
Not that Syracuse’s offense is anywhere near the caliber of Louisville, but they play uptempo like Louisville and can wear down opposing defenses – particularly the big guys on the line.
If Dungey is able to play, the Wolfpack will be up against the quarterback who ranks second in the ACC in total yards only behind Lamar Jackson.
However, Dungey got off to a slow start this season in the uptempo offense. I wouldn’t expect anyone who would play as his replacement to be nearly as effective.
On the offensive side of the ball, the Wolfpack have struggled. They are averaging just 14.8 points per game in their last 5 games.
Quarterback Ryan Finley has been playing poorly of late – having thrown 7 interceptions in the last 4 games.
He has completed under 60 percent of his passes in 4 of the last 5 games.
Even if the North Carolina State defense is able to hold up well against Dungey or whoever leads the Syracuse offense, the Wolfpack will have a tough time winning due to their offensive inconsistencies.
Dungey has been one of the lone bright spots for Syracuse this season as they have struggled through their ACC schedule.
Yet, the offense hasn’t exactly been producing. They are averaging just 23.7 points per game – despite the production Dungey has been providing.
Their defense has been very poor – allowing 34.1 points per game – but they will have a chance to show some improvement against a struggling NC State offense.
Whoever plays quarterback – whether it is Dungey or not – will have to be wary of the solid front seven of the Wolfpack. The Orange will likely use their uptempo offense to try to neutralize that front but it won’t be easy to pick up yards on the ground.
Betting this game could be tricky as we may not know Dungey’s status until near kickoff but I think you are going to see a low-scoring affair either way.

Obviously, the total that is put on the board will determine what to bet but if this total is posted anywhere above 49 I would say to take the under.

Neither team has the offensive firepower to put a ton of points on the board.
If Dungey is out, I like the Wolfpack to take this game on the road by at least a touchdown as they could keep the Orange under 17 points.
