NC State vs Syracuse Prediction & Pick
Historically speaking, NC State usually salivates any time Syracuse is on the schedule. The Wolfpack have won 13 of 15 meetings against the Orange, including each of the last three matchups.
Unfortunately for NC State, winning won't be as easy this year. For starters, Syracuse is a different animal this season and boasts one of the best offenses in the country. The Orange have scored 31+ points in all but one game this season, which might be tough for the Wolfpack to match if quarterback Devin Leary ends up missing the game due to a shoulder injury.
At the end of the day, NC State's options are to either run with a hobbled Leary or go with backup QB Jack Chambers, who's gone just 6-of-14 for 48 yards and a TD in four career appearances. Regardless of which scenario winds up happening, the Wolfpack might shift to the run game and that's a battle that the Orange should win.
Give me Syracuse in this ACC rivalry game.
Final Score Prediction: Syracuse: 24 | NC State: 16

On top of the total hitting the under in five of Syracuse's last six ACC games, it's also hit the under in six of the last 10 meetings between these two rivals. With how well both teams' defenses have been playing this season, I'm inclined to take the under once again, especially if Leary ends up being sidelined.
Bet: Under 42.5 Points (-115)
