Date: Thursday, Oct. 27, 2022
Time: 7:30 p.m. ET
Venue: Carter-Finley Stadium — Raleigh, NC
Week 9 of the 2022 NCAA college football season includes an ACC showdown between the Virginia Tech Hokies and No. 24 NC State Wolfpack. Life hasn't been kind to the Hokies, who have now lost four straight games following a 20-14 defeat at the hands of Miami two weeks ago.
After starting the year 4-0, the Wolfpack have now lost two of their last three games. NC State could hardly get any offense going in their 24-9 loss to No. 18 Syracuse on Oct. 15. Only time will tell if Dave Doeren's team can rebound in this rivalry matchup.

Virginia Tech vs NC State Prediction & Pick
Even if NC State hasn't been consistent in recent weeks, it's important to highlight that its losses came against Syracuse and Clemson, the latter of which was ranked No. 5 at the time.
The Wolfpack have an excellent chance to rebound against the Hokies, who have a putrid offense. Virginia Tech has been held to 14 or fewer points in three of its last four games, as well as only scoring just 18.7 points per game on the road this season.
Even with NC State searching for more consistency, the program has still averaged 32.6 PPG against unranked schools this season. With how poorly the Hookies have moved and scored the ball this season, the Wolfpack aren't in much jeopardy here as long as they stick to what's made them successful so far.
Final Score Prediction: NC State: 28 | Virginia Tech: 17

Virginia Tech vs NC State Best Bet
All NCAAF betting lines, odds and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.
Even though the total has hit the under in four of the last six Virginia Tech-NC State meetings, don't count on it happening this week. The average total for those six games was 49.7 points on top of the fact that the two sides have combined for over 40.5 points in each of their last four showdowns.
Even with Virginia Tech's offense being mediocre, NC State is good enough to pick up the slack, resulting in the over being hit here.
Bet: Over 40.5 Points (-110)
