Week 4 of the 2022 NCAA college football season includes a regional non-conference game between the Connecticut Huskies and the No. 12 NC State Wolfpack.

NC State is a huge -38.5 point favorite, and there is no moneyline due to the large spread. This Saturday night kickoff also features a below-average total of 49.5 points.

UCONN vs NC State Prediction & Pick

NC State is not nearly as impressive as their record and No. 12 ranking in the AP Poll. The Wolfpack were lucky to escape with a 21-20 win over East Carolina in their season opener and failed to impress in a 27-14 win over Texas Tech last week. While they trounced Charleston Southern 55-3, they've struggled against more formidable competition.

Connecticut is coming off back-to-back blowout losses as their offense has sputtered. The Huskies got blasted by Michigan last week and by Syracuse as well the week before that, losing by a combined 93 points.

The main issue for UCONN is that they're missing multiple starters and are banged up at the skill positions. That makes them tough to bet, but laying nearly 40 points with NC State has no appeal despite the Wolfpack's offense likely getting back on track against the defenseless Huskies. Connecticut is -6 in turnover differential as well, so they've been too careless with the football.

Final Score Prediction: NC State: 38 | UCONN: 7

UCONN vs NC State Best Bet

All NCAAF betting lines, odds and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.

NC State will roll, but their real focus is on their ACC opener next week at Clemson. That has to play into the handicap and consideration, especially if laying 40 points with a Wolfpack offense that has not looked anything like the unit that averaged 33.1 points per game a year ago.

Connecticut is allowing nearly 500 yards per game on defense, in part due to injuries and lack of healthy personnel. Still, this projects as a lower-scoring game given the offensive struggles on both sides thus far, making the Under our preferred bet here.

Bet: Under 49.5 (-110)
