Wake Forest vs NC State Week 10 Game Info

2022 NCAA College Football Game
No. 21 Wake Forest Demon Deacons (6-2, 2-2 ACC) vs. No. 22 NC State Wolfpack (6-2, 2-2 ACC)
Date: Saturday, Nov. 5, 2022
Time: 8:00 p.m. ET
Venue: Carter-Finely Stadium — Raleigh, NC
Coverage: ACC Network

Week 10 of the 2022 NCAA college football season includes an ACC showdown between the No. 21 Wake Forest Demon Deacons and No. 22 NC State Wolfpack. Wake Forest is fresh off a devastating 48-21 loss to Louisville in which the Demon Deacons committed 6 turnovers in the third quarter alone.

Meanwhile, NC State snuck by Virginia Tech by a score of 22-21 in Week 9. Quarterback MJ Morris stepped up with 265 passing yards (20-of-29) and 3 touchdowns. The former third-stringer is now the starter for the Wolfpack and will look to spark the offense moving forward.

Wake Forest enters this contest as a small road favorite on the moneyline and the spread. This ACC clash also features a total of 54.5 points, which is about average compared to this week's college football projected totals.

Wake Forest vs NC State Prediction & Pick

Absolutely nothing went right for the Demon Deacons on Saturday. The turnovers came from all over the place, but it was quarterback Sam Hartman who really struggled for the first time this year. He completed just 20 of his 35 pass attempts for 271 yards, 1 touchdown and 3 costly interceptions.

This isn't exactly a matchup Hartman can exploit, either. NC State is allowing the fewest points (17.4) and the fourth-fewest passing yards per game (195.3) in ACC play this season. The Wolfpack are also 15-0 straight up in their last 15 home games, so I'm backing them to earn a conference victory here.

Final Score Prediction: Wake Forest: 24 | NC State: 28

Wake Forest vs NC State Betting Trends

- Wake Forest is 4-1 straight up in its last five games against NC State.
- The total has hit the over in six of Wake Forest's last eight away games.
- NC State is 0-5 against the spread (ATS) in its last five games.
- The total has hit the over in four of NC State's last five games in November.

Wake Forest vs NC State Best Bet

As mentioned above, Hartman is going to have a hard time finding his open receivers on Saturday. It's also worth mentioning that on the other side, Morris is facing a Wake Forest defense that has been much more generous, allowing 233.5 passing yards per game. There's a ton of value in backing the underdog here.

Wake Forest has not won in Carter-Finley Stadium since 2006 and NC State is 6-1 against the spread (ATS) in its last seven home games against its conference foe. The crowd noise is definitely going to make an impact in this one and cause the Demon Deacons to make a few impactful mistakes late.

Bet: NC State +3.5 (-118)
