Click Here for the Latest Odds

The Connecticut Huskies will play the NC State Wolfpack in a non-conference game on Saturday night at Carter-Finley Stadium in Raleigh, North Carolina.

The Connecticut Huskies are 1-3 this season after they were blown out by Michigan by a score of 59-0 in their last game. Connecticut only gained 110 total yards in this game and went 2-14 on third down conversions in the loss. The UCONN offense is averaging 15.5 points per game with 105 passing yards per game and 175.5 rushing yards per game. Zion Turner has thrown for 390 yards, four touchdowns, and three interceptions for the Huskies this season. Devontae Houston has rushed for 72 yards and one touchdown, while Aaron Turner has caught 13 passes for 163 yards and one score for Connecticut. The UCONN defense is allowing 35.3 points per game and 429.8 yards per game.

The NC State Wolfpack are 3-0 this season after they defeated Texas Tech by a score of 27-14 in Week 3. NC State jumped out to a 20-0 lead in this game and was able to force Texas Tech into four turnovers for the win. The NC State offense is averaging 34.3 points per game with 230.3 passing yards per game and 153.7 rushing yards per game. Devin Leary has thrown for 570 yards, five touchdowns, and one interception for the Wolfpack this season. Demie Sumo-Karngbaye has rushed for 203 yards and two touchdowns, while also catching six passes for 102 yards and one score. Thayer Thomas has caught 10 passes for 102 yards and one touchdown for NC State. The NC State defense is giving up 12.3 points per game and 295.3 yards per game.

Connecticut is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS loss and 1-6-2 ATS in their last 9 games against the ACC. The over is 5-2-1 in Connecticut’s last 8 games. NC State is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 September games and 12-3 ATS in their last 15 home games. The over is 6-2 in NC State’s last 8 home games.

Connecticut is coming off of an absolute beat down at the hands of Michigan last week and will be in for a similar fate here. NC State has looked good in their last two games after almost losing in their first game of the year. I like the over in this game. NC State should be able to score 42 points or more in this one and I think Connecticut will get a score or two.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
