The under is 5-2 in North Carolina’s last 7 games. The road team is 7-2 ATS in these two teams last 9 head to head meetings.
North Carolina already has a spot in the ACC Championship game locked up, but will try to bounce back after a bad loss against Georgia Tech last week. NC State has lost two games in a row and injuries at the quarterback position have made the end of this season very difficult. North Carolina has one of the best offenses in all of football and I think they will get back on the right track here. I like North Carolina to win by a touchdown.
