The over is 27-10 in NC State’s last 37 road games. The under is 20-6 in the last 26 meetings played between the two teams.

Look for Virginia to really try to keep the pace slow and that is going to lead to this game being low scoring. There isn’t a strong play either way on the side, but the under is going to cash with ease.
