NC State is 4-12 ATS in their last 16 games and 4-16-1 ATS in their last 21 home games. The over is 4-0 in NC State’s last 4 home games. The home team is 5-2-1 ATS in these two teams last 8 head to head meetings.
The big difference in this game is going to be the lack of defense that NC State plays compared to Clemson. Both of these teams average a good amount of points scored, but Clemson is much better on defense. Additionally, Clemson is the better shooting team by a fair margin. I like Clemson on the road.
