NC State Wolfpack vs Pittsburgh Panthers prediction

The NC State Wolfpack have fallen off a cliff recently, and I don't expect things to turn around on the road. Don't look now, but the Pittsburgh Panthers have caught fire in ACC play and already beat NC State a month ago on the road. Pittsburgh is also 8-1-1 ATS in its last 10 games and now 18-11-1 ATS on the season. It feels like NC State is a team counting down the days until the offseason as it just can't finish games. I'll ride the hot hand and lay the points with Pitt at home.
