NC State Wolfpack vs Virginia Cavaliers prediction

The Virginia Cavaliers are going to get the benefit of the doubt because they've been the better team this season, and they're the fresher team. The NC State Wolfpack have been hit or miss, and now we expect them to win four games in four days? With that said, NC State has above average talent, so it's not that big of a surprise this run has taken place. Also, NC State beat Virginia at home this season and lost the other game on the road in overtime. Virginia still has scoring issues and could have easily lost to Boston College yesterday. Give me NC State and the points, and I wouldn't be shocked if the Wolfpack won outright.
