Week 3 College Football Game Preview between the Wake Forest Demon Deacons vs NC State Wolfpack.

This game is set is kickoff at 8pm et at the Carter-Finley Stadium in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Now let’s get into this game where the College Football oddsmakers currently have NC State as -2 point favorites and the over/under at 52.5 points. The betting public has 68% of their money on Wake Forest as the road underdogs.

These two teams last met in November 2019 where the Demon Deacons at home dominated the Wolfpack both offensively and defensively, taking the 44-10 victory.

Wake Forest comes into this game off a 37-13 home opener loss to one of the best teams in the country, the Clemson Tigers. Clemson controlled the line and was able to hold Wake Forest to just 37 total yards on the ground on 34 carries. NC State will come in with the same type of game plan of stopping the run first and forcing Wake Forest’s Quarterback Sam Hartman to throw the ball. The Deacons finished 15th in the country in yards per game last season, but 9 key players have been replaced and last week they faced one of the top defenses in the country, so we are yet to see what they can really do offensively verse a subpar team. Wake Forest is 1-5 against the spread in their last 6 games when playing on the road against NC State and the total has gone under in 9 of the Demon Deacons’ last 12 games.

NC State comes into their opening game with a new look offense lead by their newly hired offensive coordinator Tim Beck. In 2019, the Wolfpack had one of the worst offenses in the ACC and ranked 112th in the nation, only averaging 20.4 points per game. NC State is expecting sophomore Quarterback Devin Leary to step up his play big time after completing just 48% of his passes across five starts last season. They’ll be relying on their three-man rushing attack led by Zonovan Knight, but they’ll face a tough challenge going up against these rugged Wake Forest linebackers. NC State is 0-6 against the spread in their last 6 games against an opponent in the ACC and the total has gone over in 4 of the Wolfpacks last 6 games.

The best opportunity to make money in this Wake Forest vs NC State game is to buy a point and roll with Wake Forest +3 points at the -135 price.
