Kickoff is set for 7:30 PM and the game can be seen on ESPN’s Thursday Night telecast. Wolfpack bettors have had a field day against Florida State since 2001, as they’re a solid 6-0-1 ATS and 4-3 SU.
Football betting fans that have backed Florida State (4-1, 2-1 ATS) in ’08 have quietly improved to 2-1 against the college football betting line since getting knocked off 12-3 against Wake Forest back on September 20th. They were off last weekend, but will hope to build on the wild 41-39 victory against the Miami Hurricanes two weeks ago.
Even after giving up 39 points to the Canes, the FSU defense still ranks 3rd in the country, allowing just 228.6 yards per game. They also rank in the Top-25 in passing yards allowed (166.2), rushing yards allowed (62.4), and points allowed (15.8).
Almost equally quietly, NC State (2-4, 3-2 ATS) has covered the spread in three of its L/4 games for college football betting fans after opening up its 2008 campaign by getting shut out at South Carolina and narrowly escaping William & Mary.
Though they never led in their game with Boston College, they also weren’t behind the 7.5-point spread on the football betting line for very long. QB Russell Wilson churned out a gutsy game, completing 19 of 33 passes for 218 yards and one passing touchdown to go along with two rushing scores, the last of which tied the game at 31-31 with just 3:33 to go.
Oddsmakers have made NC State 11-point home underdogs on the college football betting line with the ‘total’ is set at 47.5. The Wolfpack have been great in ACC play of late, going 6-2 ATS their L/8, while the Seminoles have been awful going just 3-7-1 ATS in their L/11 games.
Consider adding North Carolina State to your NCAA football betting card to kick off the CFB Week 8 slate.
