The Syracuse football team will have their biggest challenge of the season this week in a home matchup against the NC State Wolfpack. Syracuse had a bye week last weekend, so they had extra time to prepare for this game, while NC State is coming off a 19-17 home win over Florida State. They trailed 17-3 at the half but used a second-half comeback to escape with a victory.

The win total for Syracuse was 4.5 coming into the season, and they’ve already cashed the over through five weeks. Wins over Wagner and UConn were expected, but the Orange dominated Louisville 31-7 in their season opener, came from behind against Purdue and won an ugly conference matchup against Virginia. Head coach Dino Babers has his team motivated, and we anticipate their defense will be the difference Saturday afternoon.
NC State’s only loss was 30-20 at Clemson, but they’re just 2-4 ATS this season, which shows they’ve underperformed based on betting odds. Additionally, the biggest news surrounding NC State’s game this past weekend was the loss of QB Devin Leary to an arm injury. The ACC preseason player of the year’s status is currently up in the air for Saturday, and although X-rays showed no significant injury, the QB wore a sling on his right arm after returning to the sideline in the second half against Florida State.
Syracuse’s momentum and Leary not playing at 100% even if he does start lead us to our Syracuse football vs. NC State prediction of the Orange -3 with -115 odds at FanDuel Sportsbook.
