NC State opens as an 8-point favorite against Georgia Tech

NC State has a chance this weekend to finish off an eight-win season, which is still something I occasionally struggle to wrap my head around, but here we are. The Wolfpack is an early eight-point favorite against Georgia Tech, though if the Pack continues to challenge itself with lots of silly mistakes, who knows how this’ll go.

(A sign of the times: while State is wrapping up its season, Georgia Tech still has two more games after this week.)

The Yellow Jackets are just 3-5 on the season, though they did demolish Duke over the weekend, 56-33. Georgia Tech also has wins over Florida State and Louisville, but all five of its losses have been by at least 17 points, including a 37-20 defeat at Syracuse.

NC State’s passing attack should find success against a Tech defense that’s allowed 21 touchdowns through the air while picking off just five passes.
