Draft Kings’ sportsbook released some college football futures this week and has NC State’s over/under win total set at six, which seems ... pessimistic. Or a good money-making opportunity, I suppose, if you’re the betting type.
Granted, they do have State hitting that over at -139, versus going under at +110, which is to say that the Wolfpack is seen as more likely to exceed six wins. I am slightly biased, but that does seem the more likely scenario to me as well. Even with the challenging schedule this year, it’d be pretty surprising if NC State didn’t at least manage seven wins.
As for the tough games on the schedule: Clemson’s win total is 11.5, UNC’s is 10, and Miami’s is 9.5. The total for the Pack’s big non-conference opponent, Mississippi State is 5.5. That’ll be one of those swing games that dictates just how well the season goes for us this fall, I reckon.
