Via SportsBettingDime, here are a few over/unders for NC State heading into 2021. The team win total is the same I’ve seen elsewhere but I hadn’t seen these individual over/unders before:

Over/Under Wins: 6.5
Odds to Win the Conference: +12500
Odds to play in the ACC Championship game: +5500
Heisman odds for Devin Leary: +35000
Zonovan Knight Over/Under Rushing Yards: 992.5
Emeka Emezie Over/Under Receiving Yards: 801.5
Devin Leary Over/Under Passing Yards: 3,177.5
Devin Leary Over/Under Passing TDs: 24.5

That touchdown number is the fifth-highest among ACC quarterbacks, and that passing total puts him in the league’s top half, which seems fair. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him finish in the top five in both categories.

Emezie’s receiving total seems low considering he had 738 receiving yards last year and would have nearly hit 800 with a 13th game, based on his per-game average. Emezie hitting at least like 900 yards if Leary is healthy all year seems like a solid bet to me.

With Bam Knight, the question is whether or not he’ll get enough carries to crack 1,000 yards, since the Pack split touches between Knight and Ricky Person almost 50/50 last season. I don’t think there’s any question that Bam should be getting more than 12 carries per game (that was his 2020 average) this fall while Person’s role is diminished, but we’ll see.
