NC State Wolfpack vs Miami Hurricanes Prediction & College Football Odds for Week 8

by Corey GheeOctober 21, 2021
  • Miami leads the all-time series 10-5-1.
  • Hurricanes won last year’s meeting, a shootout, 44-41 
  • Wolfpack has won four straight games.

The Miami Hurricanes will host the NC State Wolfpack this weekend for an ACC battle. Miami suffered their second defeat in a row, while NC State picked up their fourth straight win.

The NC State Wolfpack (5-1, 1-1) are off to one of their best starts in school history. The Wolf Pack have opened conference play with three straight wins, including a home victory over Clemson, and they currently sit second in the Atlantic Division. N.C. State took care of Boston College on the road last week, 33-7, and they’ll look to take care of things on the road again this weekend.  

The Miami Hurricanes (2-4, 0-2) have looked overmatched all season. After starting the year with one of the toughest non-conference schedules in the country, the Canes have dropped their first two ACC contests by a combined five points. Miami may be better than their record indicates, but things aren’t looking too good in South Beach.

NC State Wolfpack vs Miami Hurricanes Prediction: Spread

It’s really hard to trust or vouch for the Hurricanes right now, even at home. With starting quarterback D’Eriq King out for the season, they’ve been ineffective offensively and turnover-prone. The Wolfpack have the most balanced offense in the conference, and the experience to win on the road. 

NC State looks like the team to beat in the Atlantic Division, while Miami is looking more and more like the doormats of the ACC. Trust NC State to cover this manageable margin this weekend, and take their spread.

  • Free Prediction: NC State -3.5

NC State Wolfpack vs Miami Hurricanes Prediction: MoneyLine

There’s value in NC State’s Moneyline here, but there may be even more within the battle. The Wolfpack carry a strong offense headed by quarterback Devin Leary, who’s been flawless in his last four starts. 

The redshirt sophomore has thrown for 12 touchdowns to zero interceptions during that span, the Wolfpack has taken the lead into the locker room all four times. That trend may continue in South Beach this weekend, and there’s sneaky value there. Take NC State first half Moneyline.

NC State Wolfpack vs Miami Hurricanes Prediction: Total

Pinning the total on an ACC matchup can be tricky, but both of these schools have managed to score a lot of points over the past three weeks. Miami has struggled with ball security, but in return, they’ve spent more time playing catch up, and contributing to the total in each of their conference losses. NC State has surpassed the 30-point plateau in four of six games, while they put up 27 on a talented Clemson defense.

The over feels like the play here, as both teams will look to stretch the field early.
