North Carolina State at Clemson 2010 College Football Picks: For Clemson (4-4, 2-3 ACC) to climb back into the ACC Atlantic Division race, they must find a way to defeat the No. 23 ranked North Carolina State Wolfpack (6-2, 3-1) when the football teams play at Clemson Memorial Stadium today (Noon ET, ACC Network).
Clemson is listed as a 4-chalk favorite on the BetUS.com week-10 college board versus NC State with a 51 total. Wolfpack backers are getting +150 odds on the BetUS moneyline while Clemson is giving -170.
NC State is one of three teams sharing the Atlantic Division lead with only one conference loss while Clemson has some making up to do with three conference losses. A loss today would not only put the Tigers below the .500 mark, but kill any chances they have of making it to the ACC Championship game in December.
The Wolfpack are coming off a big 28-24 win over then Atlantic Division leader Florida State in a nationally televised (ESPN) Thursday night game on Oct. 28. The Wolfpack covered the point spread in that game as a +4 home underdog.
Clemson, losers in four of its last six games, is coming off a 10-16 conference road loss at Boston College. The Tigers were favored by -7 in that game. From this stand point, it appears the Wolfpack and Tigers are heading in different directions.
Reno Gold's pick: The Wolfpack have shown some Jekyl-Hyde tendencies this season by pulling off big wins but by the same token, losing where they shouldn't, versus East Carolina for example. Regardless, the Wolfpack should handle the struggling Tigers on the road as a +4 underdog.
