North Carolina State looks for a rare October win

Kelvin Harmon NC State

Over the team's last 12 games played in the month of October, NC State is 2-10 SU and 4-8 ATS. After a win and cover last Saturday at home against Wake Forest, the Wolfpack will try to keep this October on the right track with a win over the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

  • The total has gone UNDER in eight of North Carolina State's last 10 games at home after consecutive wins at home.
  • Notre Dame is 7-1 SU in its last eight games after losing the previous game in a matchup.
  • The total has gone OVER in six of Notre Dame's last seven games.

NC State is just 1-5 SU and ATS in its last six games coming off a win. The Wolfpack are off to a 3-1 SU and ATS start to the 2016 season after ending the 2015 campaign on a 3-6 SU and 2-7 ATS skid.
