Thursday Night Winner: NC State/Cincinnati Under

Posted by in College Football Picks on September 16th, 2010 | 5 Comments

Look for NC State to force those turnovers out of Cincinnati in tonight's epic battle.


North Carolina State hosts Cincinnati tonight starting at 7:45 pm. Cincinnati is coming off a 40-7 annihilation of Indiana St. in week two, along with NC State coming off a huge 28-21 road win in Central Florida.

Cincinnati had a very tough time running the ball in week one against Fresno State, giving it 32 times and only gaining 15 yards. They relied heavily on their passing game, which resulted in a 28-14 loss. Then in week two, they learned how to run putting up 263 rushing yards and only passing for half as many yards as they did in week one. I believe in this match-up tonight, Cinci is going to want to start the game off by pounding the ball on the ground, which means a lot of time consumption.

NC State is second in the nation right now in turnover margin at three, not to mention the five they forced out of Central Florida last Saturday night. They have yet to turn the ball over this season.

Don’t Forget: Cincinnati has gone under in five of its last seven non-conference games. NC State likes to stay under on Thursday nights (13 of last 16).

Let’s face it, when you combine defense and running, it usually results in an under.

Play on under (54.5) Winner

    Joey G. Nice call man. This is funny. Brandon texted me yesterday telling me his ticket tonight is NC State vs. Cincinnati under 55. 55 looks safe to me if this game does happen to end 31-24. Good luck with your pick. Although these teams are known of offense, it’s time to take the smart bet with the play on the under.

    Totally agree with the play here on the UNDER. I had this game ending 28-21 NCST, based solely on stats. My gut says Cincinnati finds a way to win this game though. I made the bet yesterday as soon as the total hit the board at 55. The line is currently down to 54 in most places around town.

    Good Luck.
