Degenerates (Still) Love The Pack

September 1, 2009
Continuing a trend from last season, the betting public is a big fan of Tom O’Brien and the Wolfpack

1: North Carolina State Wolfpack (9-2-1 ATS, 6-7 SU in 2008) The Wolfpack may have the best young quarterback that you’ve never heard of in sophomore QB Russell Wilson. Wilson’s yardage and completion percentage weren’t impressive last season, but he took care of the football. His 17/1 TD/INT ratio was the best in the country, and he has the longest streak of passes without throwing an INT in the land as well. HC Tom O’Brien is hoping for big things out of his squad right from the get go this year.

Up Next: Home vs. South Carolina

Since the public’s betting habits dictate the spread, winning against the spread is typically an indicator your team is generally underrated. Conversely, losing against the spread typically indicates a team that’s overrated. Hence Clemson’s spot at #12 in the ACC last year at 4-7 ATS despite a 7-6 mark straight-up.
