Louisville vs North Carolina State Free Pick

Lamar Jackson led Louisville to rout of NC State in 2016Week 6 of the college football season kicks off with an ACC battle between ranked teams on Thursday when the No. 17 ranked Louisville Cardinals visit the No. 24 ranked North Carolina State Wolfpack. The current line on top sportsbooks has Louisville favored by 3.5 points with the over/under point total on 67.

Entering this game, Louisville on the season is 4-1 straight up and 1-4 against the spread. On the road, the Cardinals are 1-0 SU and ATS. North Carolina State on the season is 4-1 SU and 1-4 ATS. At home, the Wolfpack is 3-0 SU and 0-3 ATS.

North Carolina State proved they were a solid team with their defeat of Florida State on the road when the Seminoles were ranked No. 11 in the nation. The Wolfpack has another opportunity to knock off another ranked team when it hosts Louisville on Thursday.

NC State can win its fifth straight after an opening season loss, but will need to find a way to contain Louisvilleā€™s dual-threat quarterback Lamar Jackson. Last season, Jackson led the Cardinals to a 54-13 rout of NC State.

Louisville over its last two weeks has outscored two inferior opponents 97-13 in Kent State and Murray State following its big loss to Clemson 47-21 on September 16.

The Cardinals have won six of the last seven head to head meetings against the Wolfpack, including three straight since joining the ACC.

Jackson is the reigning Heisman Trophy holder and needs 13 total yards to reach 10,000 for his career. He rushed for 100 yards for the 16th ttime last week and set a school record for scoring at 554 for his career. Wide receiver Dez Fitzpatrick caught two Jackson passes for touchdowns last week and has 6 touchdowns on just 16 receptions.

Wolfpack quarterback Ryan Finley has the longest active passing streak with no interceptions at 257 passes and ranks No. 23 in the country in passing yardage per game at 280.5 and No. 9 in completion percentage at 71.9.

North Carolina State has not thrown an interception or turned the ball over on a fumble during its current four-game winning streak, and leads the ACC with a turnover margin of plus-6.

Louisville is 1-8 ATS in its last 9 games played.

North Carolina State is 0-5 ATS in its last 5 games played at home.

With this free pick, we like Louisville to cover.
