Pick Details

(492) NC State vs. Kentucky (491) 12:00 PM | Sat, Jan 02 2021
Sport: NCAAF | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Win (1000) - Final Score NCST 21 at UK 23
2.5 NCST (-106) @ pinnacle

Play - NC State (Game 492).

Edges: Wolfpack: 10-3 ATS in bowl games when coming off a SUATS win, including 5-0 ATS versus sub .666 opponents …  Wildcats: Head coach Mark Stoops is 2-6 SUATS off a double-digit AYS win when facing an opponent with a better record … The clincher comes from our powerful database as it notes that college bowl “mission teams” (teams that had a losing record last season receded by three consecutive bowl season prior) are 20-0-1 ATS if they own a .700 or greater record and are facing an opponent that allows 14.8 or more PPG.  With that, we recommend a 10* play on NC State.  Thank you and good luck as always!



What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
