Chris 'The Bear' Fallica makes pick in Florida State-NC State game
ESPN’s Chris “The Bear” Fallica is picking the Seminoles this week in Raleigh.
Florida State is a 3-point underdog in this matchup, according to the latest betting odds. Fallica said on this week’s episode of Always College Football that he believes in Florida State even after its loss to Wake Forest in Week 5.
“Even though FSU lost [to Wake Forest], I still like them,” Fallica said, adding that he is taking FSU with the points. “I like the way that they’ve battled back this year in a couple situations. Whether it was LSU, whether it was Louisville.”
Fallica is also weary of NC State after its disappointing performance at Clemson last weekend. The Wolfpack have struggled to generate offense in some situations this season.
“Their defense is really good, but they don’t have any difference-makers on the outside or at running back on that offense,” he added. “It’s a very vanilla-type offense. If they had anybody, [the Clemson game] was there for the taking last week.”
NC State has won 2 straight meetings and 4 of the last 5 games in this series.
Kickoff is at 8:00 p.m. ET on Saturday night.
