Daytime Dominator - Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach CFB Rotation #119 Saturday 8* Duke Blue Devils (+) @ NC State Wolfpack @ 3:30 ET - The Blue Devils are off another game marred by turnovers. Yet Duke still won that game by two touchdowns and had a yardage edge of more than 350 yards. I like those kind of numbers as they now get involved in a rivalry game that has seen the dog cover 7 of the last 9. The home team has covered only twice in the last ten meetings! Overall, coach Dave Doeren has led NC State to just 5 covers in their last 14 games as a home favorite in ACC action. The Wolfpack have done a great job of eliminated pressure to their quarterback so far this season but now face a Blue Devils team that already has amassed 18 sacks this season. NC State is 3-1 both straight up and against the spread this season but they have been the beneficiary of bounces for sure and two of their three wins have come by three or less points. I suspect that this one will too and an outright upset from the road dog would certainly not be a complete surprise. Additionally, NC State has North Carolina on deck and that is their biggest rival. The Blue Devils have a bye on deck. From a situational standpoint, this one is excellent and I won't hesitate to back the road dog here. 8* DUKE
