Wake Forest Coming off Much-Needed Win

Wake Forest snapped a three-game losing streak in Week 12 at home against Syracuse with a 45-35 victory. It was also the first time in more than a month that Wake Forest covered a spread.

After starting the season against weaker opponents, the Demon Deacons were 6-1 ATS heading into Louisville as 3-point favorites. They lost by 27. In the next game, Wake Forest lost again as favorites, this time to NC State. It was the same story in Week 11 at home against UNC.

Now, entering week 13, Wake Forest is 1-2 ATS as a road favorite and 0-2 ATS in their last two games away from home.

Duke Looks to Bounce Back

The Duke Blue Devils handed bettors a classic “bad beat” in Week 12 when they scored on 4th and 18 on the 19-yard line with less than a minute to play to cover against Pitt. The score didn’t affect the game’s outcome but crushed Pitt’s bettors.

The loss also snapped Duke’s three-game winning streak.

Looking at their record against the spread, there is much to like about the Blue Devils at +3½.

Duke is on a two-game ATS win streak and has covered four of their last five games. Duke hasn’t lost a game against the spread all season after a loss or as a home underdog.

Wake Forest vs Duke Picks & Prediction

Duke has the better ATS numbers; if we go by that, they are a good bet to cover +3½. But Duke is also coming off a disappointing loss to Pitt last week and covered on a very unlikely late TD.

Both teams look like they are out of gas heading into the final week of the regular season. Duke used the last of their mojo to beat Virginia Tech, and Wake Forest was spared a four-game losing streak thanks to a Syracuse team who is 0-5 in the last month.

With that in mind, I like the UNDER in this game. Neither team has anything to play for other than pride. Both have bowl eligibility, and neither can win their respective divisions.

The Wake Forest Demon Deacons are listed at -165 in our Vegas NCAAF lines. This means that if you wager $100 on Wake Forest, you have a chance to win $61. The Duke Blue Devils are +145, offering a chance to win $145 on a $100 wager.

The implied probability attached to the betting lines gives Wake Forest a 62.26% chance to win, with Duke at 40.82%.
