The Florida State Seminoles hit the road Thursday to take on the Wake Forest Demon Deacons and Larry Cook says that the Demon Deacons will cover the spread. Oddmakers from online sportsbook Bodog opened the line at Florida State –1, but the line has since risen to Florida State –1.5.

Cook writes: Wake Forest has won both meetings with Florida State this season in dominant fashion. The Seminoles match up very well with this squad and a season sweep is on the way Wednesday. There is no reason the Demon Deacons should be the underdog here. Wake Forest held the Seminoles to 38% and 35.7% shooting in each meeting. Wake shot a blistering 56% from the field in a 78-70 road win over FSU. It’s the Seminoles lack of defense that will kill them yet again this afternoon. Wake Forest is 8-2 ATS when playing against a team with a winning record after 15 or more games this season. Florida State is 2-12 ATS after successfully covering the spread in 2 or more consecutive games over the last 3 seasons. Bet Wake Forest in the ACC Tournament.
