Seminoles upset Cardinals

Florida State earned a 78-65 victory Saturday at Louisville to improve to 13-2 overall and 3-1 in the Atlantic Coast Conference. The Seminoles led 39-32 at halftime and continued to pull away after the break. M.J. Walker led the way with 23 points off the bench on 9-of-13 shooting including 5-of-7 from 3-point distance. He also dished out three assists. Trent Forrest contributed 20 points, five dimes, three rebounds and two steals. Devin Vassell added 14 points, six boards and three assists. 

Demon Deacons win third straight

Wake Forest secured a 69-65 win Saturday at Pittsburgh to move to 8-5 overall and 1-2 in the ACC. The Demon Deacons outscored the Panthers 42-35 in the second half after trailing by three at halftime. Ismael Massoud led Wake Forest with 14 points on 4-of-8 shooting including 3-of-6 from 3-point range plus 3-of-5 at the charity stripe. He also pulled down three rebounds. Torry Johnson accounted for 12 points in 25 minutes of action off the bench. Chaundee Brown added 10 points and seven boards. 

College Basketball Betting Trends

Florida State

The Seminoles are 2-9 ATS in their last 11 Wednesday games. The road team is 0-4 ATS in the last four meetings.

Wake Forest

The underdog is 3-9 ATS in the last 12 meetings. Wake Forest is 5-2 ATS in its last seven games as an underdog.


A second straight road game following such a big win could provide for a letdown spot for FSU against a Demon Deacons team playing some of their best basketball as of late. Wake Forest is an improving offensive team and its confidence is growing. A much worse Demon Deacons team lost by eight at home versus the Seminoles last year, so betting on it to do better this season in the matchup seems like smart money.
