Duke vs. Wake Forest Pick

College Basketball Predictions: Will Duke cover at Wake Forest? 1/23/18

Can No. 4 Duke go on the road and pick up a double-digit win over Wake Forest when the two ACC foes meet up tonight at 9PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Duke is heavily favored on the road, as the Blue Devils are getting odds of -10 points against Wake Forest. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 161 points. Tonight’s game will take place from Lawrence Joel Coliseum in Winston-salem, North Carolina and will air live on the ACC Network.

Duke has won four straight games coming into tonight’s road contest. The Blue Devils are now 17-2 overall, 5-2 in the ACC and 11-6 against the spread. Duke is averaging 92.1 points per game on offense while giving up just 72.8 per contest on defense. Marvin Bagley III is averaging 21.9 points and 11.5 rebounds per game to lead Duke while Grayson Allen is adding 15.1 points and 4.3 assists per contest.

Wake Forest has lost five straight and seven of its last eight coming into today’s game. The Demon Deacons are now just 8-11 overall, 1-6 in the ACC and 6-10-1 against the spread. Wake is averaging 74.5 points per game on offense while giving up 73.2 per contest. Bryant Crawford has been leading Wake Forest this season with 15.9 points and 4.7 assists per game while Keyshawn Woods is adding 13.4 points per contest.

Bet on Duke vs. Wake Forest

Duke has won seven straight meetings with Wake Forest, but the Demon Deacons have covered in three of the last four meetings. While Wake is at home, the Demon Deacons haven’t played well there. They have failed to cover in five straight, two of which were at home. Duke just handled Wake, 89-71, at home 10 days ago. I think the Blue Devils can do enough on the road to cover this spread. Their talent is far superior to what Wake has. The public betting agrees with me and is betting on Duke.
