Miami has won two straight and four of its last five coming into tonight. Miami is 17-5 overall, 6-4 in the ACC and 9-8 against the spread.

Bet on Wake Forest vs. Miami

The home team has won the last six meetings in this series, but Wake Forest is 2-0-1 against the spread in the last three encounters. However, Wake has been a mess over the last month, failing to cover in all eight of the losses over this nine game stretch. Their last three road losses have been by at least nine points. Miami has a defense that should be able to lock up this Wake Forest team and cruise to a comfortable win. The public betting is backing Miami at home as well.
