Wake Forest

The Demon Deacons are 4-1 ATS in their last five Tuesday games. Wake Forest is 1-4 ATS in its last five road games.

Duke

The Blue Devils are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 Tuesday games. The home team is 2-5 ATS in the last seven meetings.

Prediction:

The Blue Devils are top five nationally in both adjusted offensive and defensive efficiency, while the Demon Deacons are 165th offensively and 226th defensively. Wake Forest has lost all but one of its road games this season by double digits and with Duke looking so good at home over the weekend, there is no chance this one stays close. With or without Williamson, look for Duke to blow out the Demon Deacons and cover the big spread.
