Wake Forest vs. Xavier Prediction

Saturday College Basketball Wake Forest vs. Xavier Predictions 12/17/16

Will tonight's matchup between Wake Forest and Xavier go over the total for bettors at 8:00PM ET?

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Musketeers are 10-point home favorites over the Demon Deacons after opening as a 9-point favorite. The total, meanwhile, hit the board at 154.5 and that's where the number currently sits at the majority of online and Vegas sports books.

Bet Tonight's College Hoops Action

WAKE FOREST KEY TRENDS: The Demon Deacons are 5-2-1 against the spread in their last eight road games and have fared well as an underdog, going 9-4-2 against the number in their last 15 games as a road dog. That said, they're 1-4-1 at the betting window in their last six games played on Saturday, are 3-12 against the number in their last 15 games coming off a win, and are winless at 0-4 against the spread in their last four games when playing Big East opponents.

XAVIER KEY TRENDS: The Musketeers are 4-1 against the spread in their last five home games, are 4-1 at the betting window in their last five games coming off a win, and are 4-1 against the number in their last five games as a home favorite. They have also fared very well at the window in non-conference play, covering in 14 of their last 19 non-conference games.

OUR PREDICTION: The over is 5-2-1 in the Demon Deacons' last eight games overall and has hit in four of their last five games when they're an underdog. The over has also cashed in 12 of the Musketeers' last 16 home games, is 11-4 in their last 15 games when they're a home favorite, and is 13-5 in Xavier's last 18 games coming off a win. While the total is higher for this game than in any of Xavier's contests over the last month, the over has cashed in three of the Musketeers' last four games and I like it to cash again tonight.
