While Wake Forest isn’t going to overwhelm anyone with their modest talent base, the demon Deacons are the pick to get the big win and ATS cover in this contest.

More importantly, the favorite in this ACC rivalry has gone 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings while Wake Forest has gone a nearly perfect 10-1 ATS in their last 11 home dates against the Wolfpack. I like wake Forest to cover the chalk by getting the hard-fought double-digit win at home.
