Wake Forest vs Duke Prediction
2016 College Football Week 2

The Demon Deacons won ugly but they won against Tulane in a 7-3 thriller. The Duke Blue Devils won bigger but against a much lesser opponent in North Carolina Central 49-6.

Wake Forest offense was horrid with quarterback John Walford throwing for just 79 yards, while leading rusher Kendall Hinton managed a 24 yards. How many times have you seen a team win a game when the quarterback does not throw for over a hundred yards at the same time the top running back is held to less that fifty yards? They won with defense and by not turning the ball over. The offense they face this week will be far better and just playing defense will not be enough to pull out a victory.

Wake Forest vs Duke Pick

Sportsbetting.ag

While both of these ACC teams are coming off wins in their season openers, they could not have looked more different. Duke looked solid against North Carolina Central in a 49-6 win, while Wake edged Tulane 7-3 in a defensive struggle. Duke could score 30 and this Under will still hit, and no Duke won’t score 30.

Pick: Duke -6.5 & under 44
