LINE: Duke -10.5, o/u: 59.5
POINT TOTAL PICK: Over
The Duke offense has been hit-or-miss, struggling against the strong ACC defenses like Clemson’s, Miami’s and Virginia’s. And too many Blue Devil games have struggled to get off the ground.
The Demon Deacons need this game to get bowl eligible, but the offense is struggling lately to score points, coming up with 27 or fewer in five of the last six games.
How much will Duke care about getting this into a shootout out of some sort?
The Duke O might just be good enough to crank up 40 points or more like it did against North Carolina and Pitt over the last month, but that doesn’t mean Wake Forest will help the cause considering all of its scoring issues.
Now, blow all of that off.
Desperate times will bring out the O, and Wake Forest will do everything possible to make this a bit of a track meet.
It’s going to have to get into the mid-to-high 20s for the over to come through, and considering Duke might just get hot enough to score 40, ask for the aberration.
