Duke Wake Forest Betting Tips – Wake Forest Gets A Second Crack At Duke

Posted by Washington Tucker on 1/28/2013 6:12:01 PM

The Wake Forest Demon Deacons just knocked off the North Carolina State Wolfpack. They will now try to beat an even more formidable foe, the Duke Blue Devils.

Why Duke Will Win

Even mma betting experts know that the Blue Devils, despite the issues they've faced of late, still possess one of the best resumes in the country and are among the biggest threats to win the national title when March comes around. Mason Plumlee and Seth Curry likely will represent the two best players on the floor when the teams tip off on Wednesday. In the last meeting between these teams, Plumlee went for a double-double with 13 points and 12 rebounds while Curry dropped 22 points. Wake Forest had no answer for the duo all night. Duke will look to push the game into the 70s or 80s, which would go a long way toward helping its chances. Wake Forest doesn’t have the depth the Blue Devils have if these teams get into a shootout.

Coming off a blowout victory over Maryland on Saturday, the Blue Devils appear to have rubbed off the stench of the team’s one-sided loss to Miami and are primed to get back into contention in the ACC. In order for that to become reality, the Blue Devils must take care of business against a Wake Forest team that shouldn’t be much of a challenge. The Demon Deacons have to get better on defense, where they surrender nearly 70 points a game. One can begin to see where Wake Forest’s 10-9 record comes from.

Why Wake Forest Will Win

No bet on this game should ignore the reality that Duke is showing signs of slippage that, while slight, are still real. Football betting experts with little college basketball knowledge need to be informed that Duke could be off balance in this game, operating well below the full measure of its strengths.

To start, there are a couple keys going in Wake Forest’s favor in hopes of pulling off the upset. For one thing, Ryan Kelly had a monster game the last time out against Wake Forest, and he’ll be out of the lineup due to an injury suffered earlier in the month. Secondly Duke has yet to win a true road game this season. Take away a couple neutral court wins (albeit very good ones), and the Blue Devils are 0-2 on the road. While it may not be the biggest sample size, it does show an issue at work. On top of that, Wake Forest has wins over North Carolina State and Virginia at home thus far on the season. Wake Forest will be counting on the combo of Travis McKie and C.J Harris to continue carrying the load for a team that is 86th in the country in scoring.

Who Will Win

This is going to be a romp. Shorthanded or not, Duke is a much better basketball team than Wake Forest. Add in the blowout loss to Miami, which Coach K will likely not let his team forget about for a while, and the Blue Devils seem like an obvious pick here.
