Will Wake Forest strike early?

Wake Forest will strike early and shouldn’t have too many problems from there.


Money line

Wake Forest (-5000) will cost you $100 for every $2 won, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that I’m steering you to the spread instead. While Wake is fully expected to win this game, over the long haul, betting huge favorites on the money line is a losing proposition. Eventually, you’ll get smacked hard. It’s just not worth the risk.


Against the spread

Play WAKE FOREST -31.5 (-103) laying the big points. Old Dominion last played Nov. 30, 2019. The Demon Deacons haven’t won a game since Aug. 31, 2019, more than two calendar years. This is going to be an ugly game with the home team routing the Conference USA visitors.
