College Hoops Preview: Duke vs. Wake Forest (Jan. 28)

College Basketball’s Game of the Year – (1) Duke at (6) Wake Forest

Coach K has Duke where they should be, ranked number one in the nation and on their way to another ACC title. But before the Dookies can claim it, they’ll have to beat teams like the Wake Forest Demon Deacons on the road. The Deacons were ranked number one in the nation before suffering a loss to Virginia Tech. For online betting fans, the loss to VA Tech proved what many of them had been quietly whispering that from an online basketball betting point-of-view, Wake Forest hasn’t been that spectacular. Their record of 8 and 5 against the BetUS online wagering spread is a good one but they haven’t garnered it through mass destruction.

The Duke Blue Devils on the other hand have. They beat Maryland by 41 points in their last game. The Devils are just getting better and better. While their against the spread record is only 10-7-1, there straight-up record is 18 and 1. I expect the Devils to improve their against the spread record as the season wears on.

Here are the BetUS online sportsbook betting odds for this game.

Duke Blue Devils -1 ½ -110 O 149 -110
Wake Forest Demon Deacons +1 ½ -110 U 149 -110

Here are a few online wagering trends that might help us find a good online bet in this game.

The Duke Blue Devils are 1 and 4 against the spread in their last 5 road games following three or more consecutive home games.
The Duke Blue Devils are 6 and 1 against the spread in the last 7 meetings between these two teams.
The Wake Forest Demon Deacons are 5 and 1 against the spread in their last 6 games overall.
The Favorite is 5 and 1 against the spread in the last 6 meetings between these two teams.

What this game comes down to is reality. The reality is that the Duke Blue Devils are a massively talented team capable of shutting down any offense in the nation. Not only that, but they have terrific scorers in key positions on their team.

When a player like Greg Paulus can come off the bench and pour in 17 on any given night, you know that you’re pretty good. Kyle Sigler is a stud. Gerald Henderson is virtually unstoppable.

And they all play defense!

Wake Forest is a terrific team, they might be better than North Carolina this year, but they don’t have what it takes to down the Duke Blue Devils in this game.

Duke vs. Wake Forest Prediction:

I’ll be making an online college basketball bet on the Duke Blue Devils to beat the Wake Forest Demon Deacons and to cover the -1 ½ spread.
