The Wake Forest Demon Deacons will be on the road to take on the Army Black Knights. Kickoff is set for Noon ET on Saturday.
Wake Forest is coming off of a bye week and Army is coming off of a loss.
The Demon Deacons started off as 4 point favorites and that number has gone down to 3. The total has stayed right around 52.5.
Wake Forest Demon Deacons
The #16 team in the nation has been very good this year. They are certainly in the conversation for the best team in the ACC.
The last game this team played was against the Syracuse Orange on October 9th where they won the game 40-37. They did fail to cover, however.
Against the Orange, quarterback Sam Hartman was 19/32 for 330 yards and 3 touchdown passes. He will look to build off of that when going against Army.
The Syracuse defense did a good job against the running game for Wake Forest. As far as receivers go, A.T. Perry and Jaquarii Roberson, both had big days. Perry had 3 receptions for 137 yards and Roberson had 9 catches for 135 yards. I am sure both of those guys will get lots of action against the Black Knights.
The defense has been up and down for them this year. They have struggled the last few weeks. It will be interesting to see how they do against an Army team that likes to really run the ball.
Army Black Knights
Not many people have been talking about them, but Army has quietly had a good season so far. They just do not seem to get a lot of attention nationally.
The Black Knights lost to the Wisconsin Badgers last Saturday by a score of 20-14. They had chances to win it but fell short.
Jabari Lewis did not throw the ball that much last week. He was 5/6 for 87 yards on the day.
In the loss to Wisconsin, running back Tyhier Tyler ran the ball 17 times for 90 yards. I am sure he will get asked to run the ball a lot this week.
For the most part, the defense for this team has been solid. Granted, they have not played anybody all that great, but they have done their job. They will be in for a very big challenge when trying to slow down Wake Forest.

Not many people are giving Army a chance here, but I do think it can be closer than some think.
Even though I feel the Demon Deacons can cover, I am going to lay off the spread and go with them straight up here.
4* Free Week 8 NCAA Betting Pick:
For as good as Army has been this year, they are not on the level of Wake Forest. The Demon Deacons should be able to take care of business if they continue to play as they have been.
I look for Wake Forest to score a good amount of points this year in this one. Although this defense for the Black Knights is disciplined, they have not seen an offense like the Demon Deacons all year long.
The main reason I do not have confidence in backing Army here is that I am not sure how they will score a lot. I do not feel they will be able to put up enough points in order to knock their opponent off.
Give me Wake Forest here.
