Wake has been competitive this season but has not won on the road yet. This looks like a favourable spot.
Syracuse lost last week to Clemson, though they got the cover as huge underdogs.
One thing these teams have in common is that their best games maybe have been losses to Clemson because they didn’t get totally embarrassed.
Wake Forest Demon Deacons
Wake Forest’s loss to the Tigers was to start the season. Next, they lost close to NC State and now they are riding a three-game winning streak.
Last week they were actually pretty impressive in beating Virginia Tech, a team that had been rolling, especially offensively.
It was interesting that they won a low scoring game because defense is not a strong suit of the Demon Deacons. Altough, they have only given up 39 points the last two weeks so maybe they are turning that around.
QB Sam Hartman is playing well and not being asked to do too much. He has only three TD tosses on the season but has not thrown an interception.
Wake Forest just has to play their game and they should get out of upstate New York with a win.
Syracuse hung with Clemson for a half, sort of, last week. They ultimately only lost by 26, about 20 off the projected number.
Things will not be as difficult against other teams for sure but they are still going to be tough if they can’t get better quarterback play. Rex Culpeper only completed 38% of his passes last week with three interceptions.
The defense is not going to bail him out either. They are giving up an average of 480ypg, and that is not just because of the Clemson game.
I suppose Syracuse deserves some credit for last week. For whatever reason, they have stymied Clemson during the Dino Babers era.

Free Week 9 NCAA Football Pick
I know this is just Wake Forest but I really like this line. The Demon Deacons are playing better defense and their offense can be explosive.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Wake Forest -11.5
I think this one could move a couple of points to get closer to 14. As long as it stays under that they are a good bet.
The key for Wake is to just play a clean game. If they can do that they can kind fo just wait for the Orange to implode and make it easy for them.
