Duke Blue Devils
Overall, Duke has played quite well so far. With that said, I do not think they are quite as dominant as some people thought they were.
The Blue Devils got beaten by the Miami Hurricanes on Saturday by a score of 76-74. That was a loss that definitely surprised a lot of people, including the Duke team.
Sure, this squad has faced off with a good amount of easy teams, but they have also knocked off some solid competition. A few examples that come to mind are the wins over Kentucky and Gonzaga. This program may not be the best in the nation, but I do feel they could hang with pretty much anyone in college hoops at the moment.
The loss to Miami was a very back-and-forth game, as one can see by the final score. Ultimately, the Canes did just enough right things to get the win. Even though their opponent was not ranked, I would not call that loss to Miami a bad one because they are a very skilled group.
Wake Forest Demon Deacons
Man, Wake Forest had had a hell of a start to their season. Just because they are unranked does not mean they are not a good team.
Right now, the Demon Deacons have a record of 13-3. They have played some solid teams, but have not faced anyone on the level of the Blue Devils. This game will certainly be a big challenge for them, but I do not think they will shy away from the opportunity.
This squad beat the Syracuse Orange on Saturday by a score of 77-74. It was a good sign to see this crew pull off a win in overtime over a solid opponent.
A lot of different folks contributed to the offensive side of things in the win over the Orange. The leading scorer for Wake Forest was Alondes Williams, who had 25 points and 12 rebounds. Isaiah Mucius also added in 18 points and 3 rebounds.

When these two teams meet in college hoops, it typically makes for an entertaining ball game. I think that will be the case when they collide on Wednesday.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Wake Forest ATS
I really want to see how Duke responds after that tough loss to Miami. Of course, the result is one that they did not want to happen, but they have to put that to the side and focus on the Demon Deacons.
The Blue Devils are the better basketball team, but I am not sold on them just rolling in this game. Wake Forest is a good team and they will have an advantage playing at home. They definitely have the talent to compete with one of the best teams in the nation, especially on the offensive side of the ball.
Duke has been good against the spread as a whole, but that has not been the case when they are on the road. I can those trends keeping on Wednesday night.
I like Wake Forest getting the 4.5 points at home in this one.
