ACC play rolls on as the Wake Forest Demon Decons head to South Bend to take on the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame.
The Demon Decons, coming off a 12-point win over Georgia Tech, will look to strike while the iron is hot against a Notre Dame team that has lost four straight games, including one against aforementioned Georgia Tech.
Wake Forest Demon Decons
The Wake Forest Demon Decons can score the ball. No one can deny that, as the Decons rank 29th in the country in points per game. The team’s averaging 81.6 points per game and has posted some impressive scoring performances.
While it was a loss, Wake was able to post 83 against Duke the other night, and the team will look to post a similar number against Notre Dame.
The scoring is led by sophomore John Collins. Collins is nearly averaging a double-double including 17.6 points and 9.6 rebounds per game. Collins is also shooting 60.7% from the floor. Look for him to put up some big numbers on Tuesday.
Guard Bryan Crawford has been great for the team as well. He’s averaging 14.9 points and 5.9 assists per game. His field goal percentage is a decent 43% while his free throw shooting has been wonderful at 81.8%.
For Wake to beat the Irish, Collins and Crawford will need to have big games on both sides of the floor and limit the Irish scorers. If Collins can’t get going on the offensive end, the Demon Decons probably won’t win this game.
Notre Dame Fighting Irish
Notre Dame really has not been able to bounce back after that bad 2-point loss to a considerably less talented Georgia Tech team. The Irish have since lost to Duke by 10 and North Carolina by seven. Notre Dame really needs to get back in the win column and a game against Wake Forest is the perfect time to do so.
The veteran players have to play well in order to beat Wake. This includes the likes of Bonzie Colson and V.J. Beachem, along with Steve Vasturia and Matt Farrell.
Bonzie Colson is having a brilliant season, averaging a double-double with 15.5 points and 10.5 rebounds per game. Despite the four losses, he has been great in all of them, putting up two double-doubles and a 20-point performance against Virginia.
Forward V.J. Beachem is averaging 15 points per game while shooting 44% from the field. His last three games have been great as well, as he’s posted at least 20 points in each of them.
Senior Steve Vasturia has been a clutch shooter. He’s scoring 13.9 points per game and shooting 40% from behind the arc. However, he’s been a non-factor in the last three losses, as he hasn’t even cracked double digits in points.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Wake Forest is 5-2 ATS in the last seven games
- The Total has gone OVER in four of Wake Forest’s last five games
Free Wake Forest Demon Decons vs. Notre Dame Fighting Irish NCAAB Prediction:
It’s been tough to watch Notre Dame over the past few games. The team hasn’t played well against fellow ACC opponents.
With that being said, Wake Forest isn’t a great team and Notre Dame should be able to exploit the Demon Decons’ weaknesses. I like the Irish to get the W.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Notre Dame -7
Despite the recent struggles of the Fighting Irish, the fact remains that the team is much better than Wake Forest. I like Notre Dame to cover the spread here.
