The Appalachian State Mountaineers are 2-1, and while they haven’t been nearly as dominant overall, they do have a 54-7 showing under their belts against the Savannah State Tigers in Week 2.

Wake Forest Demon Deacons
Senior quarterback John Wolford has finally hit his breakout season. Despite throwing for 30 touchdowns and 36 interceptions during his first three years behind center, he’s kicked off 2017 with 500 yards, six TDs and most importantly, zero picks.
This team also has a strong running game. Last week, not only did Wolford achieve 53 yards and a touchdown on the ground, but Arkeem Byrd tallied 120 yards on 19 carries.
So far this season, Wake Forest is not only 3-0 straight up, but also 3-0 against the spread.
The team is 7-1 ATS in its last eight road games dating back to last season.
Appalachian State Mountaineers
Like Wake Forest, Appalachian State has found efficient quarterback play. On the year, Taylor Lamb has tossed for 622 yards, six touchdowns and, like Wolford, zero interceptions.
Also like Wolford, he can be a threat on the ground when he has to be, as evidenced by his nine ground scores last season.
So far in 2017, the Mountaineers are 2-1…but they’re 0-3 against the spread.
In their last 16 home games, they’ve beaten the spread just 3 times (with 12 losses and 1 tie).
This team is just 2-8 ATS in its last 8 overall games.

Appalachian State isn’t a bad team by any means, but they don’t appear to be on the same level as Wake Forest, which has proven it’s solid through three games on both sides of the ball.
