Over on the Syracuse side, they’re 4-7 this year. The Orange are 1-5 in their last six games, taking out Duke but falling to NC State, Pitt, Florida State, Boston College and Louisville otherwise. 

In the loss to the Cards, Syracuse QB Tommy Devito had 153 yards and two TDs, and Moe Neal rushed for 163 yards and a score. Jawhar Jordan led the receivers with two catches for 87 yards in that one. 

The Deacons are 3-0-1 ATS versus a team with a losing record and 0-3-1 ATS in their last four road games. Wake is 5-2-1 ATS in their last eight on turf and 4-9-1 ATS in their last 14 after a straight-up win. 

Meanwhile, the Orange are 1-4 ATS in their last five home games and 1-6 ATS in their last seven conference games. Syracuse is 0-4 ATS in their last four on turf and 1-6 ATS in their last seven overall. 

Realistically, Wake didn’t have much of a chance against Virginia Tech or Clemson in those road games, and it showed in the final scores. That said, the Deacons have been pretty solid in their other games—at least competitive—and they’ve put together a solid season and a sneaky-good team. 

As for Syracuse, they’ll put together a pretty coherent effort here and there, but for the most part they’re struggling right now. When they score, they give up more on the other end. When they’re tight on defense, they can’t find the end zone. It’s a lose/lose this year. 

In any case, I can’t think of a lot of reasons not to take the Demon Deacons here, so I’m not going to get fancy.
