Duke is 0-6 against the spread in their last six road games. Wake Forest is 2-6 against the spread in their last eight games overall. The over is 9-4 in the last 13 meetings. The road team is 4-1 against the spread in the last five meetings. 

Wake Forest can score, but their defense has also been an issue, and there will be no shortage of scoring in this game. Look for Wake Forest to run up the score, Duke will also score plenty, and the over will cash. In terms of the side, it’s a lean with Duke to keep it close and cover the spread, but the better play is with the total.
