The Wake Forest Demon Deacons and Pitt Panthers face off on Saturday in the ACC Championship game at the Bank of America Stadium. The last time these two teams faced off was in 2018.
The Pitt Panthers come into this game with a 10-2 record and they have gone 9-3 against the spread. Pitt’s defense has had issues at times, but their offense has been elite, something that hasn’t always been the case with this team. Pitt is averaging 42.8 points while their defense is giving up 23.2 points per game. Quarterback Kenny Pickett has been a star for Pittsburgh throwing for 4,066 yards, 40 touchdowns, and seven interceptions. There are four different running backs that have rushed for over 460 yards.
On the other side of this matchup is the Wake Forest Demon Deacons who also sit with a 10-2 record and they have gone 6-6 against the spread. Wake Forest is having one of the best seasons in program history, and the biggest reason has been the offense. Wake Forest is averaging 42.9 points while their defense is giving up 29.1 points per game. Two games ago against Clemson, Wake Forest lost but they bounced back in their last game beating Georgia Tech 41-10. The Demon Deacons are averaging 42.9 points while their defense is giving up 29.1 points per game. Quarterback Sam Hartman has thrown for 3,711 yards, 34 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions.
Pitt is 7-2 against the spread in their last nine conference games. Wake Forest is 1-4 against the spread in their last five games in December. The over is 15-5 in Pitt’s last 20 games overall. The over is 5-1 in Wake Forest’s last six games on grass. The over is 7-2 in Wake Forest’s last conference games.
These are two elite offenses and there is going to be no shortage of scoring in this game. Wake Forest especially is going to run up the score, and their defense is going to have no chance to keep this game close. Look for this game to be a shootout, and the over is going to cash with ease.
