Wake Forest comes into this game with one of the highest scoring offenses in the ACC, but with one of the worst defenses as well. Duke’s offense has moved the ball well all season long and their defense has been decent. I expect this to be a high scoring game with Wake Forest’s defense struggling to get stops. Give me the over here.
