The Clemson Tigers and Wake Forest Demon Deacons face off on Wednesday in a college basketball showdown at the LJVM Coliseum.
The Clesmon Tigers have had a few bumps in the road so far this season, but coming into this game they sit with a 13-5 record overall. Clemson has won three games in a row including their last game against Georgia Tech, a game they scored 74 points in. Georgia Tech on the season is averaging 65.6 points per game while their defense is giving up 63.1 points per game. Clemson on the season is shooting 42.1 percent from the field and 32.3 percent from behind the three point line. Aamir Simms has been the best player for Clemson averaging 13.3 points while shooting 53.9 percent from the field and 35 percent from behind the three point line.
On the other side of this matchup is the Wake Forest Demon Deacons who sit with a 6-11 record overall but they have lost three fights in a row. In the last game against NC State, the defense really struggled giving up 80 points and that led to the defeat. Wake Forest on the season is averaging 69.2 points per game while their defense is giving up 71.4 points per game. Wake Forest is shooting 42.8 percent from the field and 35.1 percent from behind the three point line.

The over is 10-3 in Clemson’s last 13 games against the ACC. The over is 18-5 in Wake Forest’s last 23 home games. The over is 21-7 in Wake Forest’s last 28 games played on Wednesday. The under is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings played between Clemson and Wake Forest.
Look for Clemson’s defense to lock down and that will lead to this game being slower scoring. It wouldn’t be shocking to see Wake Forest finish under 50 points. Back the under to cash.
