The Wake Forest Demon Deacons and Louisville Cardinals face off on Wednesday in a college basketball showdown at the KFC Yum! Center. When these two teams last faced off in January it was Louisville that won 77-65. 

Wake Forest comes into this game with an 11-1 record overall and they have gone 7-5 against the spread. The over has also hit in eight of the 12 games so far this year. In the last game against Charlotte, it was a close battle, but Wake Forest was able to score 82 points and that was enough to come away with the win. The Demon Deacons are averaging 81.2 points while their defense is giving up 67.1 points per game. Alondes Williams has been the best player for Wake Forest averaging 21 points while shooting 58 percent from the field. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Louisville Cardinals who sit with a 7-4 record and they have gone 5-6 against the spread. In the last game against Western Kentucky, the defense really struggled giving up 82 points and that led to the defeat. Louisville is averaging 70.8 points while their defense is giving up 65.9 points per game. Guard Noah Locke has been the top player for Louisville averaging 10.5 points while shooting 33.1 percent from the field and 31.3 percent from behind the three point line. Malik Wiliams, the second-leading scorer is dealing with COVD and he might be out of this game.

The over is 5-1 in the Cardinals last 6 home games vs. a team with a winning road record. The under is 4-0-1 in Demon Deacons last 5 games as a road underdog of 0.5-6.5.

Wake Forest hasn’t played the most difficult schedule, but this looks to be a down year for Louisville and they are going to struggle to get the job done in this game. Wake Forest is going to run up the score in this game, and although I think Louisville will win the game, this is too many points. Back Wake Forest against the spread.
