Duke faces Wake Forest on Wednesday, January 12th, 2022 at Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum for a college basketball ACC matchup. 

Duke is coming off a stunning upset loss to Miami 76-74 at home in its last game on January 8th. That loss snapped a five-game win streak for Duke and the Blue Devils are now ranked 8th in the nation. Duke is 12-2 overall this season and 2-1 in conference play, as well as 7-5-2 against the spread. Duke will look for its first road win of the season as the Blue Devils have only played one road game this season (at Ohio State 71-66). Duke's leading scorer so far this season has been F Paolo Banchero, who has scored 17.3 points per game and has earned 7.5 rebounds per game as well. F Wendell Moore Jr leads the team in assists per game with 4.9. Duke as a team has scored 83.3 points per game and has shot the ball at a 48.5% clip from the field. Duke has also allowed 64.7 points per game to its opponents as well. 

Wake Forest is coming off a 77-74 win over Syracuse in overtime in its last game at home on January 8th. Wake Forest has now won back-to-back conference games and has won three of its last five games as well. Wake Forest is now 13-3 overall and 3-2 in ACC play and the Demon Deacons are 9-7-0 against the spread as well. Wake Forest has now lost a home game all season, owning a 10-0 home record. Wake Forest's leading scorer so far this season has been G Alondes Williams, who has scored 20.4 points per game for the Demon Deacons. Williams also leads the team in rebounds per game (6.7) and assists per game as well (5.1). Wake Forest as a team has scored 80.0 points per game and has shot the ball at a 47.8% clip from the field. Wake Forest has also allowed 68.6 points per game to its opponents as well.

Duke is a 4.5-point favorite and the total is set at 152. Like I mentioned before, Wake Forest is a tough team to face at home and Duke has yet to be tested on the road other than its loss to Ohio State. I think Wake Forest covers this spread at the minimum, but I would not be shocked to see another big upset. I will take the points with Wake Forest here.
