Wake Forest is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following an ATS loss. The over is 4-1 in Wake Forest’s last 5 home games. The road team is 4-0 ATS in these two teams last 4 head to head meetings.
Wake Forest comes into this game fighting for a NCAA tournament berth and cannot afford to slip up here. Both teams have struggled in their recent games, but Wake Forest has the much better offense. I am taking the under in this game as Louisville has been playing at a slower pace lately.
