Shane’s Free Pick
Wake Forest has value as an underdog here. This Demon Deacons offense is averaging 77.3 points per game and they are going to have no issue running up the score again in this game. Pitt in the last game only managed 64 points per game and their offense isn’t going to be enough to get the job done. Back Wake Forest on the money line. If you want to play it safe and take them getting the points I don't hate it, but there is so much value with the money line.
