Wake Forest Demon Deacons vs Duke Blue Devils prediction

The Duke Blue Devils obviously should be favored as they're the more talented team, and they've owned Wake Forest with wins in 9 of the last 10 meetings. However, Wake Forest gets up for these games and while it doesn't have much success SU, the Demon Deacons have covered 5 of the last 7 meetings. This is still an in-state rivalry, and the Demon Deacons have the offensive talent to hang around this year. I'll grab the points with Wake Forest.
