Odds: Wake Forest is favored by 16 points. Over/Under is 151.5 points. Ken Pom likes Wake Forest to win 82-68 (89% win probability).
The Wake Forest Demon Deacons return home to North Carolina a three-game tournament in the Charleston Classic, in which the Deacs went 2-1. Wake Forest is 3-1 all time against Coastal Carolina, and beat them 83-77 last season.
Wake Forest should be able to win this game based on superior offensive ability, but the Deacs will also have a big size advantage inside. Coastal does not have a rotation player taller than 6'8", but they are above average at offensive rebounding, so Wake is going to need to box out and finish defensive possessions.
I expect Wake to come out strong and win this one comfortably. I want to see great defensive intensity and crisp movement on offense.
As always, go Deacs!
