Odds: Wake Forest is favored by 6 points. Over/Under is 157.5 points. Ken Pom projects Wake Forest to win 84-76 (77% win probability).
The Deacons benefited from a number of notable bubble teams (Clemson, Georgia Tech, and Indiana) losing on Tuesday night, but have to take care of business tonight against Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh has played well as of late, as they have won 3 of 4, including an 80-66 victory over Florida State on Saturday.
While Pittsburgh has a lot of size at every position, they are just an average rebounding team and they are also terrible at creating turnovers. Pitt is similar to Wake in that they are strong offensively, but leave a lot to be desired on the defensive end. Ultimately, I'm expecting Wake Forest to pull away towards the end of the game and advance to 7-9 in ACC play.
I'll be here watching during the game. I hope that you'll join me throughout. As always, go Deacs!
