For the first time in 2021, the Wake Forest Demon Deacons are favorites. The ACC schedule has finally given Wake Forest a brief respite, and the next 3 games feature Miami, Notre Dame, and Boston College—the 3 other teams at the bottom of the ACC. The Deacs have a great opportunity here to pick up their 2nd conference win of the season and gain some momentum for what could potentially turn into a 2-3 game ACC winning streak. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves though, the first order of business is protecting the parquet and taking down the Miami Hurricanes.
