TOM STRYKER’S FREE FOOTBALL SELECTION FRIDAY, OCTOBER 29TH
#122 WAKE FOREST (-16) over Duke at 4 PM EST
Checking in ranked No. 13 in the country with a shiny 7-0 SU record, Wake Forest will continue its winning ways when it hosts visiting Duke. The Blue Devils limp into this contest off three consecutive straight up losses to the Tar Heels, Yellow Jackets, and Cavaliers by the combined score of 117-34 and they are in prime position to get annihilated once against by the Demon Deacons.
Checking in with a high-octane offense that is currently averaging 43.1 points and 469.4 total yards per game, head coach Dave Clawson troops will have no trouble lighting up the scoreboard and moving the chains against a Duke stop unit that has been roasted for an average of 31.6 points and 444.7 total yards per game. This series has gone Wake’s way too with the Demon Deacons winning and covering the last two meetings in 2018 and 2019. Also, inside the friendly confines of Truist Field, Wake Forest has assembled a profitable 12-3 SU and 8-4 ATS record in its last 15 battles. In this run tackling a foe that checks in off a straight up loss, Coach Clawson’s boys’ jet to a money-making 7-0 SU and 5-0 ATS. Finally, college football home favorites priced at -27.5 or less that enter off a SU and ATS road win hold a reliable 189-119-5 ATS mark provided they scored 50 or more points in that victory. Wake fits this simple system perfectly.
Clinging to a dismal 7-19 SU and 8-15-2 ATS record in its last 26 games, Duke certainly hasn’t played its best football lately. When stepping up in class and fighting a foe that holds a team won/loss percentage of .600 or better, the Blue Devils fall to a miserable 0-9 SU and 1-8 ATS and have lost those nine battles by an average of 25.1 points per game. Even worse, when priced as a double-digit underdog and matched up against a foe that enters with confidence off a straight up win, the Dukies have been a poor investment notching a woeful 6-33 SU and 14-24-1 ATS mark in their last 39 games. In this spot fighting a foe that was on the road last, head coach David Cutcliffe’s players fall to a nasty 1-18 SU and 3-15-1 ATS.
With a season-ending schedule that features four capable teams in UNC, NC State, Clemson, and Boston College and three of those battles on the road, the Demon Deacons will make sure they lock up this blowout victory over the Blue Devils. Take Wake Forest. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
