North Carolina vs Wake Forest Prediction & Pick
Bettors are still going to line up and bet the over in this contest despite a huge over/under. North Carolina has won the last two meetings between these programs by scores of 59-53 and 58-55.
The Tar Heels remain unbeaten in ACC play despite sporting the league's worst defense, allowing 31 points per game, 457 yards per game (6.2 yards per play) and 37 touchdowns. Of course, these are the ACC's top two scoring offenses as well, with both averaging over 35 points and 400 yards per game.
UNC freshman QB Drake Maye has passed for nearly 3,000 yards with a 71% completion rate and a 31:3 TD/INT ratio. Maye also leads the Tar Heels in rushing with more than 500 yards and 4 touchdowns. Meanwhile, Wake Forest QB Sam Hartman has struggled lately with 3 picks in each of his last two games.
Both teams have a very balanced run/pass play selection and figure to move the ball with ease, but we like the Demon Deacons to bounce back at home.
Final Score Prediction: Wake Forest: 42 | North Carolina: 35
