Boston College vs Wake Forest Prediction & Pick

Wake Forest is back at No. 13 in the AP Poll for the first time since October of 2021 and is firing on all cylinders right now. The Demon Deacons rank ninth in the country in points per game (40.6) as well as 42nd in the country in yards per game (427.4). A consistent offense has been the key to their wins.

Getting into a shootout is not what the Eagles want to do. Boston College only averages 282.0 yards per game (No. 118 in FBS) and doesn't pose a threat in any way on the ground (62.4 rushing yards per game). The Eagles simply don't have enough offensive firepower to keep up in this ACC showdown.

Final Score Prediction: Boston College: 17 | Wake Forest: 41

Boston College vs Wake Forest Best Bet

Yes, Wake Forest is an offensive juggernaut and could easily keep their foot on the gas in this game. This total still seems just a bit too high, though. Boston College is averaging a dismal 16.4 points per game this season, so expecting them to score more than 17 points in an ACC matchup is unrealistic.

Keep in mind the under has hit in 10 of the last 11 matchups between Wake Forest and Boston College. The under has also hit in 10 of the Eagles' last 14 games and in six of the Demon Deacons' last nine games overall. A moving clock in the second half of a blowout does not bode well for points.

Bet: Under 61.5 Points (-110)
