Wake Forest at Notre Dame Prediction
After a 17-20 start on the college football season a 17-7 run, including a Bowling Green -2.5 win at Kent State has pushed our record to 34-27 on the season.
Wake Forest Demon Deacons 5-3 at #3 Notre Dame Fighting Irish 7-1
The Notre Dame Fighting Irish find themselves ranked third in the first set of the College Football Playoff rankings. With four games remaining against teams with winning records, the Irish seem to be in control of their own destiny for a playoff spot.
Notre Dame has been led by it’s rushing game, averaging 318 yards a game on the ground, good for number sixth in the nation. The Wake Forest defense is ranked 88th in the country at stopping the run allowing just under 184 yards per game.
Notre Dame is 3-0 overall and against the spread against ACC teams this season, defeating Boston College, North Carolina and North Carolina State by 29, 23 and 21 points respectively.
In all games this season Notre Dame is 7-1 against the spread, with their only loss coming against Georgia in a 20-19 home defeat.
Wake Forest is 3-1 against the spread as an underdog this season and 4-3 ATS overall. Wake Forest is also an impressive 5-1 in their last six games as a double digit road underdog. The Demon Deacons did however drop their last two road games. On October they lost at Georgia Tech 38-24 as a three point underdog, and 28-14 at Clemson as 21 point underdog.
You can make a case for Wake Forest, but this season feels different for Notre Dame. Each of Notre Dame’s wins this season has come by at least 20 points. I like the Fighting Irish to cover.
My Pick: NOTRE DAME -13
Notre Dame 37 Wake Forest 20
