Wake Forest is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games while the over is 20-7 in their last 27 games following a win.
I’m sticking with Wake Forest here. There’s just nothing about this Georgia Tech team that makes me want to back them against nearly anyone, and that includes a Wake Forest team that gets out and runs and guns offensively. It’s a bit of a bigger number than I’d like, but I don’t see how Georgia Tech keeps themselves in this game. Give me the Demon Deacons laying the points.
