The Wake Forest Demon Deacons and Florida State Seminoles meet Wednesday in college basketball action at the Donald L. Tucker Center.

The Wake Forest Demon Deacons could use a win after losing eight of their last 10 games. The Wake Forest Demon Deacons are averaging 69 points on 40 percent shooting and allowing 74.1 points on 45.5 percent shooting. Brandon Childress is averaging 15.3 points and 4.1 assists while Jaylen Hoard is averaging 14 points and 8.4 rebounds. Chaundee Brown is the third double-digit scorer and Isaiah Mucius is grabbing 3.6 rebounds. The Wake Forest Demon Deacons are shooting 29.8 percent from beyond the arc and 73.1 percent from the free throw line. The Wake Forest Demon Deacons are allowing 32.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.2 rebounds per game. The Wake Forest Demon Deacons have lost all seven road games this season.

The Florida State Seminoles look for another win to build on their five-game winning streak. The Florida State Seminoles are averaging 77.1 points on 45 percent shooting and allowing 68.6 points on 42 percent shooting. Mfiondu Kabengele is averaging 13.6 points and 5.3 rebounds while Terance Mann is averaging 12.3 points and 2.1 assists. Trent Forrest is dishing four assists and Phil Cofer is grabbing 2.9 rebounds. The Florida State Seminoles are shooting 33.7 percent from beyond the arc and 74.3 percent from the free throw line. The Florida State Seminoles are allowing 33.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.7 rebounds per game. The Florida State Seminoles have won five of their last six home games.

The Demon Deacons are 6-21 ATS in their last 27 vs. Atlantic Coast, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Seminoles are 1-9-1 ATS in their last 11 Wednesday games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Atlantic Coast and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Demon Deacons are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Florida State and 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings. The over is 7-2-1 in Seminoles last 10 home games. The under is 4-1 in Demon Deacons last 5 overall.

The Florida State Seminoles are playing their best ball of the season, which includes holding teams to 40.6 percent shooting and outscoring teams by an average of 10.8 points during their five-game winning streak. The Wake Forest Demon Deacons are a complete mess right now, and it doesn't get much better on the road where they're shooting 36.2 percent from the field and losing by an average of 17 points. With that said, this is a lot of points to lay, and FSU is just 5-7 ATS at home this season and 2-6 ATS as a double-digit favorite. While it's a mismatch on paper, I'll take the points with Wake Forest if forced to pick this ACC contest.

Pick:
Wake Forest +18
