Wake Forest is 1-4 against the spread in their last 5 road games vs. a team with a winning home record. The Demon Deacons are 1-6 against the spread in their last 7 road games. Notre Dame is 5-0 against the spread in their last 5 home games. The Fighting Irish are 6-1 against the spread in their last 7 games overall.
Wake Forest has not been very good this year. They dont have a set quarterback and it looks like it is costing them their season. Notre Dame knows that they can not afford a loss, so i expect them to come in and take care of business. Take Notre Dame to cover this big spread at home.
