The Florida State Seminoles are on the road for an ACC matchup with the Wake Forest Demon Deacons.  Florida State is 3-3 on the season, having just lost at Clemson. The Seminoles are 2-2 in ACC play.  Wake Forest comes into this contest with a 5-1 record and a 1-1 record in ACC play. The Demon Deacons saw their 5 game win streak come to an end this past Saturday.  In a high scoring shootout, the Demon Deacons came out on the losing end of a 62-59 battle with the Louisville Cardinals.

Betting Trends since 2018:

Florida State is 6-11-1 ATS.

Florida State is 1-5-1 ATS as an away.

The over is 6-2 when Florida State is an underdog.   

Wake Forest is 3-8 ATS as a home team.

WakeForest is 4-2 ATS after a loss.

The over is 7-4 when Wake Forest is the home team.


Neither team has been very good ATS over the last year and a half.  Wake Forest is coming off a heartbreaking loss to Louisville and I’m sure the Demon Deacons are itching to get back out there.  When you look at this season, Wake Forest has been better than Florida State record wise. However, I think the Seminoles have had the tougher schedule up to this point.  The Seminoles also have a win over Louisville. Florida State covers the spread and outright wins 34-31.
