Duke Blue Devils vs Wake Forest Demon Deacons 1/12/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The #8 Duke Blue Devils of the Atlantic Coast Conference will go against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons of the Atlantic Coast Conference in NCAAB action in Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum Winston-Salem, NC, on Wednesday, January 12, 2022, at 7:00 PM (EST).

 

Coach Mike Krzyzewski and the Duke Blue Devils are on track for another 20-win season and a top NCAA tournament seed with a 12-2 record. This year, on the other hand, is unlike any other for the Blue Devils. Krzyzewski is in his 42nd and last season at Duke, and there is increasing support for a fitting farewell for the NCAA’s all-time greatest coach.

 

This season, Duke was momentarily ranked #1 before being stunned on the road by Ohio State. After climbing back to #2 this week, the Blue Devils were defeated 76-74 at home by Miami on Saturday.

 

The Blue Devils are 0-1 on the road this season and will face Wake Forest. The rest of Duke’s games were played at neutral venues. So far, Duke played a very light schedule, with only three matches against top 25 teams.

 

Duke’s defense is keeping opponents to 41% shooting and 91 made three-point field goals. Duke is generating just under 10 turnovers per game while forcing 14 per game, proving that Saturday’s game was an exception. In the first half of the season, Duke outscored its opponents by a substantial margin.

 

  • The University of Duke Blue Devils is 4-2 ATS in their last 6 matches.
  • Duke is 6-1 SU in their last 7 matches on the road against Wake Forest.
  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Duke’s last 5 matches in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Duke Blue Devils vs Wake Forest Demon Deacons Predictions 1/12/2022

 

Wake Forest is a surprise 13-3 into this crucial meeting with long-time foe Duke. Despite low pre-season anticipation among basketball analysts, the Demon Deacons continue to win despite remaining unrecognized.

 

Wake Forest stays outside of the Top 25 teams in college basketball despite a 10-0 home record. With a 77-74 overtime victory over Syracuse on Saturday, the Demon Deacons maintained their perfect home record.

 

Wake Forest is almost as high-scoring as Duke, posting 80 points per game, 11 points higher than their opponents. The Demon Deacons shot 48 percent per game while allowing opponents to shoot only 41 percent. Wake Forest, like Duke, is a squad that gets off to a quick start. In the first half of matches this season, Wake outscores its rivals by an average of 38-30.

 

  • The University of Wake Forest Demon Deacons is 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 4 of Wake Forest’s last 5 matches against Duke.
  • Wake Forest is 3-8-1 ATS in their last 12 matches in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

#8 Duke Blue Devils vs Wake Forest Demon Deacons. The NCAAB pick for this game is the #8 Duke Blue Devils. Wake Forest handed the ball over 21 times in their sole game against a Top 25 opponent this season, LSU. In addition, Wake let the Tigers shoot 46 percent from the field in a 75-61 loss.

 

I believe Duke will be too much for a Wake Forest squad that faced few strong opponents so far this season. Duke will force turnovers, which they will convert into fast-break points. Wake Forest boasts a 10-0 home record this season, but that streak will come to an end today. The #8 Duke Blue Devils will win but miss to cover the ATS to a predicted score of 79-77.
