Pittsburgh Panthers vs Wake Forest Demon Deacons 2/2/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Pittsburgh Panthers will meet with the Wake Forest Demon Deacons in an Atlantic Coast Conference clash in Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum, Winston Salem, NC, on Wednesday, February 2, 2022, at 7:00 PM (EST).

 

On Wednesday night, the Pittsburgh Panthers head to Wake Forest to continue their losing season. The club dropped three of its last four games, falling to 8-13 overall and 3-7 in conference play. Their most recent setback came at the hands of Boston College, who completed a season sweep of the Eagles with a 69-56 victory.

 

After the defeat to Boston College, Pittsburgh’s point difference plummeted to -3.6 for the season. The Panthers are scoring just 61.5 points per game this season and shooting just 41% from the field.

 

The club’s interior play is its strongest suit, with the team generating 15 free throws per game and outrebounding opponents by roughly four per game. The Panthers have a reputation for being careless with the ball, generating more than 13 turnovers per game.

 

  • The University of Pittsburgh Panthers is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 matches.
  • Pittsburgh is 2-5 SU in their last 7 matches against Wake Forest.
  • The total went UNDER in 5 of Pittsburgh’s last 6 matches in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Pittsburgh Panthers vs Wake Forest Demon Deacons Predictions 2/2/2022

 

Wake Forest is having one of its most successful seasons in recent memory. Wake Forest is presently 17-5 overall and 6-4 in the ACC. The Deacons, on the other hand, suffered a rare blowout defeat on the road against Syracuse on Saturday, falling 94-72. Wake’s 4-game unbeaten run came snapped with this setback.

 

For the most part, Wake Forest is efficient on both ends of the court. They are shooting 48 percent on offense while allowing opponents to shoot only 40 percent.

 

Wake Forest took advantage of its size to average nearly 15 free throws per game while also making 179 three-point field goals. With roughly 13.5 turnovers per game, the Deacons are the most vulnerable to poor play.

 

  • The University of Wake Forest Demon Deacons is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 4 of Wake Forest’s last 5 matches in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
  • Wake Forest is 12-1 SU in their last 13 matches at home.

Pittsburgh Panthers vs Wake Forest Demon Deacons. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Pittsburgh Panthers. I believe the Demon Deacons will win this match because their offense is significantly more explosive than the Panthers’.

 

Handed the number of points they are being given, I prefer the Panthers. Wake Forest had a good season so far, but it did not show the sort of domination that is required to blow opponents out. Pittsburgh had a difficult season, but they remained committed to their coach, Jeff Capel.

 

Capel emphasized aggressive man-to-man defense and a strong inside presence, much like his mentor Coach K. Capel, unlike Duke, does not have the sort of outside shooters that can help his big guys avoid double teams. Nonetheless, the Panthers will benefit from a Wake Forest squad that allows a lot of inside opportunities every game in this encounter.

 

In this match, I predict the Panthers to try 16-20 free throws. Furthermore, Pittsburgh’s defensive strength is their inside play. Wake Forest will be forced to beat them from the perimeter. I believe Wake will take this one outright, but it will be a tougher battle than it appears. The Pittsburgh Panthers will win to a predicted score of 75-61.
