The Miami Hurricanes and the Wake Forest Demon Deacons will meet at the Watsco Center this Saturday as both teams will be looking for another victory. Miami enters this game with an 8-7 record after losing to Florida State in its last game. Meanwhile, Wake Forest is 7-7 this season after losing to Duke in its last game. Now, both teams will be looking to improve on their respective records in this one.

Wake Forest Continues To Be Inconsistent

Last season, the Wake Forest Demon Deacons went 11-20 and lost in the first round of its conference tournament to Syracuse.  Wake Forest entered this season with hopes of drastic improvement as the team hoped to potentially finish the season with a winning record. So far this season, the team has looked pretty average as it has won seven of its first 14 games. However, the Demon Deacons faced pretty easy competition prior to conference play so one has to assume that this season will take a dark turn once quality conference foes appear on the team’s schedule. This actually occurred in the team’s last game when Wake Forest faced off against an elite Duke team and lost by 22 points. In that game, Wake Forest’s defense was awful as it allowed its opposition to score just 87 points on 58.1% shooting from the floor. If Wake Forest plans on winning this game, its defense better play a lot better.

The Wake Forest Demon Deacons are led by junior guard Brandon Childress who averaged 9.1 points per game last season. This season, he has managed to improve as he is currently leading the team in scoring with 16.9 points per game on over 46% shooting from the three-point line. As the best player on this year’s team, Childress better be at his best if Wake Forest plans on winning this tough road game.

Miami Continues To Fall Apart

Last season, the Miami Hurricanes went 22-10 and lost in the first round of the NCAA tournament to Loyola-Chicago. Miami entered this season with hopes to not only return to the big dance, but to potentially make a further run in the tournament. So far this season, the team won its first five games and looked like a lock to make it into the NCAA tournament. However, those wins were against inferior competition as the Hurricanes proceeded to lose seven of their next ten games once the level of competition stepped up. In the team’s last game, the Miami Hurricanes lost to Florida State as the team’s offense only scored 62 points on 37% shooting from the floor en route to a six point loss.

The Miami Hurricanes are led by sophomore guard Chris Lykes who has been a tremendous this season. Last season, Lykes averaged 9.6 points per game along with 2.3 assists. This season, Lykes is currently leading the team in scoring with 17.5 points per game along with 3.5 assists. As the leader of this team, Lykes will need to get his team motivated for this conference game on at home.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Simply put, Miami FL is at home and is the better all-around team. I think that the team will come into this one motivated following such a heartbreaking loss to Florida State as the team was in a great position to pick up a quality win. Both teams have struggled as of late but I think that Wake Forest lacks the talent to remain competitive in such a difficult environment. Give me the home team in this one as a result.

Prediction: Miami FL

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Both teams have the ability to score a solid number of points and I think that their respective defenses are decent at best. However, Wake Forest likes to play an uptempo style of offense which should lead to more shots and possessions as a whole. I expect Wake Forest and Miami to be efficient from the floor as this game creeps over the total. As a result so I recommend the over in this matchup.

Prediction: Over
