Wake Forest -3.5
ANALYSIS: It's not often that a seven-win season for Wake Forest would be considered a disappointment, but such is the case for an experienced Deacons club that many observers expected to possibly compete for a second consecutive ACC title-game bid. Instead, those hopes were derailed by a three-game losing streak that included a n-show against Louisville and close losses to N.C. State and North Carolina. Duke winning seven games under first-year coach Mike Elko, after posting five combined wins the past two seasons, is probably an overlooked story this season. Elko is a former longtime assistant under Wake coach Dave Clawson, whom he followed to four stops. But the mentor should get the best of this one as the Wake offense thrives against a weak Duke pass defense.
