Wake Forest is playing some better basketball than Pittsburgh right now. The Demon Deacons have home wins over Duke and Notre Dame along with a solid 10-point loss to UNC on the resume the last few weeks.

Event: (603) Pittsburgh vs. (604) Wake Forest
Sport/League: ACC Men’s Basketball Tournament
Date/Time: March 10, 2020 4PM EDT
Play: Wake Forest +1.0 (-110)

Now don’t get it twisted, this Wake Forest team isn’t great by any stretch, but they have some talent and are top-100 in 3-point shooting and free throw percentage. The two squads played back on January 4th with Wake winning 69-65 at Pittsburgh. Neither team shot it well from long range and Wake had 14 turnovers, but still won. The Panthers have lost seven-straight down the stretch and have been rather porous defensively. They’ve scored over 60 points just twice over the losing skid. The Panthers are 328th in 2-point shooting and 329th in 3-point shooting. The Deacons should also have the slight homecourt advantage. Give me the slight underdog.
