Wake Forest has dropped five games in a row, including a 30-24 setback to the Clemson Tigers as 20.5-point home underdogs on Nov. 6, while losing the statistical battle in seven consecutive contests.  The Demon Deacons ranks last in the Atlantic Coast Conference in averaging 203.0 yards per game, which can’t be ignored when making your Week 12 NCAA football betting picks, while they’ve managed to score just 15.3 points a contest.  Wake Forest is 0-4 SU and 4-0 ATS as underdogs of 10.5 to 21 points during the 2014 campaign.

The Demon Deacons are going to have a hard time pulling off an upset in this ACC matchup, as the home team has won seven straight and 11 of the last 12 meetings.  Wake Forest is receiving 65.2 percent of its scoring from freshmen, while all of their offensive points have come from players who either redshirted in 2013 or were not with the program.  John Wolford has become the most successful true freshman quarterback in school history.

NC State has fallen in defeat in five of its last six games, as it comes off a 53-23 loss to the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets as three-point home underdogs last week, while getting out-gained for a sixth consecutive affair.  The Wolfpack have won 13 of their last 14 games against the Demon Deacons when playing at Carter-Finley Stadium, which is important to consider when looking over the NCAA football betting lines.  NC State is 13-4 SU and 7-9-1 ATS as favorites the last two-plus seasons, with the UNDER going 11-3 in that situation.

The Wolfpack are one win away from accomplishing one of their 2014 goals in becoming bowl eligible, while head coach Dave Doeren’s teams have earned that distinction in nine of his 12 years as a full-time leader on the sideline.  NC State has faced a touch schedule this year, with teams who it has lost to combining for a 37-11 SU record heading into the weekend.

Sports bettors will likely back the Demon Deacons due to the Wolfpack being 0-2 ATS as favorites of 10.5 to 21 points this year.
