Vanderbilt-Wake Forest Preview and Prediction



Wake Forest vs Vanderbilt
Line: Wake Forest -4
Saturday 7:00 PM

Vanderbilt travels to Wake Forest in a forgotten ACC vs SEC matchup this weekend. The Commodores are bowl eligible for the first time since 1982, but are coming off an ugly loss to Tennessee last week. Wake Forest lost out on a potential ACC Championship last week and will try to break a two game losing streak.

Keys to the Game

1. Turnovers

Both of these teams rely on turnovers to generate points. Wake and Vandy have been out gained in seven of their last 10 games. Both teams average under 300 ypg of total offense and will need every opportunity they can get on offense. The team that wins the turnover battle will likely win the game.

2. Can Vandy Settle on a QB?

You know the old saying that if you have two QBs you don't have one? I think this applies to Vandy this year. When they are able to get solid QB play from the starter then they have done much better than switching back and forth.

Prediction

This game may get real ugly. Neither team is explosive on offense, heck they barely have a pulse. Turnovers will overwhelmingly decide this game. I like Wake Forest at home, but they will not cover the 4 spot

Wake Forest 21 Vanderbilt 20
Vandy Covers +4

Last Week: 1-3 ATS, 2-2 SU
Season: 29-21-2 ATS, 34-18 SU
