What to Know
The Wake Forest Demon Deacons will square off against the South Carolina State Bulldogs at 8:30 p.m. ET Wednesday at Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum. Wake Forest is the favorite here — although they were the favorites in their last game, too, so the odds might count for a little less.
It was close but no cigar for the Demon Deacons as they fell 77-75 to the Loyola Marymount Lions on Sunday. The losing side was boosted by guard Tyree Appleby, who had 19 points and eight assists along with eight boards.
Meanwhile, South Carolina State was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap this past Saturday as they fell 72-66 to the North Florida Ospreys.
This next matchup looks promising for Wake Forest, who are favored by a full 26.5 points. Those burned by picking them against the spread on Sunday might want to keep in mind that the team has not yet dropped back-to-back games against the spread this season.
With both teams hitting sour notes in their previous games, they will no doubt be looking to produce a better outcome in this one. We’ll see which team satisfies their hunger and which team leaves with an empty stomach.
