Wake Forest vs Pittsburgh 12/4/21 Betting Prediction
Wake Forest is ranked 16th with 10 wins from 12 games. During their last 4 games though, the Demon Deacons won just 2 games and lost to Clemson and UNC. Their leaky defense was tested in these two games and it allowed a total of 106 points. Wake Forest relies only on their offense to win them games. However, without any defense, they can’t really beat any opponent that can score a lot on their own, too.
Pittsburgh is also 10-2 but their story is slightly different. Pittsburgh’s defense is better and the offense is nearly as good as Wake Forest’s. The Panthers average 356.7 passing yards and 157.6 rushing yards per game. As a whole, the offense scores 42.8 points per game which is a number that can usually outscore any opponent.
Expect a shootout here but the team that can really control the game is Pittsburgh. Their defense is only great when it comes to stopping the rush, so I expect Wake Forest to score a lot of points through the air. However, Pittsburgh will have the ball for the most time and their defensive linemen can definitely put the opposing QB under pressure, making him lose yardage and forcing him to make deep throws.
