Wake Forest Demon Deacons | ACC (Atlantic)


Conference Analysis
Win Division (+2600), Win Conference (+5500)
SSA Model Pick: Division (Low Confidence)
Every team in the Atlantic is worthy of going to a bowl. Clawson has found a formula for winning at Wake and should have the Demon Deacons in position for another winning season. Unfortunately, there are just too many good teams in their division and it’s difficult to think of a scenario in which Wake takes the Atlantic. But the model says there is a way for them to win it and at 26:1 you’re catching some value.

Win Total Analysis
6.5 wins (+105/-125)
SSA Model Pick: None
Wake should find their way to a bowl for the third straight season. Will they be a 6 win team or a 7 win team? That’s the question. Our model has them at 6.4 wins so stay away from this total number.
