Florida State vs Wake Forest College Basketball Picks and Predictions – January 4, 2022

Florida State Seminoles vs Wake Forest Demon Deacons on January 4, 2022 at 7pm et, NCAAB Odds: Wake Forest -1.5 & Over/Under: 146

Florida State vs Wake Forest Game Preview:

The Wake Forest Demon Deacons will host the Florida State Seminoles this Tuesday, January 4, 2022 at 7:00 p.m. at Wake Forest University’s Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

The latest FanDuel College basketball odds have Wake Forest listed as a -1.5 point favorite against the spread and -120 on the moneyline. The over/under is sitting right now at 146 total points.

Florida State Betting Preview

The Seminoles come into this game 7-4 overall and 1-1 in conference play after getting that hard fought New Year’s Day win 83-81 against NC State.

Remember that Florida State had the huge 17-Day layoff due to health related issues, but Malik Osborne was able to shake the rust off to put up 12 of his 19 points to lead these Seminoles to that big road win.

With 7-footers Tanor Ngom and Quincy Ballard out of the lineup, they’ll be relying on Osborne to put up more performances like he did against the Wolfpack. Osbourne can guard every position plus rebound and I’m excited to see the spotlight shine more on him to show off the many talents he has.

Like last season, playing on the road could haunt this Seminoles team. They went 3-4 overall on the road last season while going an impressive 12-1 at home. So far on the road this season they score an average of 70.3 points compared to 80.4 points when playing at home. On defense when playing on the road they are giving up an average of 69 points per game.

The Seminoles are 0-5 against the spread in their last 5 games on the road and the total has gone over in 8 of Florida State’s last 11 games against an opponent in the ACC.

Wake Forest Betting Preview

Wake Forest comes into this game 11-3 overall and 8-0 at home this season, but just 1-2 in conference play after losing their last two games in a row to Louisville last Wednesday and then to the Miami Hurricanes on Saturday 92-84.

This Wake Forest team is built around Alondes Williams. Williams so far this season is putting up an average of 20.1 points, 6.4 rebounds and 5.2 assists. When playing at home this season this Demon Deacon offense scores an average on 84 points per game while defensively only giving up an average of 64 points per game.

Wake Forest is 8-0 straight up in their last 8 games at home and the total has gone over in 9 of the Demon Deacons last 13 games.
