The (1-1) Wake Forest Demon Deacons of the ACC Atlantic Division will travel to the “EMPIRE STATE” for an out of conference football game. Wake Forest plays the (0-2) Army Black Knights who are independent in NCAA Football League action. The game will be at Michie Stadium on the banks of the Hudson River in West Point, New York. Kickoff time is at 12:00 PM EST. The Best Sports Handicapper believes the Wake Forest Demon Deacons played very well for forty-three minutes at Syracuse but fell short at Syracuse. The Army Black Knights have been competitive against average College Football teams this season. But the Black Knights are winless. The opening betting line has Army as a five and a half-point Home Underdog Against The Spread. The betting odds total is 47-points for Saturday’s game.
The 2015 Wake Forest Demon Deacons took a 17-13 halftime lead into the lockers room last week at Syracuse. Wake Forest got outscored 17-0 in the second half of the ACC opener. Head Coach Dave Clawson believes the offense has taken steps forward in 2015. Wake Forest had twenty-three first downs in the road loss and Syracuse had just fifteen. Taking better care of the football is the topic of discussion at practice this week leading up to the game at Army. Quarterback John Wolford threw three critical interceptions in the Carrier Dome and he must take better care of the football. One of the interceptions was returned for a touchdown in the second quarter. The Wake Forest scout team must duplicate the complicated triple option which is run by the offense so the Wake Forest defense understands what they are facing. Wake Forest has the better team but understands Army is desperate for a victory. Clawson is preaching discipline this week, every player on defense must keep their assignments and not try to make spectacular plays. Clawson understands that is the best way to stop the triple option. The Wake Forest offense will be able to move the football. Another area of concern is how the team will perform in back to back road trips.
Army Head Coach Jeff Monken believes his team is better than they have shown the first two weeks of action. It’s hard to tell by the team’s offensive performance at Connecticut last Saturday. Army fans are used to watching the triple option offense runs nearly ninety plays per game. The Black Knights offense ran just 41 offensive plays in the loss to UCONN and that is unacceptable at West Point. Many fans of the Black Knights believe the team must change offensive philosophies. Quarterback Ahmad Bradshaw has accounted for 272 of Army’s 436 rushing yards. Monken must open up the pay book and throw the football a little more often. The triple-option Army style is very predictable and opposing coaches have perfected defending it so far in 2015. Monken say’s his offense takes what the defense gives them. The problem for Army is the talent on offense isn’t the best in College Football and he must adjust. The key to an Army win is to move the football on offense and play smash mouth defense and creat turnovers vs. An improved Wake Forest offense.
Wake Forest is 0-4 ATS their last four Football games on the road.
Army is 1-4 gainst The Point Spread their last five vs. The Atlantic Coast Conference.
