Why Wake Forest can cover

Wake Forest may be on a two-game losing streak, but both losses came down the road against top-flight opponents. The Demon Deacons have won four of their five home games this season, with the only loss in double overtime to then-No. 5 Klemson. They’ve scored at least 37 points in all five home games, so they’re well equipped for North Carolina’s offense.

Junior quarterback Sam Hartman has threw for 2,423 yards and 24 touchdowns, 47 times with junior wide receiver AT Perry for 711 yards and six points. Running backs Justice Ellison, Christian Turner and Quinton Cooley average at least 4.1 yards per carry. Wake Forest is 13-1 in their last 14 home games and has covered the span in seven of their last 10 games.

Why North Carolina can cover

North Carolina is heading into this matchup calmly with as much momentum as any team in the conference, having racked up five straight wins since losing to Notre Dame in September. The Tar Heels have won a few of those games on an offense that has scored at least 27 points in every game this season. Freshman quarterback Drake Maye has thrown for nearly 3,000 yards and 31 touchdowns while throwing just three interceptions.

Hartman has lit the scoreboard at times this season as well, but he’s thrown three interceptions in each of his last two games. Maye also has more running ability than Hartman, rushing for 513 yards and four touchdowns. The Tar Heels have won four of the last six meetings between these teams, so they will go into this clash with confidence.
