Demon Deacons 2021 Schedule
Wake Forest Demon Deacons Football
Despite a 40-45 overall record, head coach Dave Clawson is returning to Wake Forest for an eighth season in 2021.
After a four-win season last year, sportsbooks are expecting things to turn around for the Demon Deacons, pegging their season win total at 6.5 games. With the ACC’s third-best offense by scoring in 2020, we’ll see if the defense can take a step forward to get the Deacons over that number.
Find all of the Demon Deacons’ odds here, along with their upcoming schedule, results against the spread (ATS) so far, team trends and more.
Wake Forest Demon Deacons Point Spreads
It’s possible to be a loser in the record books and still pay off for bettors, and the Deacons did just that last year. Their 6-3 record against the spread far outpaced their 4-5 record overall.
This happens when oddsmakers expect a team to lose by more than they do, and bettors can take advantage of it by wagering on the Deacons’ point spread. Spread bets are bets on the winning or losing margin for a team, and they look like this:
- Clemson -34 (-110)
- Wake Forest +34 (-110)
The Deacs would cover as long as they lost by fewer than 34 points, as they did last season in their 24-point defeat to Clemson. This means Wake Forest covered even with the loss, whereas Clemson needed to win by 35 or more to cover the spread.
Wake Forest Demon Deacons Over/Unders
Wake Forest had a prodigious offense and a questionable defense last season. When we expect teams to score and allow lots of points, one way to profit from it is by betting the over on over/under bets. Over/unders, also known as totals, are bets on the total scoring in the game from both teams.
Using a Wake Forest vs. NC State game as an example, sportsbooks set the total at 53 points, and Wake Forest lost the game, 45-42. The winner (and winning margin) is irrelevant here. The 87 combined points were a win for over bettors, while under bettors were hoping for 52 points or fewer. If the schools combined for 53 on the nose, that would be a tie, and both sides would have gotten their money back.
Wake Forest Demon Deacons Moneylines
The simplest way to bet on the Deacons is to bet them on the moneyline. Moneyline bets are just a way to bet on the winner of the game, and they pay out no matter how the win happens. The pricing can be a little confusing, however. Let's use an example to explain.
Teams expected to win are favorites and have odds with a minus in front of the number, while teams expected to lose are underdogs, with a plus sign instead. Wake Forest as a +180 underdog would give $18 in profit to a $10 bettor, while a -180 favorite would require $18 to be risked for a $10 profit. These moneyline odds are easiest to understand with $10 or $100 units.
Wake Forest Demon Deacons Props
Slot receiver Jaquarii Roberson had a big year in 2020 with 926 yards through the air in only nine games. If you expect his success to continue, betting on his player props is for you.
Player props are bets on one player’s performance in a game. Some props you could make on Roberson include over/under on his receiving yards, receptions or touchdowns for a game. Prop bets on other Demon Deacons are available, too.
Wake Forest Demon Deacons Futures
Sharing a conference with Clemson means odds on the Deacons to win the ACC are always going to be long — currently 33-to-1 entering 2021. Betting on this longshot is an example of a futures bet, a wager on an end-of-season outcome for a team or player.
An almost endless list of futures are available, including total number of team wins, odds to win the ACC or national title and odds on player awards like the Heisman.
