What a December for the Wake Forest Demon Deacons.

First, Wake Forest believed it would be facing off against Texas A&M in the 2021 Gator Bowl. However, the Aggies were unfortunately forced to withdraw from the game due to an increased number of COVID-19 positive tests.

With enough time to find a replacement, the Rutgers Scarlet Knights stepped up to fill in and allow Friday’s Gator Bowl to still be played.

It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that Wake Forest (10-3) is a massive favorite over Rutgers (5-7), but what is the best way for bettors to approach the Gator Bowl’s 17-point spread?

Will the bowl-ready Demon Deacons roll? Or will the Scarlet Knights parlay the excitement of an unexpected postseason berth into a better-than-expected performance?

Action Labs’ Bet Signals provide a clear answer to these questions.
