Through eight games apiece, both the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and Wake Forest Demon Deacons have posted identical 5-3 records. But the odds makers aren't buying the wins and losses for this Saturday's match-up between the two teams, as the Fighting Irish are tabbed as 13-point favorites against the Demon Deacons for this weekend by our partners over at Odds Shark.
Wake Forest has legitimate upset potential at home, though, as the Demon Deacons actually upset then-No. 23 Florida State at home in October. They've lost two of their past three games, and managed to beat Duke by just a single point in their lone victory, but they have typically played much better in front of their home crowd this season.
The game's over/under is presently set at 55.5 points, and Notre Dame's offense is presumably shooting high against a pretty weak Wake Forest defense. The Irish are coming off a dominant 56-14 victory against Navy last week, but they also looked pretty over matched the previous week while facing USC.
