Wake Forest and Pittsburgh are both led by offense, but we’ll go with the Panthers because the Demon Deacons defense is by far the worst unit on the field on Saturday night. Wake Forest allowed at least 42 points in three straight games heading into last week’s win over the Boston College Eagles. On the season, the Demon Deacons No. 94 in opponent yards per play, so it’s tough to bet on a defense that has proven to be unreliable over that large of a sample size.
