Wake Forest (-17) vs Rutgers

The math favors Wake Forest by 14.2 points with a total of 59.6 points but I haven’t been able to find any information on which Rutgers players did not come back to the team when they were chosen to replace Texas A&M a week ago. There are also some players that had surgery at the end of the season that won’t be playing. It’s also a strange situation given that the Scarlet Knight’s had 4 weeks off with no practice before this past week – and they only got to practice a couple of times before heading to Jacksonville. So, while the math favors Wake by 14 points I think the current line of 17 points is more than reasonable given the circumstances.

I can see a blowout and I can also see Wake Forest letting down after having their sites set on a big time opponent and now getting a bad Rutgers team instead.┬áDouble-digit bowl favorites are now 0-5 ATS and 2-3 straight up after South Carolina’s win over North Carolina and Wake Forest applies to a 6-33 ATS bowl situation. I’ll have more information about which Rutgers players aren’t suited up before the game. Regardless, I won’t be involved in this game.
