Wake Forest Football: The Over/Under

This article is the first in a series of articles in which the Confidential selects the over/under for football wins in 2014.  We’ll take a cursory look at the schedule and determine what we think is the point where folks will struggle to select “over” or “under.”  We hope people will share their comments as to “why” they are going over/under.  If you disagree with our over/under choice, of course, feel free to let us know too.  The first team up: Wake Forest.  We are going with an over/under of 4.5.

Here is the Wake Forest schedule:

2014 Schedule
Aug. 28 at Louisiana-Monroe
Sept. 6 GARDNER-WEBB
Sept. 13 at Utah State
Sept. 20 ARMY
Sept. 27 at Louisville*
Oct. 4 at Florida State*
Oct. 11 OPEN
Oct. 18 SYRACUSE*
Oct. 25 BOSTON COLLEGE*
Nov. 1 OPEN
Nov. 6 CLEMSON*
Nov. 15 at NC State*
Nov. 22 VIRGINIA TECH*
Nov. 29 at Duke*

Likely losses: FSU, Clemson, Louisville, Va Tech, @ Duke (5)

Likely wins: ULM, Gardner- Webb, Army (3)

Toss-ups: Utah State (on the road), Syracuse (home), BC (home), NC State (road) (4)

Win all the toss-ups, 7-5.  Ultimate upside?  9 wins.  The downside?  It’s not like ULM on the road is a gimme.

Anyway, splitting the toss-ups gets us to a 5-7 record for Wake Forest for 2014.  We think that the toss-ups are harder than they look.  We will slide the over-under to 4.5 and make Demon Deacons fans make the case for why we should find 5 or more wins, rather than 4 or fewer wins.

What do you think?  Vote in our poll and let us know on here or on Twitter @ acconfi.

  1. I’m going “under” largely because WtF has a new coach in Dave Clawson, and even under the best circumstances there can be growing pains when a new coaching staff comes in.
