Cameron Indoor Stadium will be rocking here on Monday night. This huge Atlantic Coast Conference matchup will take place in Durham between the Wake Forest Demon Deacons and the Duke Blue Devils. Both of these teams have put together respectable seasons and both teams will look to add a résumé building block with a victory here on Monday night. As they get ready to head in the last couple weeks of February. This is a game that will have plenty of implications on the conference standings and conference tournament seeding, as well as the bubble watch heading into the NCAA tournament.

Wake Forest has put together a solid season winning 16 out of their first 23 games on the year. They have a chance to put a huge piece on their résumé with a quality performance here on Monday night against their in-state rivals. As they look to pick up a crucial victory against Duke on the road and further establish themselves as a legitimate contender to make the NCAA tournament this season. Wake Forest is sitting on the bubble at the moment and this is a game that could put them on the other side of the bubble heading into the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament later on next month. 

They have put together a respectable record within conference play winning eight out of their first 12 games and they have a potential to make a push for a top four finish with a solid end of the season. A double bye in the conference tournament would be massive for their NCAA tournament hopes, as it would give them a legitimate chance at winning the conference tournament and earning an automatic bid into the big dance. Wake Forest is currently on a three game winning streak, and they will look for their fourth consecutive victory in conference play here on Monday night on the road against Duke.

As usual, Duke has been one of the most consistent teams in the NCAA this season, and they will look to add another solid victory to their résumé here on Monday night at home. As expected, Duke has been nearly impossible to beat at home this season as they have one of the biggest home court advantages in all of college basketball. They will look to utilize that to their advantage and pick up yet another victory here on Monday night against Wake Forest. As they look to get one step closer to finishing in the top four of the conference, and chase another Atlantic Coast Conference regular season championship. 

Duke comes into this game ranked inside the top 10 in the country at number nine. They will look to further establish themselves as a top 10 team with another victory here on Monday night. They have picked up 18 victories in their first 23 games of the regular season and they have been incredible inside of conference play as well, after slipping up to Georgia Tech and their first conference game. Duke comes into this game as winners of two in a row and four out of their last five and they will look for a third consecutive victory here on Monday night.

Betting trends to consider in this matchup:

- Duke is 12-2 at home

- Wake is 2-5 on the road 

- Wake is 0-1 against ranked teams

I expect this to be a close and competitive contest throughout the early stages of the matchup. In the end I look for Duke to pull away with their talent gap as I look for Kyle Filipowski to take over in the second half and lead Duke to a comfortable victory over Wake Forest. Not only do I look for Duke to pick up the solid victory at home but I also expect them to cover the spread here in this game on Monday night against Wake Forest in the process.
