College Football Betting – 2007 Wake Forest Demon Deacons Preview

Wake Forest is one of the best college football betting teams year in and year out.

Head Coach Jim Grobe has done a fabulous job for Wake Forest and for college football betting players. The Demon Deacons won the ACC last year going 11-3 straight up and 8-5 against the college football betting number. NCAA College football betting players know that the rushing game was strong again, averaging 150 yards per game, but the defense was the big story, allowing 15 points per contest and just 3.1 yards per rush to really excite college football betting players. On offense, they are still a ground-oriented attack as most NCAA football betting players know. Quarterback Ben Wauk transferred out, but he only threw 21 passes for 105 yards in 2006 and meant nothing to football betting players.

College football betting fans know that QB Riley Skinner was outstanding as a freshman with 9 TDs, 5 picks, 2,051 yards while completing 65.8% of his passes in 2006. Skinner was 21-of-33 for 271 yards in the Orange bowl against Louisville. Football betting players know that the backfield has great depth with the top four running backs returning with senior RB Kenneth Moore (507 yards), sophomore RB Kevin Harris (393, 5.0 ypc), senior RB Micah Andrews (256 yards, 4.4 ypc) and senior RB De'Angelo Bryant. College football betting players know that the attack only averaged 21.6 points per game and was 96th in the nation in offense, but they made few mistakes turning it over only 15 times all season. College football betting players should know that the receiving corps will be a struggle and running back Kenneth Moore is expected to move back to that position. Kicker Sam Swank (21-of-27 FGs) was also superb and he was 5-of-7 for kicks 50 yards or more and always seemed to help college football betting players with a big kick.
