Wake Forest opened up a 14-0 lead at home versus Duke last week, but then they were out-scored 28-7 in the final three quarters, and went on to lose 28-21. The Demon Deacons really struggled in their last road game, getting shutout in a 13-0 loss to Syracuse.

It doesn’t get any easier for Wake Forest, playing on the road at Vanderbilt in their final game of the season. The Commodores have won three straight against SEC teams, two of those on the road.

The Vandy defense has allowed an average of just 11 points in wins over Florida, Kentucky and Tennessee. That’s not good news for the #117 ranked Wake Forest offense that has averaged just 18 point per game this year.

Making matters worse for the Deacons, their top receiver Michael Campanaro suffered a broken collarbone against the Orange.

Without his top target, Deacons quarterback Tanner Price completed just 12-of-27 attempts for 124 yards, with a TD and an INT in the loss to Duke.

Playing an upstart SEC team on the road on Vanderbilt’s Senior Day, is a recipe for disaster for this struggling Wake Forest team.

Take the Commodores. If you found this NCAA football pick from Jesse Schule useful, be sure to purchase his premium college football picks on November 30th 2013

Vanderbilt is hungry for its first taste of victory in SEC play. It comes in on two weeks’ rest having last played on October 5, so it will certainly be fresh and ready to go in this one. The Commodores handled themselves very well in their first two SEC contests, losing 35-39 to Ole Miss in the closing seconds and rallying for a 25-35 loss at South Carolina. Sure, they were blown out by Missouri 28-51, but they still put up 468 total yards in a game that was much closer than the final score would indicate.

The Commodores go up against a Georgia team that is without almost all of its top skill players, which is the biggest reason why the Bulldogs have failed to cover the spread in each of their last three games. They needed overtime to beat Tennessee on October 5, and fell 26-41 at home to Missouri last weekend.

The Bulldogs are without their top receiver from last season in Malcolm Mitchell, as well as two of their top three receivers this year in Michael Bennett and Justin Scott-Wesley. All three guys are lost for the season. As is second-string running back Keith Marshall. Also, starting running back Todd Gurley remains questionable with an ankle injury after sitting out last week’s loss to Missouri.

The last time these teams met in Nashville, Vanderbilt played a great game but lost by a final of 28-33 as a 13.5-point underdog. The Commodores were blown out by the Bulldogs last season by a final of 3-48 on the road as everything that could go wrong for them, did. They certainly want revenge from that defeat heading into this one.

This isn’t the same Georgia team that nearly played in the BCS Championship last year, losing to Alabama by the narrowest of margins in the SEC Title game. Realizing that their chances of winning a BCS Championship are all but out the window with two losses already, the Bulldogs may not even show up Saturday. They could easily suffer a hangover from their loss to Missouri last week.

I like what I’ve seen from the offense this season. The Commodores are averaging 33.7 points and 425.0 yards per game to rank 55th in total offense. There are certainly some holes in this Georgia defense, which is allowing 33.7 points per game this season. Austyn Carta-Samuels is completing 66.1 percent of his passes for 1,561 yards with 10 touchdowns and six interceptions, while also rushing for 86 yards and five scores. Jordan Matthews has 47 receptions for 709 yards and five touchdowns.

Vanderbilt is 11-3 against the spread in the second half of the season over the last three seasons. Mark Richt is 2-10 against the number off a loss by 10 points or more to a conference rival as the coach of Georgia. The Commodores are 7-2 against the spread in their last nine games following an ATS loss. Vanderbilt is 13-6 against the number in its last 19 home games. The Bulldogs are 0-6 against the spread in their last six games following a double-digit home loss. Bet Vanderbilt Saturday.

Butler heads to Vanderbilt riding a six-game winning streak while the Commodores are coming off a loss in their last game at Middle Tennessee St.

Vanderbilt is 5-5 entering this big non-conference showdown with Butler and while that record may not seem very good, the fact of the matter is that the Commodores have played a very aggressive schedule thus far and it certainly isn’t getting any easier here. Still, Vanderbilt possesses one of the best home court advantages in college basketball and anytime it is getting points here, it is worth a look. Vanderbilt has prided itself on defense this season as opponents have averaged less than 60 ppg on 41.2 percent shooting including 30.9 percent from long range. Stingy defense aided Vanderbilt in an overtime victory at Xavier, one of just two teams Butler has lost to this year. Butler owns one of the biggest wins in college basketball this season when it knocked off then top ranked Indiana in overtime. The Bulldogs came back and defeated Evansville after that to avoid a letdown but that came a week later as does this contest. Overall Butler has won six straight games and is once again a publicly favored team so the lines have to be adjusted which is the case here. Taking nothing away from what the Bulldogs have done but they are in a tough spot in a tough environment against a team that everyone is down on. The Commodores are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games against team with a winning percentage above .600 while going 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games following a loss. Play (586) Vanderbilt Commodores
