ACC Tournament Best Bets

North Carolina (+180)

Even though the Tar Heels are the No. 1 seed in the conference tourney, they find themselves tied for the shortest odds to win the ACC Tournament (+180) with Duke. North Carolina put together a 25-6 overall record and a 17-3 conference record, which both paced the ACC during the regular season.

To close out the regular season, the Tar Heels walked into Cameron Indoor Stadium and defeated the Duke Blue Devils by the score of 84-79. RJ Davis (21.1 PPG) and Armando Bacot (13.9 PPG, 10.1 RPG) are undoubtedly the leaders on the team while Harrison Ingram (12.5 PPG, 9.3 RPG) and Cormac Ryan (11.5 PPG) are also vital to North Carolina's success.

While sitting at No. 8 in KenPom's ratings with the fifth-best adjusted defensive efficiency (93.2), the Tar Heels are posting the 23rd-most points per game (81.6) and are attempting the 23rd-most free throws per game (23.3). According to Bart Torvik's bracketology, North Carolina is penciled in as a No. 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament, and they own the sixth-shortest odds to win the National Championship (+1700).

Duke (+180)

After finishing with the second-best overall record (24-7) and conference record (15-5) in the ACC, Duke -- who have the seventh-shortest odds to win the National Championship (+2000) -- has earned the No. 2 seed in the conference tourney. The Blue Devils currently hold the No. 7 spot in KenPom's ratings with the seventh-best adjusted offensive efficiency (123.1) in the nation.

On the offensive end of the court, Duke is tied for the 43rd-most points per game (80.2) and they dish out the 49th-most assists per game (15.4). With 7-foot center Kyle Filipowski (16.7 PPG, 8.0 RPG) leading the way, the Blue Devils are also producing the 41st-best rebound margin (+5).

Aside from Filipowski, Duke has a dynamic backcourt duo of Jeremy Roach (14.3 PPG) and Jared McCain (13.6 PPG). Despite losing to the Tar Heels in the regular-season finale at home, the Blue Devils have their sights set on trying to win back-to-back conference tournaments.

Clemson (+950)

As an expected No. 6 seed in Bart Torvik's bracketology for the NCAA Tournament, the Clemson Tigers are hoping to make noise in the ACC Tournament as a No. 6 seed in the conference tourney. The Tigers logged a 21-10 overall record and an 11-9 conference record in the regular season, going 3-2 against the top-four seeds (North Carolina, Duke, the Virginia Cavaliers, and the Pittsburgh Panthers) in the ACC.

It should be noted that one of those losses was a one-point road defeat to Duke.

Clemson leans on their trio of PJ Hall (18.8 PPG, 6.8 RPG), Joseph Girard (15.7 PPG), and Chase Hunter (12.6 PPG). Along with being the No. 24 team in KenPom's ratings with the 21st-best adjusted offensive efficiency (118.9), the Tigers are registering the 44th-best effective field-goal percentage (54.3%) and the 41st-best assist-to-turnover ratio (1.45).

Following a two-year absence from the NCAA Tournament, the Tigers are back in the fold this year, and they won't be an easy out with the fourth-shortest odds to win the ACC Tournament (+950).
