There's no denying the Atlantic Coast Conference has been the NCAA's most competitive men's college basketball conference in the 2018-19 season. And with Tuesday's ACC Tournament seeding and matchups set, the country's toughest conference is ready to duke it out in Charlotte.


With March Madness just weeks away, the ACC has a shot to send up to nine teams to this year's NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament. And there's a lot on the line in a conference tournament that's Top-4 seeds double as the No. 2, No. 3, No. 4 and No. 14 teams in the nation. 


2019 ACC Tournament Bracket

Virginia heads into this year's tournament as the No. 1 seed, with North Carolina as the No. 2, Duke as the No. 3 and Florida State as the No. 4. No. 12 Miami and No. 13 Wake Forest kick off the first matchups of the tournament at Noon EST this Tuesday, March 12.


Who Won the 2018 ACC Tournament?

This is the second consecutive year UVA heads into the ACC Tournament as the No. 1 seed after the Cavaliers defeated UNC to win the 2018 ACC Tournament final. Virginia has earned the No. 1 seed in this tournament three times over the last five season and won it 2-of-3 years as the top dog (2014, 2018). 

Who is Going to Win the ACC Tournament? 

With such a stacked tournament from top to bottom, it's hard to predict which team is going to come out on top this year. However, some seeding patterns have emerged over the last five seasons. No. 2 seeds have made just one ACC Tournament final in the last five years, with No. 2 Virginia losing to No. 1 UNC in 2016.  


We've also seen six No. 4-No. 5 seed matchups over the last seven ACC Tournaments and the No. 5 seed has gone 5-1 against the No. 4 seed in those six meetings. 

Who Has the Best Odds to Win the NCAA Tournament from the ACC?

The 2019 ACC Tournament also features the betting favorite (Duke, +230) to win this year's NCAA Tournament, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. Virginia (+800) boasts the third-best odds to win it all, while North Carolina (+1400) isn't far behind the Cavaliers with the fifth-best odds, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
