The 2019 ACC Tournament bracket kicks off with a battle between the No. 12 seed Miami Hurricanes and the No. 13 seed Wake Forest Demon Deacons this Tuesday afternoon. Both teams are longshots to win the ACC Tournament, but with an NCAA Tournament berth on the line, anything is possible. 

According to FanDuel Sportsbook, the Hurricanes are currently 7-point favorites. However, if you're thinking about placing a wager on this game, you might want to check out what some of the top experts in the industry are saying. 

Miami vs. Wake Forest Predictions

Tony's Picks 

Tony Tellez is rolling with Wake Forest as 7-point underdogs, as he believes Miami's recent defensive struggles will make it tough to cover the spread. The Demon Deacons are also strong on the offensive glass (21st in the NCAA in offensive rebounds per game), and Miami is not a great rebounding team.

Sports Chat Place 

On the other hand, Sports Chat Place is going with Miami, even as 7.5-point favorites. The staff at Sports Chat Place believes this spread will come down to the wire, but the Hurricanes' offense has enough firepower to keep the Demon Deacons at bay. 

Cappers Picks

The staff at Cappers Picks is also going with the Hurricanes to cover a 7-point spread, predicting an 81-71 Miami victory. They believe the Demon Deacons are one of the worst teams in the ACC, and the Hurricanes should be able to handle them without much issue. 

Two of the three experts we highlighted are going with the Hurricanes as 7-point favorites in the ACC Tournament opener, but Tony Pick's is backing the Demon Deacons to cover the spread.
