ACC Tournament Betting Preview: Round 1

The ACC Tournament is here and we’ve got your bets

NCAA Basketball: Georgia Tech at Wake Forest Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

While the ACC Tournament really gets going on Wednesday, we do get a nice little two game slate to kick things off. Not only that, but tournament darling North Carolina’s run begins now(?).

Pittsburgh Panthers vs. Wake Forest Demon Deacons
KP: Wake Forest -1, O/U 139
Vegas: Wake Forest +2, O/U 137.5

I might be missing something here, but I’m not sure why the bets and money have swung to the Panthers. With a KenPom prediction of Wake -1, it’s interesting to see the line move to Pitt. Not only did the Demon Deacons win their only match up of the season, but they’ve actually been competitive recently with wins over North Carolina, Duke, and Notre Dame in their last seven games. Pitt meanwhile has lost seven in a row and haven’t won outside of the Petersen Events Center since January 8th. This game is in Greensboro. Speaking of Greensboro. Never bet against a Childress in the Coliseum.

Pick: Wake Forest +2

North Carolina Tar Heels vs. Virginia Tech Hokies
KP: Virginia Tech +1, O/U 139
Vegas: Virginia Tech +4.5, O/U 142

Pick: VaTech +4.5

Season Total: ATS (27-28-1), O/U (10-13), Total (37-41-1)
