Virginia was picked to finish second in the conference by the ACC media earlier this week, behind North Carolina. Reigning national champions Duke, which finished third in the ACC poll, has the best odds of winning the national championship.

Here's a list of the top 10 teams with the best odds, followed by those ACC teams that have at least 500/1 odds or better. In addition to the ACC teams, Virginia plays Cal, Villanova and Ohio state as part of their out of conference schedule.
