March Madness gambling fans know that the ACC power extends beyond the traditional league chalks with the March Madness odds; Duke and North Carolina. While The Duke Blue Devils and North Carolina Tar Heels set the standard for ACC March Madness gambling excellence there are plenty of other appealing options from the league that might actually bring better value with the March Madness odds.
Miami-Florida could be a surprise March Madness betting commodity from the ACC in 2010. The Hurricanes were one of the better values on the board heading into the heat of ACC conference action as they were 15-1 straight up and 6-2 against the spread.
Clemson is another interesting March Madness gambling commodity that often gets overlooked in the ACC despite plenty of recent success. The Tigers have been especially tough at home this year with 5 payouts in 6 games. Clemson would be one of the better balanced teams in March Madness gambling as they are solid on both ends of the floor.
The Virginia Cavaliers look to be a resurgent ACC March Madness gambling program as they were 9-4 straight up and 5-3 against the spread. The Cavaliers would enter March Madness gambling with one of the most complete players in the ACC in Sylven Landesberg, who led the team in scoring, assists, and rebounds.
Virginia’s defense would also be a March Madness gambling asset as it ranked 19th in the nation.
March Madness gambling fans should also take notice of Georgia Tech as the Yellow Jackets started off the season 12-3 straight up and 7-3 against the spread and with an impressive upset win over Duke on January 9 by a score of 71-67 as 7-point home dogs.
The rare loss for Duke put them at 13-2 straight up and 9-5 against the spread. It’s not a question of if the Blue Devils “dance” in March but simply how high they will be seeded. Defending national champion North Carolina led the ACC and was 12-4 straight up but just 6-8 against the spread as their popularity with casual gamblers harms their value.
