March Madness gambling handicappers will have one of the most competitive conference tournaments in all of March Madness betting to evaluate. The Duke Blue Devils would enter the ACC Tournament as the March Madness gambling favorite.
The Blue Devils were tied with Maryland for the regular season ACC title and enter March Madness betting as a prohibitive money maker that went 18-10 against the spread. Duke is always a popular March Madness pick with the general public, which sometimes drives their value down in the post season.
The Maryland Terrapins enter March Madness gambling as one of the surprise teams in the ACC. It has been quite a turnaround at College Park and the Terps have strong March Madness gambling credentials not only from being tied for first place with Duke but also for being 9-4 against the spread on the road and 5-3 against the spread as a dog.
The Virginia Tech Hokies continue to gain March Madness gambling respect but cannot let up in the ACC Tournament. Virginia Tech enters March Madness gambling action with a record of 23-7 straight up and 12-11-1 against the spread.
The Hokies could also be a dangerous and live March Madness gambling dog as they were 6-4 against the board when getting points this year. Florida State was tied with Virginia Tech for third place in the ACC and enters March Madness gambling as something of an upstart team at 22-8 straight up but a poor 8-17 against the spread.
Florida State’s inability to attract board value may scare off gamblers in the ACC Tournament. Clemson, Wake Forest, and Georgia Tech are the next tier of teams that must have a strong showing in the ACC Tournament to ensure that they will need their “dance shoes” next week.
Then there is the sad case of traditional power North Carolina, who was 16-15 straight up including just 5-11 in ACC league play. The Tar Heels were a dreadful 10-19 against the spread and would need to win the ACC Tournament outright in order to defend their National Championship.
