Sports gambling on ACC college basketball is one of the ultimate tests of online sports gambling value and a handicapper’s ability to asses it. The first and perhaps most important sports gambling fact of betting ACC college basketball is that you must look beyond Duke and North Carolina, especially when they are online sports gambling home favorites.
Just doing that will put you well ahead of the sportsbook gambling masses. Next try and assess the less popular or respected teams that have plenty of proven sports gambling value to offer. A great example would be the Virginia Tech Hokies.
Virginia Tech is known in sports gambling as a football school but their basketball program has made significant strides in recent seasons and has become a regular post season contender. But to the masses of college basketball sports gambling this fact does not compute.
Over the past 2+ seasons Virginia Tech has been a solid 65% winner as a sports gambling underdog that is constantly undervalued, underrated, and overlooked. The North Carolina State Wolfpack are another underrated sports gambling value in ACC basketball.
The Wolfpack may be something of a .500 commodity on a straight up basis and they may lack the sports gambling attention and respect of North Carolina and Duke but all this does is serve to enhance their overall board value, especially as an underdog.
Since March of 2008 the Pack has lost only 6 out of 20 games against the spread as an underdog. Wake Forest is yet another excellent example of a dog with bite in the ACC. Since January 15 of 2008 the Demon Deacons have gone 11-6 against the spread when getting points.
Since November 30, 2008 the Deacs have also played at a solid 60% clip at home. Often times the public will consider a lesser ACC team at home. That is a lesson on what not to do as Georgia Tech illustrates.
The Yellow Jackets have gone 6-11 against the spread at home since December 2008 but those having the nerve to take them on the road have been rewarded with a winning percentage of 60% since February of 2008. It’s a lot more comfortable in ACC wagering when you leave the typical comfort zone of the masses.
