With 15 teams in the league the ACC Tournament has a convoluted start. The bottom six teams provide the opening three games on Tuesday. Wednesday will feature the three Tuesday winners along with seeds five through eight. Four games that day are a result. Excitement will reach a peak on Thursday with the top four seeds meeting the Wednesday winners. Perhaps the four best games of the week are on that day. Final Four ACC semifinal doubleheader play is set for Friday. ESPN will televise the title tilt on Saturday.

Atlantic Coast Conference coaches also get a great online sports betting review. Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski is in his 38th season as Dean of Coaches in the ACC. Coach K boasts five national titles, 12 Final Fours, and three Olympic Gold medals. Roy Williams of North Carolina has three nattys to go with nine Final Fours. Often lost in the shuffle is Tony Bennett of ACC regular season champion Virginia. Bennett has posted three ACC titles and led UVA to the Elite Eight two years ago. Most noteworthy is the Cavaliers current number one rank in the nation. Almost as impressive is their defense that is also ranked tops in the land.

In addition to those coaches Notre Dame’s Mike Brey is also highly respected. Brey led the Irish to a pair of Elite Eights since 2015. But Injuries decimated his team this season. Returning to the lineup is number one player Bonzie Colson. With his return and Brey’s coaching Dame becomes a potential live GTBets sportsbook dog. Colson makes the Irish a totally different and much more dangerous team.

Betting wise Virginia and Duke were among the nation’s biggest money-making teams. Also turning in solid profits was Virginia Tech. Red ink flowed freely on Wake Forest games. Syracuse and Miami also lost a lot of money during the year.

Matchup to Watch

An ACC handicapping online sports betting review shows a lineup of loaded teams. Offensively North Carolina and Duke are among the best in college hoops. Defensively nobody tops Virginia. However, Clemson also used strong defense to make a late push at season’s end. And Miami was a profitable commodity due to solid defense. Improved Virginia Tech had enough offense to upset Duke, Virginia and North Carolina this year. Parity is paramount heading into the ACC Tourney.

With plenty of realistic choices value becomes of paramount importance. Defense is the hallmark of a consistent team. Hence it can also cover for a bad offensive night. Despite their success Virginia gets little public love. Due to its plodding offense the Cavaliers are perpetually overlooked. In conclusion Virginia brings elite defense and proven board value. Finally, their championship pedigree trumps all other considerations. Virginia is the pick!
