March Madness Predictions Lines for Betting

NCAA Tournament Odds For Top ACC Teams

These days, the likes of Duke, Virginia and North Carolina always have high-ranking teams with several other programs (Florida State, Virginia Tech, Louisville, Clemson, etc.) that help make the conference what it is top-to-bottom. There are rarely any nights off in the ACC and wins against the stiff competition that exists in this conference bodes well for the NCAA tournament resume.

With those three powerhouses at the top, however, the ACC currently has three teams among the top odds-on favorites to in the 2019 NCAA Tournament.

Below are NCAA Tournament odds for the top ACC teams from NJ Sportsbooks (odds as of March 4):

NJ Sportsbook/ACC Team

FanDuel Sportsbook

BetStars NJ

SugarHouse Sportsbook












North Carolina





Virginia Tech





Florida State





  • Duke - Duke is widely thought as the future 2019 NCAA Tournament champion and  has been an NJ sports betting favorite. News on Zion Williamson’s injury status could change the odds drastically, but the Blue Devils remain heavy favorites for the time being. BetStars NJ offers Duke at +250, which appears to be a solid price these days. Bet On NCAA Basketball At BetStars!

  • Virginia - Virginia is surely out for redemption after becoming the first No. 1 seed to lose to a No. 16 in NCAA Tournament history. They’re on track for another top seed and are also a top betting favorite yet again. FanDuel Sportsbook at +950 would be the place to scoop up UVA at the moment.

  • North Carolina - Until they destroyed Duke (without Zion) recently, UNC was talked about very little relative to past years. Now, they’re in the Final Four picture and are third among ACC teams in NCAA Tournament odds. FanDuel Sportsbook’s +1600 odds are tempting, as are those of SugarHouse Sportsbook and PointsBet (+1400). Bet On NCAA Basketball At SugarHouse Sportsbook!

  • Virginia Tech - Virginia Tech is a solid all-around team with several good wins, including one over Duke that hurt NJ sports betting players. They’re dominant at home and give themselves a chance to win nearly every game. BetStars NJ Sportsbook (+4500) has the most favorable odds by far, with PointsBet (+3300) coming in second.

  • Florida State - Florida State is on the heels of an Elite Eight run in last year’s NCAA Tournament. They remain one of the nation’s most athletic teams and are another dominant home team. The tournament is played at neutral sites, but the enormous +7000 odds from BetStars NJ could be tempting for some.

NCAAB Picks For ACC Teams In NCAA Tournament

It’s very clear that the ACC’s top three teams are all in play to take home the NCAA Tournament championship once 2019 March Madness is all said and done. For that reason, the most realistic college basketball picks for futures betting is near the top of the conference.

Although Duke is likely the most talented team in the conference whether they’re shorthanded or not, the value isn’t there. As for Virginia, they’re excellent but in my view lack the offense that inevitably becomes necessary late in March.

North Carolina, however, has proven it can win away from its home floor and could be getting hot at the right time. The Tar Heels at +1600 on FanDuel Sportsbooks feels like an excellent value play at the point we stand right now.
