  • The ACC Tournament tips off at 2pm ET on Tuesday, March 12
  • North Carolina sports betting apps have been able to start taking bets since March 11
  • Here’s everything you need to know to bet the ACC Tournament from your couch

The ACC regular season came to an end Saturday night with all eyes on UNC at Duke. The Tar Heels held off the Blue Devils, winning 84-79 and clinching the top seed in the ACC Tournament. Duke will enter the tournament as the #2 seed, joining UNC, Virginia, and Pitt in getting a double-bye to start the tournament.

The ACC Tournament tips off Tuesday, March 12 at 2pm ET with #12 Notre Dame vs #13 Georgia Tech, followed by two more games that afternoon/evening. For some, the best part of this year’s ACC Tournament will be betting these games legally from their phone, as North Carolina sports betting apps have been taking bets since noon on March 11. Here’s everything you need to know before betting the tournament:

The tournament will tip off Tuesday, March 12 and wrap up with the championship on Saturday, March 16 with games being played each of the five days in that window. If you plan to make any ACC futures bets, it’s important to know the path each team faces in the ACC Tournament before locking that bet in.

What Are the ACC Tournament Odds?

When ACC Tournament futures opened, the majority of sportsbooks were favoring Duke. However, we have seen a couple start to lean towards North Carolina. Regardless of where you look, though, these two schools are the clear cut favorites to win the tournament.

Team Odds to Win ACC Tournament
Duke +180
North Carolina +190
Wake Forest +750
Clemson +1000
Virginia +1400
Pittsburgh +1400
Virginia Tech +3300
Syracuse +5000
NC State +5000
Florida State +6600
Miami +10000
Boston College +20000
Georgia Tech +20000
Notre Dame +20000
Louisville +20000

If you were to bet $20 on Duke to win the ACC Tournament at the +180 odds above, you would stand to win $36 and return $56. That same bet on North Carolina at +190 odds would potentially profit $38 and return $58. Based off those odds, Duke’s probability to win the tournament is 35.7% while North Carolina’s is 34.5%.

The payouts get much higher if you want to bet someone other than Duke or North Carolina. If you like Wake Forest at +750 odds, your potential winnings on a $20 bet would be $150 with you returning $170.

You’ll find all the betting lines for ACC Tournament games on our College Basketball odds page. But we do know Notre Dame is a 1.5-point favorite over Georgia Tech in the first game of the ACC Tournament. The Wolfpack are laying 9.5 points against Louisville in the second game, and Boston College is getting 1.5 points against Miami.

Who’s the Best Bet to Win the ACC Tournament?

As you may have assumed, this depends who you ask. If you’re asking me, I like Duke to exact some revenge for their loss to UNC this past weekend. Our lead college basketball expert, Sascha Paruk, likes North Carolina. If you follow KenPom ratings, he has Duke rated slightly better than North Carolina.
