Duke listed as joint favorites for ACC tournament

Published Add your comment

Bovada have listed Duke as joint favorites to win the ACC tournament this year along with the Virginia Cavaliers. The sports betting site believes Duke are equal to Viriginia, despite the Blue Devils trailing the Cavaliers by three games in the regular season standings.

Virginia have the best record in the whole of the ACC at 25-6 but are placed as joint favorites with Duke at a price of 2-1.

Syracuse, who have the second best record in the conference, are 3-1. Whilst North Carolina, who have an identical conference record to Duke are fourth favorites at 7-1.

Duke is one of the best programs in the history of college basketball, with four NCAA tournament wins. However they have struggled a little this season with a record of 24-7, their worst since 2007.

However, with potential future NBA stars like Jabari Parker, the Blue Devils will prove to be a tricky opposition in both conference and NCAA tournament play this year.

Virginia Tech, Wake Forest and Boston College are the outside shots at the conference tournament this year, they all have odds of 500-1 to win it all.
