The second best conference all this season in the college basketball has been the ACC. With three teams reaching #1 ranking during the year many think this conference will bring the NCAA Championship team back to the ACC. With seven teams receiving bids to enter the NCAA tournament they tie for the most teams in the tournament with both Big East and Big Ten. Lets breakdown the odds for all the ACC teams and see if we can find value in betting future NCAA Championship teams!

North Carolina (3-1): What can you say the odds on favorite all year to win the NCAA Championship and all year have played very well in a tough conference. Third year in a row that UNC has been the favorite going into the NCAA Tournament and have not yet lived up to those expectations. Roy Williams definitely has a monkey on his back with not a great reputation of winning the big games and losing as favorite more than 5 times now. No value at 3-1 future odds and no way they are worth betting on.
Duke (15-1): The 2nd seed in the regular season in the ACC and the winner of the ACC Tournament has earned Duke a solid #2 seed. Hard to argue with Coach K's overall NCAA Tournament record but the last few years have not done well losing before the sweet 16 twice in the last 2 years. Late season change at PG has made Duke much better offensively and defensively and at 15-1 have great value. Match up very well with teams in their bracket would not be surprised to see them make a typical deep Duke tournament run.
Wake Forest (20-1): A late season couple losses cost this team at least one and maybe two seed spots but in doing so created great value at 20-1. Really like Jeff Teague and he is a player that could carry this team all the way to the final four. Might be the 2nd most athletic team behind UNC and if they hit outside shots could be a sleeper to win it all. Keep an eye on this team as if they get to the sweet 16 can beat any team in the country!
Florida State (50-1): Most explosive scorer in all of basketball Tony Douglas could carry this young team. Great value but not sure one player can carry a team to win it all. But don't count this team out of a 2nd or 3rd round upset. No Championship this year for the Seminoles!
Clemson (60-1): Another great start for this team but as always have problems sustaining the early season success. Cause havoc for all teams with their constant full court pressure. Could definitely make a run have all the talent needed to put together multiple wins. A 2nd round match up will be the most difficult style wise for them but if they get past them could win their bracket. Would not be a favorite for Craig but a small wager is interesting at 60-1.
Boston College (100-1): No way this team can win it all might as well be 1000-1!! Is an early team to watch with a match up with Michigan State in the 2nd round. Could upset but think sweet 16 is as far as they could make it.
Maryland (200-1): Same as BC could be an upsetter early but just no way they can win 6 games in a row. First round win would be huge success for this young team!
ACC has had a disappointing ending to the season with both Wake Forest and UNC losing late. Duke and Wake Forest both look to have value and have the athletic talent needed to win it all. Think UNC has great talent but very few years does the favorite actually win it and think this year they fall short again!!
