ACC Basketball Conference Tournament Odds: NC State Upsets UNC

The ACC is one of the most highly regarded conferences in college basketball. Bossed by two titans of hoops, the Duke Blue Devils and North Carolina Tarheels are synonymous with the sport.

10th-seeded NC State executed to perfection in their miraculous 84-76 win over the heavily favored North Carolina Tar Heels in the ACC Conference Tournament Final.

Senior guard DJ Horne dropped 29, while center DJ Burns Jr. dominated the paint with 20 of his own to pull off the upset.

The Wolfpack went just 9-11 in conference play heading into the tournament, but pulled off one of the most remarkable ACC Tournament runs in recent memory with four straight underdog victories. 

Wolfpack Pull off Huge Upset in ACC Tournament Final

It's not surprise to see North Carolina as favorites to win the ACC Tournament. The Tar Heels are on a seven game winning streak, and finished with the top regular season record at 17-3 in conference play.

North Carolina has gone 27-6 overall and smacked the rival Duke Blue Devils just last week in the heated atmosphere of Cameron Indoor Stadium. If the Tar Heels can put away their most vaunted opponents in hostile territory, they should have little trouble doing so again in a neutral setting.

Hubert Davis' team have outscored opponents by 11.6 points per game this season. Led by National Player of the Year candidate RJ Davis' 21.1 points per game, the Tar Heels offense have overwhelmed opponents. However, it's their defense that has been the real difference maker.

North Carolina is an elite defensive squad holding opposing teams to just a 46.1% effective field goal percentage this season, good for 12th in the nation. They allow teams to shoot just 31% from three, and rebound the ball at an elite level. The Tar Heels surrender fewer 93 points per 100 possessions. With a veteran-laden roster and senior Armando Bacot continuing to dominate in the paint the Tar Heels defense will be the catalyst of a deep ACC Tournament run.

With the Tobacco Road rivalry once again among the elite teams in the country, there's little value to be found further down the odds board.
