Can Duke Win It For Coach K?
Duke legend Mike Krzyzewski has coached his last game at Cameron Indoor Stadium. In the coach’s final season, the Blue Devils have already proven themselves a legit contender in March Madness and will now look to deliver on their status as favorites in odds to win the ACC basketball tournament.
Coming off an awful 2020-21 campaign, the Blue Devils have been injected with some young talent to help regain their usual dominant form, entering the ACC Tournament as the No. 1 seed. Freshman forward Paolo Banchero leads the team with 17.3 points and 7.7 rebounds per game. His shooting efficiency isn’t great, but Duke has surrounded the athletic Banchero with some versatile weapons.
If shooter Wendall Moore Jr. can continue to shoot at a 40 percent clip from beyond the arc and center Mark Williams can crash the boards, the Blue Devils have what it takes to dominate the ACC and make a deep run in March.
Apparently battling a “stomach bug,” the Blue Devils nearly lost to Syracuse on Thursday but can hopefully right the ship ahead of the final two games.
ACC Tournament Odds Value Pick: Miami (+1000)
It’s hard to tell why Miami is this low on the ACC Tournament oddsboard. Sure, the other three teams left in the tournament are all top teams in college basketball this year, but the Hurricanes are a legit tournament contender, too.
At 23-9, Miami rosters a balanced scoring attack filled with top guards like Kameron McGusty, Isaiah Wong and Charlie Moore. They’re a veteran squad that plays great defense, despite often been undersized against opponents, and has the depth to outlast other ACC squads.
The Hurricanes play a Duke team in the semifinals that barely got by a middling Syracuse squad and they can certainly beat either of UNC or Virginia Tech in the final. At +1000 odds, this is unreal value.
