The ACC Guru
1/29 ACC Betting Preview
Duke @ Louisville- 12 PM ESPN
Line: Louisville +6
Duke is coming off a sloppy 2 point win over Clemson and only has one true road victory on the season, but things are way worse for the Cardinals. They have lost 5 of their last 6 games and just parted ways with Chris Mack. The Blue Devils go to the Blue Grass State and run away with it.
Pick: Duke -6
Miami @ Georgia Tech- 12 PM ACCNX/RSN
Line: GT +3
Miami is playing like the best team in the conference right now, Georgia Tech has 2 conference wins. This line isn't higher because GT just throttled Florida State at home, but the Jackets have owned FSU lately, winning 3 straight. Look for Miami to knock GT back down a notch.
Pick: Miami -3
NC State @ North Carolina- 2 PM ACCN
Line: UNC -7.5
I think UNC will win this game, but I don't know by how much. What I do know is this game will be played at a quick pace. Carolina is going to look to push it, and State will be able to score with them. I know 150 is a lot of points but I think they can get there.
Pick: Over 150
Virginia Tech @ Florida State- 3 PM ABC
Line: FSU -2.5
Florida State was sitting in first in the ACC before dropping a game to Georgia Tech this week. Virginia Tech was a sleeper pick to win the league, but finds itself alone in last place. They'll still play FSU close, but the Seminoles have been great at home. The confidence meter isn't very high on this one but I think FSU can manage to win by 4 or 5.
Pick: FSU -2.5
Virginia @ Notre Dame- 6 PM ACCN
Line: ND -3.5
Notre Dame has only beaten UVA once since joining the ACC, but this version of UVA has just as good of a chance to win the game as they do to lose by 15. I once watched these two teams play an overtime game that finished with 99 total points, but UVA's defense is much worse than it was then, and Notre Dame's offense is much better. Take the over.
Pick: Over 123.5
Wake Forest @ Syracuse- 8PM ACCN
Line: Syracuse -1.5
This has the potential to be the best game of the day. The line on this game opened with Wake as a 1 point favorite, but the public has swayed it the other way. I love to fade the public, and I think Alondes Williams will be able to pick apart the zone with threes and drive-and-kicks.
Pick: Wake Forest +1.5
