The Duke Blue Devils have the most tournament championships in ACC history with 21. They can add to that total tonight when they take on the Virginia Cavaliers.

In order for them to achieve that, they need to avenge a regular season loss to Virginia, when the Cavaliers took him the 69-62 victory.

So, what’s the bet to make for tonight’s ACC Tournament final?

Let’s take a look at the odds and then I’ll break down my best bet.

Duke vs. Virginia prediction and pick

Virginia’s defense has been suffocating for its opponents this ACC Tournament, and I expect the same in today’s championship game.

The Cavaliers come into the game at 42nd in defensive efficiency and were able to completely shut down Duke in their overtime win against them earlier this season. In that game, Duke committed 22 turnovers, which ended u being the difference maker.

Turnovers has been a bit of a problem for them all season, as they rank 188th in turnovers per possession. That will cause them to have trouble against teams like Virginia who can force plenty of turnovers throughout the duration of the game.

I don’t know if Virginia will win this game, but even if they don’t, I can’t imagine the Blue Devils running away with it. I’ll back Virginia with the points and hope we get a close one in the ACC final.
