Duke is a big betting favorite vs. Virginia Tech in ACC Tournament title game
Duke is a 6-point favorite over Virginia Tech in Saturday evening’s ACC Tournament title game, according to DraftKings.
The Blue Devils are looking for their first ACC Tournament crown since 2019. Mike Krzyzewski has won 15 ACC Tournament titles in his career.
This will be Virginia Tech’s first-ever appearance in the ACC Tournament title game. Its last conference crown came in 1979 when it was a member of the Metro Conference.
Duke got to this spot by beating Syracuse and Miami in close contests. The Blue Devils have now won 14 of their last 16 games overall.
Virginia Tech needed a buzzer-beater to get past Clemson in the first round of the ACC Tournament. But since then, the Hokies have cruised to wins over Notre Dame and North Carolina in consecutive days.
Duke won its only meeting with Virginia Tech this season, 76-65 on Dec. 22 in Durham. Paolo Banchero scored 23 points on 8-of-16 shooting in that game.
Tipoff is at 8:30 p.m. ET on Saturday.
