2024 ACC Basketball Predictions with Futures Odds
In my opinion, there is nothing better than Duke vs. North Carolina on the hardwood. It is like the Yankees playing the Red Sox or the Steelers playing the Ravens. You know you will be entertained until the clock hits zero. So, no surprise the two blue bloods are the leading odds to win the ACC this season. Can anyone catch them? There are currently six teams with odds at less than 10-1 to win the ACC regular season title. Doc’s Sports will break down some of the best bets below on who can win the crown.

It is hard to bet against Jon Scheyer’s program after the Blue Devils return 10 players in total, four of which are starters. They also brought in the nation’s number two recruiting class that included Jared McCain. The return of Jeremy Roach and Kyle Filipkowski, the reigning ACC Player of the Year, is a huge boost. Filipowski leads the team with 17.5 points per game, 8.7 rebounds per game, 1.4 steals and 1.9 blocks per contest. Five players in total average double figures, and the Blue Devils offense is putting up 83.5 points a game. Duke has all the tools to win the ACC this season.
North Carolina +260
After last season’s embarrassment of missing the NCAA Tournament after starting the season as the No. 1 team in the country, no team has more to prove and should be highly motivated throughout 2023-24. Armando Bacot has been one of the most dominant bigs since arriving in Chapel Hill and just scored his 2,000th point a few days ago. Pair Bacot with R.J. Davis’ play, and there might not be a better one-two punch in the nation. Davis is averaging 21.1 points per game and shooting an astonishing 94.9% from the free throw line. Hubert Davis has the tools to spark a bounce back, and the Tar Heels could be the best team in the ACC.
The Hurricanes bring back a great core of players from a team that made it to the Final Four this past March, and they brought in Florida State transfer Matthew Cleveland, who is currently third on the team in scoring. Cleveland joins Nijel Pack, Woogla Poplar, and Norchad Omier to make up what should be another championship-contending Canes squad. The Hurricanes have already defeated Clemson in ACC play and only play Duke once. Grab this squad at 6-1 odds.
The Tigers are a very interesting team this year in the ACC and are to a hot start at 11-2 overall and 1-1 in the ACC. They lost Hunter Tyson, but they returned three starters and brought in Syracuse transfer Joe Girard III and NC State transfer Jack Clark. PJ Hall leads the offense with 20.2 points per game, and Girad III is second on the squad averaging 15.8 points per contest. It will be interesting to see how this team meshes going forward in ACC play.
Wake Forest +900
The Demon Deacons are off to a solid start at 10-3 overall, and most importantly 2-0 in ACC contests. They lost Tyree Appleby, a 2023 All-ACC First Team honoree, but returned three of their top four scorers. They also bring in a top 50 recruiting class. This is possibly Steve Forbes’ best roster he has had during his tenure in Winston-Salem. Last year this team faltered down the stretch. If they can minimize mistakes, and take advantage of an easy schedule where they only have to play Duke, Miami, and Clemson once, this team could be a dark horse for the ACC crown.
My Pick: Miami +600
Atlantic Coast Conference Odds
North Carolina +260
Wake Forest +900
NC State +2600
Virginia Tech +3400
Florida State +9500
Boston College +12000
Georgia Tech +21000
Notre Dame +25000
