ACC Tourney Betting Preview: Hurricanes And Seminoles Quarterfinals
The ACC is considered by most to be the best college basketball conference in the country. Bettors routinely have a hard time picking winners in a conference that sends an average of five to seven teams a year to the NCAA Tournament. This season, the league will again send that many teams to the Big Dance, but which teams go is the surprising part.The Florida State Seminoles and Miami Hurricanes have been brought to the ACC with the hopes of building the conferences reputation in football. Over the past couple of years, however, the Hurricanes and Seminoles have shown that they can also build competitive basketball teams.Florida State has been to the NCAA Tournament several years in a row, ironically, with former Miami Coach Leonard Hamilton. The Seminoles coach again has his team headed towards the tournament, with a #16 ranking coming into the ACC Tournament this week.Miami is a different story. They have not been to the NCAA Tournament since 2008, but by most accounts, this year’s team is just one win away from ending that drought. The Hurricanes smoked Georgia Tech in their ACC opener, and now face rival FSU with a spot in the tournament semi-finals on the line.The Seminoles are the betting favorites in the game, but that should not deter the Hurricanes. The last time the two teams met, it was Miami that walked off the court winners. The team that survives tonight will most likely be looking at a third match-up with Duke in the semis. The Seminoles and Hurricanes have both beaten Duke this season.North Carolina has already advanced to the conference semi-finals with a win over Maryland this afternoon. Duke will be taking on Virginia Tech, and North Carolina State and Virginia will do battle to determine the other two teams that will join Carolina and the FSU, Miami, winner, in the semis on Saturday.
