The Power 5 conference tournaments are in full swing and today, MTC will look at the ACC.
Wake Forest Demon Deacons vs Syracuse Orange
Line: Wake -3.5
It’s hard to trust either one of the teams. Wake has the best player on the floor in Tyree Appleby but the Cuse have a stud freshman in Judah Mintz and a solid veteran in Joseph Girard III.
Pick: Cuse +3.5
George Tech Yellow Jackets vs Pitt Panthers
Line: Pitt -6.5
If you follow me, you know I haven’t been a big believer in Pitt all season. Kudos to Jeff Capel but this feels more like time and circumstance than being a really good team. Georgia Tech took the gift that keeps giving in Florida State. The Yellow Jackets came back from a double-digit deficit but, as much as I don’t believe in Pitt, I don’t believe in Josh Pashner even more.
Pick: Pitt -6.5
Boston College Eagles vs North Carolina Tar Heels
Line: North Carolina -11.5
This could be the most interesting game of the day in Greensboro. It will be somewhat of a home game for the Tar Heels but they haven’t been able to take advantage of anything all season. As poor of a job as Hubert Davis has done, anything is possible especially when you consider how good of a job Earl Grant has done.
Pick: Boston College +11.5
Virginia Tech Hokies vs NC State Wolfpack
Line: NC State -3.5
Is this the most unpredictable game of the day? You never know what you’ll get with either one of these two teams. Virginia Tech coming off a win against Notre Dame. Could the Hokies make a run? They have the pieces to. The Wolfpack could make a run to the ACC finals or gone home on the late bus tonight. At the very least, it could be the most fun game of the day.
Pick: over 148.5
