ACC Tournament Finals Duke Blue Devils vs Notre Dame Fighting Irish Start Time, Betting Odds

The Duke Blue Devils are playing the Notre Dame Fighting Irish tonight in the ACC Tournament Finals. The game is scheduled for a 9:00 p.m. start time and it will be televised nationally on ESPN. The college basketball odds for the game have the Blue Devils favored by a slim margin to pick up the win.

College Basketball Odds
Duke -3
Total: 152 points

Duke is looking to become the first team in ACC history to peel off four wins in four days to win the conference tournament. It would certainly be an impressive feat, as Duke has already beaten Clemson, Louisville and North Carolina in consecutive days to reach the finals.

Notre Dame has looked very good in the tournament as well. The Fighting Irish have picked up solid wins over Virginia and Florida State, putting up better than 70 points in each game. Mike Brey’s team is really playing well right now, dating back the last month they’ve put together an impressive record of 8-1.

The No. 5 seed in this tournament has never won the entire thing, so Duke would be setting a nice little piece of history a couple of ways with a win here tonight.

The Blue Devils have played well defensively in this tournament, even with giving up an average of 77 points per game. The length of Duke, especially when Jayson Tatum and Amile Jefferson can be on the floor at the same time, can cause Notre Dame problems tonight.

Bonzie Colson is a double-double machine, but he’s going to have to put in work tonight to reach that goal. Duke’s zone defense will look to keep him off the boards.

Free Pick: Duke
