The North Carolina Tar Heels wrapped up their regular season with a 25-6 straight up and 12-17-2 against the spread record to lock up the top seed in their conference. The Tar Heels now turn their attention to the ACC Tournament in Washington, D.C.

North Carolina is a +185 favorite on the odds to win the ACC Tournament according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com. Despite having advanced to the ACC Tournament championship game in four of the last five seasons, the Tar Heels haven't won the conference tournament since doing so in back-to-back years in 2007-08.

North Carolina's tournament will kick off on Thursday against the winner of Wednesday's No. 8 Pittsburgh (+1600 to win the tournament) vs. No. 9 Syracuse (+2500) game.

The No. 2 Virginia Cavaliers are virtually co-favorites to win the ACC Tournament this season, going off at +220 on the college basketball odds to do so. Virginia went 24-6 SU this season and finished with a strong run down the stretch going 8-2 SU and ATS over its last 10 games.

The Cavaliers won their first championship since 1976 in 2014 and are looking to finish off another strong season this year on a high note. The winner of Wednesday's No. 7 Clemson (+2500) vs. No. 10 Georgia Tech matchup advances to play Virginia on Thursday.

No. 5 Duke (+425) stumbled to the finish line in the regular season with a 2-3 SU and 1-3-1 ATS record over its last five games, but the Blue Devils will have a chance to get things turned around before the NCAA Tournament with a strong showing in the ACC Tournament this week.

The Blue Devils have gone 8-0 on the UNDER in their last eight games per the OddsShark College Basketball Database. Duke faces the winner of Tuesday's No. 12 North Carolina State vs. No. 13 Wake Forest game on Wednesday, and the winner of that game will advance to take on No. 4 Notre Dame (+1400) on Thursday.

The No. 3 Miami Hurricanes (+450) went 8-2 SU and 7-3 ATS over their last 10 regular season games. No. 11 Florida State (+3300) clashes with No. 14 Boston College on Tuesday for a chance to play No. 6 Virginia Tech on Wednesday. The winner of Wednesday's game will go up against Miami on Thursday.
