Duke vs. Virginia Picks 3/11/23
It all boils down to Saturday night’s championship game of the ACC tournament. The Duke Blue Devils and Virginia Cavaliers both won two games in two days to advance to the Finals. Now this contest between Duke and Virginia will decide who wins this year’s conference crown and which team will get a big seed bump to come out of this tournament unscathed.
Duke vs Virginia betting tip
This game will be played on Saturday, March 11, 2023 at 8:30pm ET at the Greensboro Coliseum.
Why bet on Duke:
✅ Duke acted offensively on another level during this tournament. They have averaged 90.5 points per game in their two ACC tournament competitions and will solve the Virginia defense to win that title.
✅ Virginia won the only regular-season meeting between these teams this year. But that game was in Charlottesville, and Duke will be joined by a much friendlier crowd for this North Carolina competition.
The Duke Blue Devils beat the Miami Hurricanes to reach Friday night’s ACC championship game. The game was tight throughout, but Duke pulled away late with sure offense and solid defense. But they’ll need more than offense security if they’re going to break through Virginia Cavaliers’ defenses.
Forward Kyle Filipowski fired for the Blue Devils in this conference tournament. He’s averaged 19.5 points per game in Duke’s two wins this week against Pitt and Miami. Another big game from Filipowski could be just what Duke needs to complete his transformation from midseason bubble team to ACC champion.
Virginia Cavaliers: Will Defense Conference Championships Win?
The Virginia Cavaliers have decimated the NCAA tournament hopes of two conference rivals over the past two days. First, they ended the tournament hopes of the North Carolina Tar Heels, then followed by dealing a crushing blow to the Clemson Tigers’ tournament hopes. While they can’t eliminate Duke from tournament competition, they can win a conference title on Saturday night.
Virginia’s defense was at its most brutal during the ACC tournament. They have conceded 57.5 points per game to teams playing for their tournament life. While Duke will be harder to contain on defense, the Cavaliers proved more than capable with their play in Greensboro.
