Miami rocks NCAAB futures odds like a hurricane

The ACC season strays from the script about as much as an episode of Scooby-Doo.

Almost every year, Duke, North Carolina, and N.C. State are expected to battle it out for the conference crown and come March, those college hoops Goliaths are butting heads just as planned. However, the 2012-13 season has thrown a wrinkle in the fabric of the ACC.

The Miami Hurricanes, predicted to finish in the middle of the conference pack, have jumped to the top of the ACC with wins over those perennial powerhouses – most recently knocking off North Carolina State 79-78 as pick’em Saturday night. Now the Hurricanes are 25/1 to win the 2013 NCAA Tournament.

That win improved Miami to 17-3 SU – tops in the ACC – and 13-4 ATS – the most profitable ATS mark in the country.

The Canes’ ticket to the tournament is all but a given at this point. They have 10 games remaining on the schedule, with rematches against UNC (at home) and Duke (in Cameron) circled on the calendar. But, for the most part, the heavy lifting has been done.

Miami has the makeup to shake things up in March. It’s anchored by the experienced frontcourt trio of Reggie Johnson, Julian Gamble and Kenny Kadji, which combines to average more than 30 points and almost 21 rebounds per game. Add to that the scoring and stability (10.8 turnovers per game - 11th best) from guards Durand Scott and Shane Larkin, and the Hurricanes could be a nice long-shot wager to win the Big Dance.

Next up for the Canes are the Boston College Eagles at home Tuesday. Miami is a perfect 7-0 ATS as a host this season.
