According to FanDuel, the Duke Blue Devils have the best odds to be the ACC Tournament Champions.
Duke has -130 odds to win the tournament and is currently ranked 4th in the nation.
They finished the season with a 26-5 record and a 16-4 record in conference play. They are led by freshman sensation Paolo Banchero and junior forward Wendell Moore Jr. Banchero could be the 1st pick in the 2022 NBA Draft and finished what is likely his only season of college basketball averaging 17.1 points, 7.7 rebounds, and 3.1 assists. Moore Jr. was the best shooter on this Duke squad and averaged 13.1 points, 5.5 rebounds, 4.6 assists, and 1.5 steals.
He has hit 50.9% of his shots from the field and 41% of his shots from behind the three-point line. Duke lost their last game of the season against unranked UNC 94-81, but still had an excellent regular season.
After Duke, the Wake Forest Demon Deacons and Notre Dame Fightin’ Irish have the second-best odds to win the ACC Tournament at +900. This year, Wake Forest and Notre Dame went 15-5 in conference play but are unranked.
After Duke, Wake Forest, and Notre Dame, UNC, Virginia Tech, Miami, and Virginia have the best odds at +1000, +1100, +1200, and +1500.
None of these teams are ranked but they had good seasons.

2022 ACC Tournament Predictions
I have to go with the safe choice to win the ACC Tournament. That safe choice is Duke. Not only was Duke one of the best teams in the ACC, but they are one of the most historically dominant college basketball programs of all time.
Although I expect Duke the win the ACC Tournament, I expect UNC to give them a run for their money. They are one of the better-unranked teams and already beat Duke once this season.
The ACC is not particularly talented this year. Usually, they are one of the strongest basketball conferences, but this appears to be an off-year. With that being said, there are still a few ACC teams worthy of making the NCAA Tournament. Those teams are Duke, Miami, UNC, and Notre Dame.
