North Carolina sports betting will launch on March 11 — just one day before the start of the ACC Tournament.

It's convenient timing — and intentional. North Carolina will be among the few states that permit in-state betting and wagers on collegiate player props.

Regulators and stakeholders were keen on targeting the college basketball betting market, and it stands to reason why. Four teams in the ACC — Wake Forest, Duke, North Carolina and North Carolina State — are competing in that conference's premier tournament a day after sports betting in North Carolina launches.

And four teams in total from North Carolina — Wake Forest, Duke, North Carolina and Appalachian State — are projected as of Tuesday afternoon to make March Madness, according to ESPN.

Still, Wake is on the bubble to even make the tournament, although most prognosticators expect the team to pull through in the end. For reference, their odds of winning it all are +10000 — tied for 28th in the country. That's according to FanDuel, which will launch in North Carolina the first day they're eligible.

Wake is also 28th in the country in their odds to make the Final Four, sitting at +2400, behind Gonzaga (+2300), Mississippi State (+2300) and Texas Tech (+2200) and just ahead of Texas, Florida Atlantic, TCU, South Carolina and Utah State, which are all priced at +2800.

You can get Wake at +25000 to win the ACC regular season, but that's effectively a two horse race between UNC and Duke. That line is only available at BetRivers. For reference, UNC is -835 and Duke is +350.
