ACC Football Conference Odds

My have things changed in the ACC heading into the 2019-20 regular season schedule! Since joining the conference, the Florida State Seminoles have run roughshod upon most of its opposition. That is until Jimbo Fisher took his ball to College Station to overlook the Texas A&M Aggies football program. The Noles only went on to win seven games in his final season in Tallahassee, but the bottom dropped out a season ago in Willie Taggart’s debut with FSU only managing five wins at offshore sportsbooks to miss out on the bowl season for the first time in ages.

The Seminoles fall from grace has allowed Dabo Swinney’s Clemson Tigers to kick the doors in and establish itself as the dominant power in the ACC. As remarkable a run the Tigers have had winning the National Championship two of the last three seasons, it’s reign atop the ACC has been even more impressive with it winning the conference five of the last eight times. In looking at the current ACC title odds, Clemson is the runaway odds on favorite to win a fifth straight ACC title this season with the other remaining 13 teams all vying for a second place finish.

From 2015-2018, the Clemson Tigers have been dominant. They went on to win the Atlantic Division in each of those seasons, and followed it up with wins in the ACC title game. For the most part, the end results in those matchups have been sickeningly uncompetitive; none more so than from 2017-18 when they throttled the Miami Hurricanes 38-3 as 12.5-point favorites and followed it up with a 42-10 shellacking of Pittsburgh as near 4 touchdown neutral field favorites. Linemakers didn’t foresee Trevor Lawrence and company having much of any issues defending its conference title this season after opening them up -265 favorites to seal the deal. The betting markets also look to be in agreement with that assessment with Dabo’s kids up to -400 chalk to win the conference a fifth straight time. While there are some big shoes to fill on both sides of the ball from last year’s championship team, Clemson has signed a number of top-five recruiting classes through the years that should allow them to not skip a beat. We’re talking about a team that’s won 58 of its last 62 overall games played. Honestly folks, when speaking of the current ACC, its Clemson and everyone else; with “everyone else” in the distance to the point that you have to squint to the point of blindness just to catch a shadow! Even if the defense takes a step back this season, opposing teams are going to need to score a ton of points to overcome Lawrence and company.

The Miami Hurricanes looked to be back in 2017-18 after Mark Richt’s kids went on to log a 10-3 record but ended up losing to Wisconsin in the Orange Bowl. Still, expectations were at an all-time high heading into last season with the foundation of the program’s reemergence laid. Unfortunately, it failed to all come together for a Miami team whose defense ultimately buckled due to the offense’s inability to sustain drives and put points on the board. After the season resulted in another defeat to the Badgers in a bowl game – this time in a much less competitive fashion – Richt elected to step down which opened the doors for Manny Diaz to take over head coaching duties in hopes finding a way to put a jolt into the offense while at the same time continue putting one of the best stop units in the country on the gridiron; Miami ranked No. 4 overall and No. 18 in scoring defense a season ago. Whether that results in the Canes being a major player in the Coastal Division remains to be seen. In terms of the big picture, Miami is the favored squad to represent the division in the ACC title game where any of the teams that qualify will likely get bludgeoned by the reigning champs.

If looking for a team to possibly give Clemson a major run for its money on the ACC title odds, look no further than Dino Babers Syracuse Orange. Though integral pieces to last year’s 10-3 team that logged a dominant 34-18 win over West Virginia in the Camping World Bowl are no longer on the roster, Babers has done a phenomenal job rising this program from the ashes to become at the very least bowl worthy moving forward. The Orange enter year four of the Babers regime off their first 10-win campaign since 2001 and highest AP ranking since 1998. The offense is infused with much better talent than in year’s past, which should make the quarterback transition from Eric Dungey to Tommy DeVito a bit smoother. The defense is loaded up front, while the secondary is ripe with veteran experience. If the linebacker corps finds its way early on, Syracuse will once again be a force; especially with the special teams unit one of if not the best in the country! Mark your calendars for September 14 as that’s the day college football bettors at top rated sportsbooks will find out if the Orange has what it takes to compete for the ACC title and get a shot at the program’s first taste of the College Football Playoff with the Clemson Tigers paying the Carrier Dome a visit. They’re 1-1 straight up and 2-0 against the spread versus the tigers the last two seasons, and if they win that game, Babers will be on his way towards a huge payday down the road!

ACC Football Format

When it comes to the Power 5 conferences, the ACC doesn’t always rate in the top three. The perception of the league has changed some over the past four years, though, thanks to what Clemson did to the college football world. The Tigers won the CFP National Championship in 2017, outdueling big, bad Alabama. They then did it again in 2018, this time in true dominating fashion after kicking the Crimson Tide to the curb by a 44-16 final count. But the ACC remains a two-team league with Clemson and Florida State combining to win the last eight titles and each claiming at least one National Championship in the past six seasons.

The ACC currently consists of two seven-team divisions called the Atlantic and the Coastal. Teams will play six games within their division rotating between home and away annually. Every team is paired with a permanent partner from the other division which they play every year. The schedule also consists of one cross-over game which changes every season. Each team plays a total of eight conference games.

Since 2005 when the league expanded to 12 teams giving it the required number to hold a championship game, the ACC has done just that. Division winners square off for the right to be proclaimed ACC champion. The title game was held in Jacksonville for the first three playings before moving to Tampa. Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte hosted the game from 2010 through 2015 before politics got in the way, but has been the home of the title game each of the last two seasons.

The ACC will send its champion to the Orange Bowl this season if that team isn’t selected as a national semifinalist. The league also has affiliations with the Citrus Bowl, Camping World Bowl, Music City Bowl, Sun Bowl, Belk Bowl, Gator Bowl, Pinstripe Bowl, Military Bowl, Independence Bowl, Quick Lane Bowl, Gasparilla Bowl and Birmingham Bowl.

*Georgia Tech vacated the ACC title in 2009

While Clemson has gotten all the pub recently, the league has been dominated by Florida State. Since the Seminoles began competing for a league title in the 1992 season, they’ve won it outright 13 times and shared it twice. FSU won or shared the league crown in each of its first nine seasons in the ACC. Clemson has been a league member for 40 years longer than Florida State and has just three more conference title than the Noles.

South Carolina left the ACC following the 1971 season and has one more league title than current members Boston College, Louisville, Miami, Pittsburgh and Syracuse, who have all yet to capture a conference championship.

The Atlantic Division, in particular Clemson and Florida State, has dominated the title game recently. The duo has represented the Atlantic Division in the title game each of the last eight seasons and came out on the right side of the scoreboard each time. Clemson has five wins to its credit, while FSU checks in with three. The Coastal has put up a different opponent in each of the last six title games and Virginia Tech has the most overall visits to the championship game with six, but hasn’t made an appearance since 2016; the season after Frank Beamer unplugged his headset.

* No longer a conference member

Florida State certainly has found conference alignment to its liking. The Noles played as an independent until joining the ACC in 1992 and hung a conference championship banner in each of its first nine seasons. FSU became an instant hit in the league and overshadowed some of the original members. Duke (7), North Carolina State (7), North Carolina (5), Wake Forest (2) and Virginia (2) have combined for 23 titles and all have been competing since 1953.

All of the established conference members have won at least two championships, but the newer programs following realignment are still waiting to hoist the hardware. Boston College, Louisville, Miami, Pittsburgh and Syracuse have yet to win an ACC title and only Boston College has played in the championship game.
