Last season, the Clemson Tigers made the great run to the national championship game in college football. 2016 should be another great season for Clemson, and the entire Atlantic Coast Conference. Florida State has been at the top before recently as well. Let’s take a look at the ACC College Football Odds Analysis for the 2016 season.
ACC College Football Odds Analysis
Clemson Tigers +110
Last season, the Clemson Tigers won their first 14 games of the season and then fell in the national title game. Dabo Swinney has another loaded roster, led by quarterback DeShaun Watson. Wayne Gallman and Artavis Scott, along with Jordan Leggett give him plenty of weapons. The defense continues to improve, and the Tigers have a favorable schedule, outside of the trip to Florida State. The Clemson Tigers are not going to make you a ton of money, but if you want a pretty sure bet, it seems to be the way to go. The Tigers are tied with Alabama and Ohio State to win the national title at 8/1 as well.
Florida State Seminoles +200
The gap is not nearly as large this season between Clemson and the next best, as it was a season ago. Florida State won 10 games a season ago, and got into the New Year’s Six Bowl games. Dalvin Cook and Roderick Johnson are back, while Sean Maguire is slated to be the starting quarterback. Florida State should be a really good football team, but will have a tough time getting through the Atlantic Coast Conference. They are listed +200, and to win the national title at +15/1.
Miami Hurricanes +700
Mark Richt is now in charge in Miami. They will contender in the Coastal Division for sure this season. Their toughest competition will the the North Carolina Tar Heels. Look for the Hurricanes to be a much more disciplined team under Richt. Quarterback Brad Kaaya is back, and many hope he shows the maturity to improve this season. The defense for Miami MUST improve, after they allowed 6.1 yards per game game in ACC games. There are several players gone, but Richt is doing a nice job of quickly retooling. Taking Miami at +700 to win the Atlantic Coast Conference is not a bad idea. Taking them at +85/1 to win the national title would be too much of a stretch.
North Carolina Tar Heels +800
One of the biggest surprises in the country a season ago will not sneak up on anyone this season. North Carolina won the Coastal Division a season ago, and they are seeking a repeat trip to Charlotte. The Tar Heels will use Mitch Trubiksy at quarterback to replace Marquise Williams. Elijah Hood is one of the top returning running backs in the nation as well. Defense last season was much improved under Gene Chizik, and many expect season two to go even better. Taking the North Carolina Tar Heels is not a terrible bet, but we like Miami more in that division.
There you go. That’s a good look at the MyBookie.ag Atlantic Coast Conference College Football Odds Analysis for the upcoming 2016 season. Best of luck and enjoy the season!
