We’ve looked at ACC win totals and Heisman bets so far, here are the top contenders to come away with the conference title.

Clemson (+150): Can new OC Garrett Riley’s (yes, Lincoln’s brother) playcalling launch former 5-star Cade Klubnik into the Trevor Lawrence/Deshaun Watson stratosphere?

Florida State (+150): Expectations are high in Tallahassee, as FSU is looking for its first ACC title since Jameis Winston led the way in 2014. One reason why: There may not be a more feared pass rusher in the country than Jared Verse.

North Carolina (+900): The Tar Heels bring back one of the nation’s top QBs in Drake Maye to go along with 17 returning starters.

Louisville (+900): Fresh off a Big Ten West title at Purdue, new head coach Jeff Brohm will look to make a splash in Year 1 with the Cardinals avoiding Clemson, North Carolina and Miami.

NC State (+2000): Former Virginia QB Brennan Armstrong brings a ton of experience (30 starts) to a roster that had a 16-game home winning streak going till last year’s home finale.

Miami (+2000): The Canes failed to make a bowl game in Year 1 under Mario Cristobal. While they brought in two new coordinators, their ACC schedule is tough with FSU, Clemson, North Carolina and NC State.

Pitt (+2500): Veteran signal-caller Phil Jurkovec is on team No. 3 in his CFB career. Will he find success with a Panthers team that won a combined 20 games (and an ACC title) over the last two campaigns?

Duke (+3500): Mike Elko deserved a standing ovation for his head coaching job in Year 1, as Duke had its most wins (9-4) since 2014. Not bad for a team that had a 13-game ACC losing streak heading into 2022.
