College Football Sportsbook Odds for Miami vs. Clemson ACC Title GamePosted by: Charlie Smith
This NCAA betting weekend, college football sportsbooks are filled to the brim with enticing opportunities to cash in big on some championship betting. There are plenty of intriguing matchups from the Big 12 Championship game to the SEC Championship match. However, the ACC Championship pairing will pit No. 7 Miami against No. 1 Clemson, which has to be one of the best contests of the weekend’s action. Let’s take a look at some 2 team teaser options for this weekend’s action.

College Football Sportsbook Betting Lines:
Miami Hurricanes +9 (-110) 46 ½ (-110) +290
Clemson Tigers -9 (-110) 46 ½ (-110) -350
The Miami Hurricanes ripped their way to a 10-1 record this season that included a 7-1 conference record that allowed the No. 7 program in the nation to punch their ticket to this year’s ACC championship match. The Hurricanes will be taking on the reigning ACC champions this Saturday in Clemson and are facing some pretty steep college football sportsbook odds. Miami hasn’t faced Clemson this season, but with the Hurricanes coming off a 14-24 loss to the unranked Pittsburgh Panthers.
Looking over both program’s statistics ahead of this championship game, it’s pretty clear that the Hurricanes will be at a disadvantage this weekend. The Hurricanes are putting up 31.9 points on offense while Clemson is putting up 35.2 themselves. Defensively the Hurricanes are giving up 18.3 while the Tigers are only allotting a slim 13.6 points to their opponents. The Hurricanes have been held under 30 points six times this season, so NCAA betting players can expect the Tigers to have their way defensively in this ACC title match. The Tigers have only been held under 30 points three times this season.
The Clemson Tigers crawl into this Saturday’s pairing sporting a No. 1 national rankings as well as an impressive 11-1 record. Clemson’s only loss of the season came against the unranked Syracuse 24-27, which most bettors are writing off as a fluke. Clemson finished the year with a 7-1 conference record to earn the top spot in the ACC Atlantic. The Tigers enter this championship match riding a 5-game win streak that has helped Clemson achieve their current ranking. If Clemson can pull off this victory Saturday it will mark the third straight ACC title the program has been able to accrue.
Sportsbook players looking to back this Sunday will likely want to stick to the spread over the money line. At -350 odds, picking the Tigers straight up isn’t that profitable. Instead, wagering on the spread allows bettors to cash in on a -110 payout; a much more lucrative option. Clemson is 7-4-1 against the spread this season, which is not that bad of a record. Miami is 5-6 against the spread on the season, so it’s looking like a pretty safe bet overall.
