With the end of college football betting in sight, the best sportsbook players in the nation are ready to make the best of the little time we have left. This weekend is chock full of wagering opportunities since most divisions will be holding their championship game. One particular matchup that should deliver a thrilling contest is this weekend’s ACC Championship game between the Miami Hurricanes and the Clemson Tigers. Miami enters this contest ranked No. 7 in the nation while the Clemson wields the highest honors since their ranked No. 1 overall. Let’s mulch over some gambling bets online for players betting on this year’s ACC Championship.

Betting Miami

No. 7 Miami found plenty of success during the regular season as the program finished 10-1 with a 7-1 ACC record that allowed the Hurricanes to finish No. 1 overall in the ACC – Coastal division. Miami is facing some pretty severe offshore sportsbook odds this weekend which isn’t all that surprising considering that they’re facing the reigning ACC champions as well as the reigning national champions. The Hurricanes haven’t faced Clemson this season but Miami is coming off a disappointing 14-24 upset to the unranked Pittsburgh Panthers that undoubtedly knocked this program out of playoff contention. It’s certainly a shame too, considering the kind of season the Hurricanes delivered.

It would be ill advised to bet against Clemson this weekend as there’s no question that your best sportsbook option is to back Clemson. Whether you decide to back the Tigers on the money line or the spread is entirely up to players. However, considering the odds that Clemson is facing straight up, bettors might be better off sticking with the spread. The Tigers are 7-4-1 against the spread on the season while their opponent has posted a 5-6 record ATS themselves. Almost all online betting sites are offering a -350 payout on Clemson straight up and a -110 payout for backing Clemson on the spread.

Betting Clemson

No. 1 Clemson entered this year’s season as the reigning national champions but most sportsbooks for US players had mixed feelings about the Tigers’ success in 2017. For no other reason than the fact that Deshaun Watson had made the move on up to the NFL and bettors weren’t quite sure what to expect out of Clemson’s offense. However, Dabo Sweeney proved his worth by putting together one of the best offenses in the game once more. The Tigers enter this matchup riding a 5-game win streak and will be looking to solidify their spot in this year’s playoffs by picking up their 3rd consecutive ACC title this weekend.

In addition to the vast difference between these two’s rankings, there are some slight differences in both team’s averages that should give Clemson the upper hand this Saturday. The Tigers come in with the better offensive unit as they’re putting up 35.2 points and 457.9 yards in each game while Miami is scoring 31.9 points and gaining 422.9 yards. Defensively Clemson has an even bigger advantage as they only give up 13.6 points and 283.3 yards while the Hurricanes are allotting 18.3 points and 362.4 yards to their opponents.
