Anyone interested in reading some some odds on winning the ACC Title? Well here they are:
-- Florida St. Seminoles +120
-- Virginia Tech Hokies +300
-- Clemson Tigers +400
-- Miami Hurricanes +1000
-- Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets +1000
-- North Carolina Tar Heels +1200
-- N.C. State Wolfpack +1200
-- Virginia Cavaliers +1700
-- Wake Forest Demon Deacons +2000
-- Boston College Eagles +3000
-- Maryland Terrapins +3000
-- Duke Blue Devils +5000
Some interesting odds here. First Boston College is near the bottom in terms of chances to win the whole thing. Not a big surprise there, as I think we can all agree that you would have to be a terrible gambler to put your money on the Eagles this season.
Secondly, I kind of like the Clemson odds here. A healthy Tahj Boyd, stacked defense and possibly the best wide receiver in the country make them an intriguing bet. Until Florida State can show that they can make it past the perennial disappointing loss, they are hard to bet on. Great recruiting year or not. And of course Virginia Tech is always a safe bet.
Looking at the middle and bottom half of the odds list gives some interesting choices as well. Miami at +1000? That seems like a terrible bet especially with all the rumors swirling that the team is a giant mess right now. Now if I wanted to take a long shot maybe I would throw some money at Virginia or NC State.
Who would you bet on?
