So you're saying there is a chance

The Vegas insiders have come out with their first set of odds for 2015 conference champions, and let's just say the odds are not in BC's favor. According to SBNation, the Boston College Eagles have +3000 odds, which are only better than the Syracuse Orange and Wake Forest Demon Deacons. Let's look at what the odd makers are laying out:

Team Odds
Clemson Tigers +250
Florida State Seminoles +300
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets +400
Duke Blue Devils +800
Louisville Cardinals +800
Virginia Tech Hokies +800
N.C. State Wolfpack +1000
Miami Hurricanes +1500
Pittsburgh Panthers +1500
North Carolina Tar Heels +2000
Boston College Eagles +3000
Virginia Cavaliers +3000
Syracuse Orangemen +6000
Wake Forest Demon Deacons +6000

The odds makers seem to be a little hesitant to pick an overwhelming favorite near the top as Clemson, FSU and Georgia Tech are all pretty similar in odds. The loss of Jameis Winston from FSU and the rise of the young dynamic QB DeShaun Watson have to be one of the major reasons Vegas is leaning towards the Tigers. The Coastal Division odds are also a little more favorable because other than the Yellow Jackets the division is not as top heavy and anyone can win. Though I don't understand Vegas's fascination with Virginia Tech, a team that has underperformed for the past two seasons.

Boston College certainly will have their work cut out for them if they want to win the ACC, with games on the road against Clemson and Virginia Tech and a cross divisional game against Duke. All of this with a new quarterback and revamped offensive line. But then again Steve Addazio has shown a flair for the dramatic, anyone out there willing to take a chance on the Eagles?
