Clemson Tigers | -714 to Win ACC Title
Clemson heads into the 2021 season without superstar quarterback Trevor Lawrence under center for the first time since the 2017 season. Saying that losing Lawrence hurts Clemson is an understatement. Lawrence threw for 10,100 yards in his three seasons with the Tigers.
D.J. Uiagalelei will try and fill Lawrence’s massive shoes in 2021. Uiagalelei looked solid in 2020 when Lawrence was down with Covid-19. Uiagalelei completed 66.7% of his passes for 914 yards. He threw five touchdowns to zero interceptions.
Uiagalelei currently has the second-best odds to win the Heisman this season at +1100. He’s just behind Oklahoma quarterback Spencer Rattler who is at +650.
With the losses of Travis Etienne, Amari Rodgers, and Cornell Powell, the Heisman candidate will have to create chemistry with his new offensive weapons quickly.
Action247 Sportsbook has the Tigers’ odds to win the ACC at -714. Their odds to win the National Championship are at +525. Their regular-season win total is set at 11.5, with the over at -130. They start their schedule ranked #2 in the latest AP Poll.
North Carolina Tar Heels | +1000 to Win ACC Title
The Tar Heels are coming off a fantastic 2020 season. They finished 4th in the ACC behind Notre Dame, Clemson, and Miami. Their overall record was 8-4, and they were 7-3 in ACC play. Mack Brown has turned NC into a football school.
North Carolina ended their 2020 campaign with a top 10 offense in the FBS. They averaged more than 40 points per game.
Junior quarterback Sam Howell returns under center to lead the Heels’ offense in 2021. Howell completed 68% of his passes for 3,586 yards last season. He threw 30 touchdowns to only seven interceptions.
In 2019, Howell ended up with 3,641 yards and 38 touchdowns to only seven interceptions. His first two seasons have been immaculate.
