College football win totals are among the best value bets. Here’s how you should bet the over/under win totals bets for every ACC football team.
The Clemson Tigers remain the owners of the ACC and likely will be conference champions once again in 2020. With Dabo Swinney getting Trevor Lawrence back for his junior season and running back Travis Etienne spurning the NFL to return for his senior season, the Tigers are the heavy favorites with Ohio State to get to the national championship.
Is there any competition they’ll see in the ACC? Based on the college football win totals for the ACC, it’s looking like the oddsmakers envision another down year for the conference.
All college football win totals for the ACC come from Caesars Sportsbook.
ACC football win totals (Atlantic)
Boston College – 5
Over: As long as they don’t lose again to Kansas, I think Boston College reaches bowl-eligibility in the first year under head coach Jeff Hafley and hits six wins.
Clemson – 11.5
Over: This is easy. No one is beating Clemson in the regular season. If they lose at all this year, it won’t be until they meet a team like Ohio State in the College Football Playoff. The road game at Notre Dame is the toughest game on the schedule but the Fighting Irish just don’t match up with the Tigers.
Florida State – 7.5
Over: I might just be that much of a fan of Mike Norvell that he leads Florida State to eight wins. It’ll hinge on the road game with Miami and season finale at home vs. Florida. They have to split these and have things go their way with the rest of the schedule, but I think it happens.
Louisville – 7.5
Over: There’s bound to be some natural regression from last year’s team but coach Scott Satterfield won’t let it drop Louisville below eight wins. This is a good program bouncing back and should be getting better each week. Getting FSU and Virginia at home helps.
NC State – 4.5
Under: Could be a rough year for NC State if they don’t sweep beat Mississippi State in Week 2. The ACC isn’t a gauntlet, but this could be a year where getting two wins in the league is too much.
Syracuse – 5.5
Under: Syracuse should go 4-0 in the non-conference part of the schedule but this could be like NC State where winning more than one league game is asking too much. Dino Babers is likely looking at a five-win season.
Wake Forest – 7
Under: This number is way too high for me after Wake Forest saw quarterback Jamie Newman transfer to Georgia. I don’t think they’d even hit this number with him this year.

Duke – 5.5
Over: The non-conference schedule should mean Duke only needs to win two ACC games this year to hit on the over and get bowl-eligibility. Blue Devils head coach David Cutcliffe will find a way to get that done.
Georgia Tech – 3
Under: It’s going to be another long fall for Georgia Tech football fans. Gardner-Webb is really the only win you can chalk up right now. There is likely to be a win here or there they’ll pull an upset, but in the best-case scenario, it’s a push.
Miami – 9
Under: This is a pretty lofty number for a team that’s been known to disappoint for the better part of the century. The schedule sets up nicely though for Manny Diaz and the Canes. Pitt, North Carolina and Florida State come to Miami and Michigan State should be a gimme in the non-conference part of the schedule. I can’t go over this high number though so it’s more likely they lose a game they shouldn’t and hit eight wins.
North Carolina – 8.5
Over: I love what North Carolina is doing under Mack Brown. Quarterback Sam Howell is one of the best young passers in the game. Even with a game at UCF and a neutral-site game with Auburn to start the year, UNC should hit nine games because of the soft ACC.
Pitt – 6.5
Under: This is a tricky one and I’d rather steer clear of betting on it at all. Pitt gets Notre Dame and Virginia Tech but I don’t see home-field advantage being enough to go 2-0 there. 1-1 is possible because Virginia Tech is so inconsistent under Justin Fuente. But the rest of their toughest ACC games are on the road which will make it tough to hit seven wins. They’ll be good to win one game they have no business winning though.
Virginia – 6.5
Under: There will be some regression for the reigning Coastal champions. UNC, Miami and Louisville come to Charlottesville and they’ll need to go 2-1 in those for a chance to hit the over. I don’t see that happening for Bronco Mendenhall’s team. Opening in Atlanta vs. Georgia is a challenging draw that could keep them from hitting this win total and from making a bowl game.
Virginia Tech – 8
Under: This is a high number for the Hokies who have been wildly up and down under Fuente. Virginia Tech will need to go 3-1 vs. UNC, Louisville, Pitt and Miami to get to eight, but that’s tough to expect because only the game with the Canes is at Lane Stadium.
