The latest ACC Conference Championship Odds are out from the Westgate Las Vegas Superbook. Who’ll win, what’s the best long shot and what’s the best value?

Virginia Tech 8/1
Georgia Tech 30/1
NC State 40/1
Wake Forest 50/1
Boston College 60/1
North Carolina 60/1
The Right Play
Clemson: Even at 1/2, it’s going to to take something miraculous for anyone to keep the Tigers from making it four straight ACC championships. There might be an ACC loss along the way, but there won’t be two.
The Best Value
NC State: Last year’s team was much, much better, and the Wolfpack have to go to Clemson, but at least that comes off an open date. There’s no Miami or Virginia Tech from the Coastal to deal with, and the Florida State game is at home. At 40/1, it’s a better non-Clemson value than Virginia Tech at 8/1.
Stay Away From …
Miami: There’s just not enough value at 3/1 to go for it. Clemson is probably going to win the ACC Championship again, and the Canes have to go to Virginia Tech late in the season. In terms of going for a better value pick, the Hokies at 8/1 are stronger and even Florida State – if it catches Clemson on the right day – is a better flier at 7/1.
The Top Longshot
North Carolina: After suffering a slew of injuries and not getting much of anything offensively in a rebuilding year, the Tar Heels should bounce back and be dangerous. There’s no Clemson or Florida State on the slate and Virginia Tech is a home game after a week off. At 60/1, it’s a flier, but don’t be shocked if Larry Fedora’s team makes a massive comeback.
