ACC Underdogs Are Red Hot in College Football Betting

  • ACC underdogs were .500 through Week 3.
  • Louisville leads the ACC with four ATS underdog wins.
  • There are five ACC underdogs in Week 7.

Sam Hartman connected with Taylor Morin on a 39-yard touchdown pass to give Wake Forest a 7-0 lead over Virginia just three minutes into their Week 4 game in Charlottesville. The Demon Deacons never lost control en route to a 20-point win that comfortably covered the spread of +3.5.

That game was the start of red-hot college football betting streak for ACC underdogs.

Entering Week 4, ACC underdogs – in conference and non-conference games – were riding a three-game losing streak against the spread (ATS) and had failed to cover in six of the last nine games, a stretch that included Wake Forest preventing Florida State from covering +4.5 in a 21-point win in Week 3.

Since Week 4, ACC underdogs are 13-2 ATS. From the Wake Forest-Virginia game through the Syracuse-Florida State game two weeks later – in which Syracuse covered +5.5 in a three-point road loss – ACC dogs had a seven-game cover streak. And after covering in all four games in Week 6, they enter Week 7 with a six-game cover streak.

Even with the slow start, ACC underdogs are 19-8 against the spread this season, the best record among all conferences:

Syracuse will attempt to extend the six-game ATS streak in Week 7 against Clemson. The Orange, on Friday night at home, are +14 as of Tuesday, Oct. 12. There are four other ACC underdogs this weekend:

  • Duke +10.5 (at Virginia)
  • Miami +7 (at North Carolina)
  • Virginia Tech +5 (vs. Pittsburgh)
  • Boston College +3 (vs. North Carolina State)
