College Football Betting Odds: ACC Underdogs Include Syracuse Football

USA TODAY Sports

The Syracuse football program, the newcomers to the ACC this season, enter has heavy underdogs to win its division, according to oddsmakers at Olympic Sportsbook.

Late Tuesday night, Olympic Sportsbook released early-season odds for college football division winners and SB Nation's college football writers gobbled them up and put together a nice piece on them.

Included in the release was Syracuse football's new home, the Atlantic Coast Conference, which featured two clear-cut favorites in the Atlantic Division -- the Clemson Tigers (-135) and Florida St. Seminoles (-120). The Orange are slotted as a heavy underdog (+2500).

For those unfamiliar with money-line odds, a person would get paid $2,500, if he/she placed a $100 bet on SU to win the Atlantic, which also features: N.C. State Wolfpack (+800), Boston College Eagles (+1500), Wake Forest Demon Deacons (+2500) and Maryland Terrapins (+5000).

According to oddsmakers, Miami Hurricanes (+100) is the favorite to win the Coastal Division. The second favorite is North Carolina Tar Heels (+185) followed by: Virginia Tech Hokies (+300), Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (+500), Pittsburgh Panthers (+1200) and Virginia Cavaliers (+1500).

Now, I am not a betting man (I would be if I had the extra cash), but if I was, I would love to lay down $100 on Scott Shafer and the new-look Orange. Granted, Shafer can't come out and confuse opponents by using a 2-3 zone, but the ACC isn't the SEC when it comes top-tier talent. If you're going to take a chance, I'd take it with the Orange.
