The Atlantic Coast Conference saw some upheaval in 2021 with Pittsburgh emerging as champion after defeating Wake Forest, marking the first time since 2014 that a program other than Clemson won the conference.
However, the ACC has returned to its regularly-scheduled programming with the Clemson Tigers now favored over North Carolina in this year's championship game.
Here are the latest college football odds to win the 2022 ACC championship.
Odds to win the ACC championship
Favorites to win the ACC championship
Clemson Tigers (-250)
Despite a couple of pretty ugly defeats to Notre Dame and South Carolina this season, Clemson consistently remained the team to beat in the ACC.
The Tigers locked in the top spot in the ACC Atlantic a few weeks ago and secured their spot in the title game with North Carolina in what projects to be a matchup of offense vs. defense.
North Carolina (+250)
The aforementioned North Carolina Tar Heels also secured their spot in the title game after an impressive road win at Wake Forest in Week 11.
And while they've lost back-to-back games to Georgia Tech and NC State since then, the Tar Heels can put the finishing touches on an encouraging season with an upset victory this weekend.

Understanding college football futures odds
Sportsbooks release college football futures odds pretty much as soon the clock hits zero in the previous season's national championship game. There are many ways to wager on NCAA football futures but we'll use picking the outright winner of the national championship — definitely the most popular — as our example.
During the offseason and preseason, you'll be able to get a plus-money price on basically any team in the nation as there is so much uncertainty around what will happen next year.
NCAA football championship odds will usually look like this:
- Alabama Crimson Tide +125
This means that on a $100 bet, you'll stand to win $125 if the Crimson Tide win the national title. If it's close to the end of the regular season and there is a particularly dominant program, you might see that a team is has a minus sign (-) ahead of its odds.
- Georgia Bulldogs -145
This means that if you bet on Georgia you would need to bet $145 to profit $100 if the Bulldogs won the championship.
Of course, futures odds are a fluid market. They can change every day based on news, injuries, suspensions, transfers, etc. In college football there generally isn't too much movement in the futures market during the offseason, but once the season begins, look for huge changes week-to-week based on wins and losses.
