Caesars Sportsbook has installed Clemson as a giant -600 favorite to win the ACC championship game. The Tigers are the second-largest preseason favorite in a Power 5 conference since 2010, behind only the Clemson team of last season (-650).Clemson's season-win total opened at 11.5 at Caesars Sportsbook, this means the Tigers are favored to complete a third straight unbeaten regular season. Clemson's win total is the highest in the nation.
Jeff Davis from Caesers tells ESPN.
Clemson is the favorite, but Ohio State and Alabama are higher up in his power ratings."We would make both Ohio State and Alabama small favorites over Clemson if they were to play today," Davis said. "Clemson has the shortest odds strictly because of their schedule."
Clemson faces Akron, Notre Dame, The Citadel and South Carolina in nonconference play. Clemson is a touchdown favorite over the Fighting Irish in early point spreads for the Nov. 7 showdown in South Bend, Indiana.
Clemson and Ohio State are the only two odds-on favorites to win their conference title games in the Power 5. The Buckeyes are -140 at Caesars Sportsbook to win the Big Ten championship game, followed by Penn State (+450) and Wisconsin (+550).Alabama, at +125, is the favorite in the SEC for an 11th straight season. LSU, last year's national champion, opened at +800 to win the SEC, behind four teams at Caesars Sportsbook. Georgia (+350), Florida (+400) and Auburn (+600), along with Alabama, have better odds than LSU.
Oklahoma (+150) is the favorite in the Big 12, and Oregon (+200) is the early favorite in the Pac-12.
