Clemson at Syracuse (Fri. - ESPN, 7:00 p.m. ET)
The Tigers head to the Carrier Dome for Friday night action, and they're more than a three-touchdown favorite. The Tigers won last week, but failed to cover in a 28-14 win against Wake Forest. After opening 3-0 ATS, the Tigers are just 1-2 ATS over their past two conference tilts. They enter this game at just 2-6 ATS over the past eight on a field turf surface, too. For Syracuse, this is their bowl game, or a bigger game even if they should become eligible for the postseason. The Carrier Dome should be rocking for a rare primetime, national attention game.

Syracuse is 4-0 ATS over their past four against winning teams, 3-0-1 ATS across their past four outings and 5-1 ATS in their past six home outings against teams with a winning road record. However, they have managed a 1-4-1 ATS mark over their past six home games. If you like totals, you might like the 'under'. While the over is 6-1 in Clemson's past seven road affairs, the under is 4-1 in their past five overall, while the under is 10-1 in Syracuse's past 11 at home, and 13-3 in their past 16 overall, while going 8-1 in their past nine ACC games.

North Carolina State at Pittsburgh (ACC Network, 12:00 p.m. ET)
The Wolfpack continue to build their resume, and ever so slightly around Raleigh there are whispers of a potential ACC Championship Game appearance, and possibly a trip to the playoffs. It's not inconceivable if they can continue to tick off signature wins like last weekend against Louisville. And, of course, they must slay the dragon known as Clemson in the Atlantic Division. First things first, though, as they cannot suffer any additional losses along the way. N.C. State enters as a double-digit road favorite at Pitt. The Wolfpack are 4-0 ATS in their past four road games, and 5-2 ATS in the past seven inside the ACC. Pittsburgh enters a dismal 1-5-2 ATS over the past eight, 7-19 ATS in their past 26 at home and 0-4 ATS in their past four at home against a team with a winning road record.

Florida State at Duke (ESPN2, 12:00 p.m. ET)
This is just unchartered territory, as Florida State heads to Durham at just 1-3 SU and 0-3-1 ATS through four games. The loss of Deondre Francois in the opener really hurt the makeup of this club, which has also had their schedule interrupted by Hurricane Irma. The Seminoles were stunned in the final moments by rival Miami last week, and it will be interesting to see how FSU comes out on Saturday. Duke started out 4-0 SU/ATS and they weren't showing many chinks in the armor. However, they were exposed a bit in a 31-6 loss at home to Miami back on Sept. 29, and then Virginia edged them 28-21 last weekend in Charlottesville. One thing that has been consistent for Duke is the 'under', cashing in each of the past four outings. This is the first meeting between these schools on the gridiron since 2013, and FSU enters as a seven-point favorite with heavy public support.

Boston College at Louisville (ACC Network, 12:20 p.m.)

Louisville is looking to bounce back after a trip to N.C. State last Thursday went awry. They'll look to take out their frustrations on a Boston College team which hasn't put up much resistance in the ACC so far. The Eagles are also just 4-9-1 ATS over their past 14 conference games, although they are an impressive 7-1 ATS in their past eight on the road against teams with a winning home record. That includes a solid showing at Clemson earlier in the season before the national champs pulled away late. Louisville hasn't handled themselves well as big favorites, and they're 0-6 ATS in their past six at home while going a dismal 3-12-1 ATS over their past 16 overall. They also seem to play down to the competition, going 3-7 ATS over the past 10 against losing teams and 5-16 ATS over the past 21 home games against a team with a losing road record.

Georgia Tech at Miami-Florida (ABC, 3:30 p.m.)
This is a critcial game in the Coastal Division for both sides, and will put either in the driver's seat, or at least keep them in the hunt, for a potential appearance in the ACC Championship Game. That's a position that has eluded Miami ever since joining the league, as they have never won a divisional title in the ACC. The Yellow Jackets enter with an 8-0 ATS run over their past eight dating back to last season, and they're 4-0 ATS in their past four in the conference while going 4-0 ATS in their past four against winning teams. They're also 4-1-1 ATS in the past six on the road. Miami has been no slouch against the number, either, posting an impressive 6-0 ATS mark across their past six ACC games, including stealing one at Florida State last weekend. They're 10-1 ATS in their past 11 following a straight up win, 4-0 ATS in their past four against winning sides and 8-1 ATS in their past nine overall. They've protected their half-filled house well, too, going 4-1 ATS in their past five appearances at Hard Rock Stadium.

Virginia at North Carolina (ACC Network, 3:30 p.m.)
The Cavaliers and Tar Heels lock horns in Chapel Hill, and UVA looks to keep up their winning ways. UNC has been awfully banged up and they continue to search for bodies to fill the voids. Since a 34-17 humbling from Indiana back on Sept. 9, the Cavaliers have rattled off three straight wins and covers, including an impressive 42-23 win at Boise State on Sept. 22, and a seven-point win at home against Duke last weekend despite closing as short 'dogs. The offense is averaging a respectable 36.0 PPG over the past three outings, something the Tar Heels will have to be mindful about. UNC's SID would have an easier job posting who is 'not' injured before each week's games, as they have a laundry list of key guys on the sidelines. They haven't tasted victory since Sept. 16 at Old Dominion, and they have lost their first three ACC games by an average of by an average of 16.0 PPG. They were also thrashed by Notre Dame last weekend, 33-10, despite the fact the Irish were using a backup quarterback.
