|2018 ACC STANDINGS|
Virginia at Virginia Tech (Fri. - ABC, 3:30 p.m. ET)
How's this for a role reversal? In recent seasons it was Virginia entering this rivalry game needing a win for bowl eligibility. They're well in line for a bowl, but the Hokies are just 4-6 heading into the final game, with perhaps a chance to appeal for a bowl with a win, since they had one game was canceled due to weather. UVA is 4-1 ATS in the past five ACC games, and 8-3 ATS in the past 11 games overall. The Hokies are 0-4 ATS in the past four at home, and 0-6 ATS in the past six overall. The Cavs are 4-10 ATS in the past 14 meetings, and 2-6 ATS in their past eight trips to Blacksburg. The favorite is 11-5 ATS in the past 16 in this series, while the under has hit in six of the past eight.
Georgia Tech at Georgia (SEC, 12:00 p.m. ET)
The Bulldogs roll into this one as a 17-point favorite as of Wednesday morning. Both teams are bowl eligible, but it would be a nice feather in the cap for each to push aside their rival. Ga. Tech is 5-2 ATS in the past seven, and 7-3 ATS in their past 10 non-conference tilts, but they're just 2-5 ATS in the past seven against winning teams. UGA is 9-2 ATS in their past 11 against teams with a winning record, while going 11-5 ATS in the past 16 overall. Ga. Tech is 5-1-1 ATS in their past seven trips to Athens, while the road team is a whopping 17-4-1 ATS in the past 22 in this series. The under has connected in five of the past seven overall in this rivalry, too.
Florida at Florida State
(ABC, 12:00 p.m. ET)
The Seminoles of FSU have been to 36 consecutive bowls, the longest streak ever, but they need a win against Florida to extend that run. Florida enters Tallahassee favored by six, at least as of Wednesday morning. The Gators are 1-5 ATS in the past six against ACC foes, but they're 11-5 ATS in the past 16 against losing teams and 4-1 ATS in the past five non-conference tilts. FSU enters 9-3 ATS in the past 12 non-conference battles, but they're just 3-9-2 ATS in the past 14 against winning teams. The road team has cashed in six of the past seven battles, with the favorite an impressive 16-5 ATS in the past 21 meetings. Total bettors might slam the under, which is 9-2 in the past 11 battles in Tallahassee, and 4-1 in the past five in this series.
Syracuse at Boston College (ESPN, 12:00 p.m.)
Both the Orange and Eagles are going bowling, but this game will likely determine their landing spot. Both teams could each be eight-win teams with a BC win, or the Orange could secure a ninth win and a much bigger bowl. The Orange are 8-3 ATs in the past 11 road games, and 7-3-1 ATS in the past 11 overall. The Eagles enter 12-3-1 ATS in the past 16 ACC battles, while going 15-5-1 ATS in the past 21 overall. In this series, the 'dog has barked in six of the past eight while the 'under' is 3-0-1 across the past four in this series.
North Carolina State at North Carolina (ACC Network, 12:20 p.m.)
The Wolfpack and Tar Heels do battle at Kenan, and lately this series has been all red. UNC has cashed in seven of the past nine against winning teams, however, while going 7-3 ATS in the past 10 ACC battles. N.C. State has connected in four of the past five trips to Chapel Hill, while the road team is 5-0 ATS in the past five in this rivalry. The underdog is also 15-5 ATS in the past 20 meetings in the series. The under has cashed in four of the past five battles, too.
Wake Forest at Duke (ACC Network, 12:30 p.m.)
Wake needs a victory to realize their bowl dreams, while the Blue Devils are already going bowling, but an eighth win might mean a much nicer payday. Vegas believes in Duke, as they enter as double-digit favorite despite going 1-4 ATS in five games at home this season. The Demon Deacons are 2-6 ATS in the past eight ACC battles, while going 1-7 ATS in the past eight against teams with a winning record and 3-10 ATS in the past 13 overall. Duke is poor against the number, too, going 0-4 ATS in the past four home games and 0-3-1 ATS in the past four against losing teams. While the road team is 5-1 ATS in the past six in this series, the Deacs are 1-6 ATS in the past seven battles.
Pittsburgh at Miami-Florida (ESPN, 3:30 p.m.)
The Panthers upended the Hurricanes last season in Pittsburgh. This year Miami tries to return the favor in South Florida, although it won't derail Pittsburgh on their way to a spot in the ACC Championship Game. Pitt has been hot, cashing in six in a row while going 5-2-1 ATS in the past eight road outings. Miami has hit against the number just twice in the past seven at home, while going 1-5 ATS in their past six ACC tilts. The U is also a dismal 0-6 ATS in the past six against winning sides. Total bettors might like the 'under', which is 10-1 in Pitt's past 11 road games, while going 8-3 in the past 11 against winning teams. The under is 4-0-1 in Miami's past five overall, and 4-0 in their past four against winning teams while going 12-3-1 in the past 16 inside the league.
South Carolina at Clemson (ESPN, 7:00 p.m.)
The Gamecocks arrive in the Upstate looking to ruin the season of their rivals, while the Tigers look to keep their foot on the gas. Vegas like Clemson, more than a 26-point favorite as of Wednesday morning. Both teams are already bowl eligible, but they'll be going to much different venues. The Gamecocks head into this game 7-1-1 ATS in the past nine road outings while going 11-4 ATS in the past 15 against the ACC. Clemson is 5-1 ATS in the past six games overall, while going 4-1 ATS in the past five against winning teams. However, the Tigers are just 2-5 ATS in the past seven at home, while going 0-4 ATS in the past four outside the conference.
Kentucky at Louisville (ESPN2, 7:00 p.m.)
The Wildcats head for Louisville trying to deal the Cardinals their 10th loss of the season. The Cardinals are hoping to salvage their season with a victory against their rivals. Kentucky is just 3-14 ATS in the past 17 non-conference battles, while going 1-8 ATS in the past nine against teams with a losing record. Louisville has managed to cover just six of the past 28 overall, while going 1-5 ATS in the past six battles at home. They're also a dismal 2-14 ATS in the past 16 against teams with a winning overall mark. Kentucky has an outstanding 4-1 ATS in the past five trips to Louisville, while the road team is 5-0 ATS in the past five meetings.
