  • Clemson is a huge favorite over Pitt in the 2018 ACC Championship Game, which kicks Saturday at 8 p.m. ET in Charlotte.
  • Oddsmakers list the Tigers at -24, which was bet up almost three points after Pitt looked anemic against Miami.

Clemson-Pitt Betting Odds

  • Spread: Clemson -26.5
  • Over/Under: 55.5
  • Date: Saturday, Dec. 1
  • Time: 8 p.m. ET
  • TV: ABC

Oddsmakers list Clemson as a 26.5-point favorite over Pitt in the ACC Championship Game, just another example of the Tigers’ dominance over the conference this season. The line opened -21.5 a few days ago, and was -24.5 on Sunday.

Pitt is 7-5 overall but 6-2 in conference play. Clemson, on the other hand, hasn’t had an ACC game decided by fewer than 20 points besides a narrow win over Syracuse in which quarterback Trevor Lawrence got hurt in the first half.

This is the first time Pitt and Clemson will meet since the Panthers upset the Tigers 43-42 in 2016 before Dabo Swinney’s team went on to win the national title.

ACC Championship Game Betting History

This will be Clemson’s fourth-straight ACC Championship Game appearance, and the Tigers have won the previous three. Last year’s game was the first blowout in that span — a 38-3 romp of Miami.

There was only one season where the ACC Championship Game did not featured Florida State, Clemson or Virginia Tech — 2006, when Wake Forest beat Georgia Tech 9-6.
