Players to watch
QB Drake Maye: Maye comes into 2023 as a Heisman odds favorite after a breakout campaign in 2022. He tossed for over 4,300 yards and 38 touchdowns for UNC, whose offense ranked 27th in scoring (32.8 points per game). Despite losing top receiver Josh Downs to the NFL, Maye should again be one of the most productive arms in college football.
QB Jordan Travis: After taking a massive step forward in 2022, Travis returns to Florida State for another season. He returns alongside top receiver Johnny Wilson and a nation-leading 87% of overall roster production. That and the coaching continuity among Norvell and both coordinators vault Florida State to be the ACC favorite in 2023.
QB Riley Leonard: As a sophomore, Leonard exploded onto the scene and Duke took the college football world by storm. The Blue Devils won nine games despite having zero expectations under new leadership. Leonard tossed 20 touchdowns, rushed for 13 more, and led Duke to a resounding win in their bowl game against UCF.

How to bet on conference winners
When it comes to betting anything, we can’t stress enough how important it is to shop lines. Just because FanDuel Sportsbook offers Miami to win the ACC at +1400 doesn’t mean they all do– Caesars Sportsbook may offer the same prop at +1800, potentially increasing your payout. Here at TheLines, we pull all of the odds for you so you’re always getting the best price.
When it comes to betting on ACC futures, there’s several factors that weigh more heavily on college football than, say, the NFL:
- Returning production
- Coaching prowess
- Offensive line cohesiveness and depth
- Star quarterbacks
With major gaps in talent, the college football landscape looks very different from professional football. It’s important to note what factors do and do not matter at this level. For example, lots of emphasis is put on recruiting. While it is important, 2022 recruiting classes likely won’t see the field for another year or two and their impact won’t be felt for some time. Also consider which teams are good at developing talent and which are not; NC State is a program that’s always done a lot with lower-ranked recruiting classes whereas Miami is a team that consistently under-delivers despite signing some of the top classes in the nation.
