Players to watch
Cade Klubnik, QB, Clemson: The QB-in-waiting at Clemson has a very real chance to take over the program sooner than later. Should DJ U repeat his 2021 season, Klubnik will be forced in like Trevor Lawrence over Kelly Bryant lately. However, it likely won’t be in the first four games as Clemson draws a cakewalk.
Tyler Van Dyke, QB, Miami: The Hurricanes found their step once making Tyler Van Dyke the starter last year; they won five of their last six including a game over surging Pitt. TVD threw for nearly 3,000 yards and 25 touchdowns in his eight starts and Miami scored at least 28 in every game he started (at least 30 in six of those).
Devin Leary, QB, NC State: The ACC is a very quarterback-heavy conference this coming season. Perhaps the most ready to take a massive step forward is NC State’s Devin Leary. He led returning QBs in completion percentage and average yards per attempt in 2021, two proven metrics of players prepared to jump onto the national stage. He returns the entire offensive line– a very good unit– and most of his weapons from a year ago.
A.T. Perry, WR, Wake Forest: Without his star QB, Perry’s value to the team increases. As a third-year sophomore, he racked up over 1,200 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns (18.2 yards per reception). Whoever steps in at QB can lean on Perry in a conference with subpar secondaries across the board.
Bryan Bresee, DL, Clemson: Bresee is an All-American candidate this season, anchoring what coaches say might be the best Clemson DL ever. He missed most of 2021 with an injury, but likely would have been an All-ACC selection as a freshman.
Calijah Kancey, DL, Pitt: He recorded 13 tackles for loss and seven sacks as a sophomore en route to being named to the AP third team All-American team in 2021. Kancey is expected to be a first-round NFL Draft pick next April.
Jammie Robinson, SAF, Florida State: As a freshman, Robinson led FSU in tackles and interceptions and landed on the All-ACC team. He was moved to a nickel position over being a floating safety, a move that not only kickstarted his season, but helped turn around FSU’s defense as a whole.
Myles Murphy, EDGE, Clemson: To be named Clemson’s best DL ever, there has to be multiple great players. Playing alongside Bresee is Myles Murphy, another All-American candidate. Last year, he led the Tigers in tackles for loss (14) and sacks (seven) as a sophomore.

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 +1000 doesn’t mean they all do– Caesars Sportsbook may offer the same prop at +1400, 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.
