*Point spreads for recreational purposes only.  That said, three ACC home teams are favored (at least by the bettors) to win – Maryland is a slim favorite over WVU. We assume that’s merely home field advantage.  Clemson is a four point favorite over Auburn.  Seems like that is big Tiger loyalty combined with Auburns not so fast start.  Finally, Miami over Ohio State by 2.5…Really. We don’t understand that one unless the Miami alums are bigger bettors than the Buckeys?
