The odds on the ACC Championship Game are out and Clemson opens up as a significant favorite over Notre Dame. Even though the Fighting Irish beat the Tigers in their meeting earlier this season, oddsmakers seem to believe that Trevor Lawrence’s return gives Clemson a sizable edge. Remember, Lawrence missed the first game between these two after contracting COVID-19.
First off, it is going to be a little strange seeing Notre Dame take part in a conference championship game, but the bizarre circumstances of 2020 have led us to this point. Here is what the current ACC Championship Game odds are on DraftKings Sportsbook.
ACC Championship Game Odds
|Notre Dame Fighting Irish||+7.5 (-108)||+250||N/A|
|Clemson Tigers||-7.5 (-113)||-360||N/A|

This will be a play-in game for the College Football Playoff. There is a slight chance that Notre Dame could sneak in with a close loss, but they would need a few things to break their way in order for that to happen. Clemson is looking to make the College Football Playoff for the sixth-straight season and win their third National Championship in five years.
Notre Dame has only made the College Football Playoff once since its inception (2018-19). Ironically enough, top-ranked Clemson smacked the Fighting Irish 30-3 in the Cotton Bowl. It’s safe to say that there are more than a few guys on the Notre Dame sideline who want to avenge that loss.
Notre Dame and Clemson are among the most talented teams in the country, but all eyes will be on the quarterbacks in this one. Ian Book recently became the all-time winningest quarterback in Notre Dame history this past weekend. Meanwhile, Trevor Lawrence is likely going to be the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft come April. We expect to see Book and Lawrence put up a ton of points in this one.
