Win Division (+115), Win Conference (+650)
SSA Model Pick: Conference (Low Confidence)
The Hurricanes had an amazing 10-0 start last year but reality set in as they dropped their final three games. Richt has a talented team and they are the clear favorite in the Coastal. With 14 starters back a return to the ACC title game is likely, but is not guaranteed.
Win Total Analysis
9.5 wins (-125/+105)
SSA Model Pick: Under (High Confidence)
While the Hurricanes start the season ranked in the top 10, they are underdogs against LSU week 1. A home game against Florida State will be a challenge and road games against Boston College, Georgia Tech, and Virginia Tech will be difficult. It’s likely that this will be a 9-3 season for the Hurricanes.
