Sportsbook.com provides sports bettors with the very best College Football 2011 Week 1 trends.

While college football had its own set of off-the-field issues this past offseason, one thing we could all be sure of was that the university presidents and athletic directors would not be locking out their student-athletes and the season would begin as scheduled the first week of September. Our summer school project was to examine Week 1 results from the last three seasons. Here is a list of 10 situations for Week 1 games that have proven to be very profitable.

NOTE: All stats are based on Week 1 results from 2008-2010.  If a school played its first .game of the season in Week 2, that game is not reflected in this study.

The Pro Bowl is always a fun event to watch because it features the best of the best and probably at least one or two of your favorite players. The feeling for many is that this event is not taken seriously enough by the players, but we think that’s bogus. Why? The NFC has won the four of the last five meetings and they want to keep the streak alive having won three in a row. The stage is set for a showdown among the games best in Orlando and it all starts a 3:00 PM Eastern on ESPN/ABC. The online bookies are making this one fun with all of the great prop odds and even the live wagering will certainly be a feature as well. The line is set at Even odds and a total of 51.
