College Football 2011 Week 1 Trends

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.

1.In all games with extremely high totals – over 60 – the UNDER is a whopping 12-3.

Potential plays for 2011: UCLA AT HOUSTON, WESTERN MICHIGAN AT MICHIGAN, SOUTH CAROLINA AT EAST CAROLINA, TULSA AT OKLAHOMA

2. In all games with very low totals – 43 or under – the OVER is a strong 8-2.

Potential plays for 2011: NONE

3. When the road team is favored by between 10 and 20 points, these away teams are a near perfect 9-1 ATS.

Potential plays for 2011: SOUTH CAROLINA, KENTUCKY

4. When the home team is favored by between 20 and 30 points, home teams are a solid 15-8 ATS.

5. SEC teams hosting non-BCS schools are an impressive 9-2 ATS.

With the Big 10 and PAC 12 officially cancelling their college football slate this fall, one has to wonder how this will impact the sportsbooks bottom line.  Of course, attempts to play in the spring would likely more than make up for any losses down the road.
