College Football Week One Betting Trends
College football is back! We’ve waited almost eight months for it, and nothing is better than the beginning of the football season! The college football schedule has some great games to kick off the weekend again this year. Keep in mind that one week does not make a season, and all teams can have either exceptionally good weeks or especially bad weeks at any time.
The Georgia vs. Clemson game is the headliner of the week. Georgia enters as a tiny favorite, but Clemson is always really tough to beat in Death Valley. Alabama is a big favorite over Virginia Tech in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Classic.
BangtheBook has offered a trends to consider article during the baseball season, and now we’ll be having a college football trends to consider article during the football season as well. This will give bettors a good look at some of the most important trends to consider before placing a bet this week. Let’s look at trends to consider for games this coming weekend.
-The Mississippi Rebels are 2-10 ATS in their last 12 meetings with the Vanderbilt Commodores, but Ole Miss is getting a lot of love from the bettors as the line has moved in a big way since Vanderbilt opened as a small favorite. The Rebels are now favored by 3.5 points. Vanderbilt’s offseason trouble has had a lot to do with this line movement. These teams meet on Thursday night.
-The USC Trojans are 0-7 in their last 7 road games, but the Hawaii Warriors are also 3-12 ATS in their last 15 home games. Something has to give when these two teams meet on Thursday night in Hawaii.
-The Cincinnati Bearcats are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. They’ll have a new coach on the sidelines this Saturday as they host the Purdue Boilermakers. Purdue is just 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games, and they’ll have a new coach for this one as well.
-The Florida Gators are just 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games against a MAC opponent. They open at home against the Toledo Rockets this Saturday. This is Toledo’s first ever game against an SEC opponent.
-Louisiana-Monroe is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 road games. The Warhawks aren’t getting much respect from the oddsmakers as they are a 21.5-point underdog at Oklahoma this weekend. Oklahoma is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games.
-LSU and TCU meet up in a big battle at Cowboys Stadium on Saturday night. TCU is 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games at a neutral site. The under is 7-1-1 in the Horned Frogs last 9 games on a neutral field as well.
-BYU is 7-0 ATS in their last 7 games played in the month of August. They are also 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games and 14-6 ATS in their last 20 overall. Virginia is 2-11-1 ATS in their last 14 games, and the Cavs are 0-7-1 ATS in their last 8 home games.
-Northwestern was 12-1 ATS last season, and they’ll open at Cal on Saturday night. Cal is 0-5 ATS in their last 5, but they are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games against the Big Ten.
-Louisville is 7-15 ATS in their last 22 home games. The Cardinals have been good against the spread the last couple years, but that is largely because they are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 as a road underdog. Louisville is a home favorite in this Sunday matchup against the Ohio Bobcats from the MAC.
