VSiN Analytics College Football Report for Week 11

The following is a collection of analytical data, betting systems and strength ratings featured on VSiN and qualified for the college football games of Week 11. This report is meant to emulate the process that Steve Makinen and other members of the VSiN Analytics team undergo when handicapping each week’s college football board.

 

Strategies using CFB DraftKings Betting Splits data

One of the most touted features on the VSiN.com website, and a feature that we believe to be a fantastic resource for bettors, is the Betting Splits pages. These are the pages that we have built utilizing the data that DraftKings so graciously provides to us detailing the breakdowns of the money & ticket splits for point spreads, money lines, and totals. In an article published in the 2023 College Football Betting Guide, Steve Makinen outlined 13 different systematic strategies for successfully using the DK Betting Splits Data that developed in the 2022 season. Here are the systems and qualifying plays for this week’s games (records are shown heading into the 2023 season). These can and will change, so continue to track and qualify the systems up until kickoff for best usage. There will be an updated betting splits article on Saturday morning.

DK Betting Splits system #1: When 80% or more of the handle was on a particular side of an ATS wager, this majority group was just 40-47 ATS (46%). In other words, if you saw the big green lights on the VSiN betting splits handle page 80% or higher, it was best to fade it.

System Matches (FADE ALL): BOWLING GREEN, LOUISVILLE, UNLV, IOWA STATE, OKLAHOMA STATE, CALIFORNIA, GA TECH, HOUSTON, ALABAMA, VANDERBILT, MISSISSIPPI ST, NORTHWESTERN, TEXAS STATE, GEORGIA STATE, MICHIGAN, LIBERTY, NAVY

 

DK Betting Splits system #2: When 75%+ of the number of bets were on a particular side of an ATS wager, this majority group was just 66-76 ATS (46.5%). Again, if you see the big green lights on the VSiN betting splits # of bets page 75% or higher, it was best to fade it.

System Matches (FADE ALL): OHIO, BOWLING GREEN, MIAMI (OH), OKLAHOMA STATE, HOUSTON, KANSAS, ALABAMA, GA SOUTHERN, TEXAS, NC STATE, WASHINGTON, MEMPHIS, MICHIGAN, LIBERTY

 

DK Betting Splits system #3: When the majority of the handle was on road favorites for an ATS wager, this majority group was just 58-85 ATS (40.6%). More recreational bettors love road favorites because they are usually the better team. The point spread is the great equalizer.

System Matches (FADE ALL): OHIO, BOWLING GREEN, VA TECH, IOWA STATE, OKLAHOMA STATE, ARIZONA, ALABAMA, GA SOUTHERN, TEXAS, NC STATE, TEXAS STATE, MEMPHIS, MICHIGAN, TROY, PITT, AIR FORCE

 

DK Betting Splits system #4: Similarly to #3 above, when the majority number of bets was on road favorites for an ATS wager, this majority group was just 59-75 ATS (44.0%). Bet volume usually covers more public action, and again, recreational bettors love road favorites but don’t typically fare well long term.

System Matches (FADE ALL): OHIO, BOWLING GREEN, IOWA STATE, OKLAHOMA STATE, ALABAMA, GA SOUTHERN, MARYLAND, NC STATE, TEXAS STATE, MEMPHIS, MICHIGAN, TROY, PITT, FRESNO STATE, AIR FORCE

 

DK Betting Splits system #5: When the majority of the handle was on road underdogs for an ATS wager, this majority group was 100-82 ATS (54.9%). Now, 54.9% is less than the usual systems I like to present to readers, but this is a nice advantage against the usual majority win rates and goes to show that being on the “smart” side of the majority handle can pay off. Remember, a higher handle feels less “public” than higher bet counts.

System Matches (SLIGHT PLAY ALL): EASTERN MICHIGAN, SOUTHERN MISS, NEW MEXICO, GA TECH, EAST CAROLINA, OLE MISS, DUKE, MINNESOTA, VANDERBILT, TEMPLE, MISSISSIPPI STATE, NORTHWESTERN, SAM HOUSTON, NEVADA, FIU, ARKANSAS STATE

 

DK Betting Splits system #6: When the majority number of bets was on road underdogs for an ATS wager, this majority group was 98-75 ATS (56.6%). This is even better than the handle numbers in #5 and suggests that following public bettors getting behind road dogs can be an actionable strategy.

System Matches (PLAY ALL): NEW MEXICO, GA TECH, INDIANA, DUKE, MINNESOTA, VANDERBILT, MISSISSIPPI STATE, NORTHWESTERN, RICE, SAM HOUSTON STATE, NEVADA

 

DK Betting Splits system #7: When the majority of the number of bets backed a team in an ATS wager in non-Saturday games, their 2022 season record was 72-46 (61%)! This goes to show that public bettors can be better performers with fewer games to choose from. A lot of times, their mistake proves to be taking too many games on a Saturday.

System Matches (PLAY ALL): OHIO, NORTHERN ILLINOIS, W MICHIGAN, BOWLING GREEN, MIAMI (OH), TOLEDO, LA LAFAYETTE, LOUISVILLE, SMU, UNLV

 

DK Betting Splits system #8: When the majority of the handle backed the team with more season wins in an FBS vs. FBS contest for an ATS wager, this majority group was just 100-131 ATS (43.3%). More than not, bettors like to back the “better team” in a matchup, regardless of what the point spread indicates. Again, the point spread is the eternal equalizer.

System Matches (FADE ALL): NORTHERN ILLINOIS, OHIO, BOWLING GREEN, MIAMI (OH), LOUISVILLE, SMU, UNLV, MICHIGAN, ALABAMA, KANSAS, TULANE, ILLINOIS, LIBERTY, JAMES MADISON, ARIZONA, NC STATE, MEMPHIS, GEORGIA STATE, TROY, KANSAS STATE, FLORIDA STATE, WASHINGTON, OKLAHOMA STATE, IOWA, FIU, MINNESOTA, ARKANSAS STATE, OREGON STATE, OKLAHOMA, HOUSTON, GA SOUTHERN, OHIO STATE, TEXAS, LSU, UTSA, UCLA, AIR FORCE

 

DK Betting Splits system #9: When the majority of the handle backed a team in an FBS vs. FBS contest for an ATS wager, but the line moved towards the opposite team, this majority group was just 38-49 ATS (43.7%). This can be a tricky one to avoid, as it can be referred to as a trap in booking circles. The theory is that the more money a team gets on it, the more likely the line moves toward that team. This is the opposite scenario, and usually, the public loses.

System Matches (FADE ALL): NIU, W MICHIGAN, E MICHIGAN, MICHIGAN, ALABAMA, KANSAS, NEBRASKA, VANDERBILT, MEMPHIS, NEVADA, JAMES MADISON, W KENTUCKY, MINNESOTA, MISSOURI, WASHINGTON, OKLAHOMA, DUKE, TEXAS, W KENTUCKY, AIR FORCE

 

DK Betting Splits system #10: The average college football total last year was 54.5. In games where the totals reached 57 or higher and odds makers thus expected them to be a little more explosive when the majority handle bettors favored the Under, they were relatively sharp, going 35-21 (62.5%). This is rare, as it occurred in only 56 of 776 games.

System Matches (PLAY UNDER): NEW MEXICO-BOISE STATE, OKLAHOMA STATE-UCF, VANDY-SOUTH CAROLINA, TEMPLE-USF, TEXAS STATE-C CAROLINA, RICE-UTSA, NEW MEXICO STATE-W KENTUCKY

 

DK Betting Splits system #11: On games with totals of 45 or lower, 70%+ super majority handle bettors siding with the Under were 15-8 (65.2%). Because not many public bettors embrace betting Unders, this didn’t produce a lot of plays, but the super handle majority were sharp.

System Matches (PLAY UNDER): BALL STATE-NIU, AKRON-MIAMI (OH), IOWA STATE-BYU, ECU-FL ATLANTIC, RUTGERS-IOWA, MARYLAND-NEBRASKA, MISS STATE-TEXAS A&M, ARIZONA STATE-UCLA, NC STATE-WAKE FOREST, NORTHWESTERN-WISCONSIN

 

DK Betting Splits system #12: On games with totals of 45 or lower, 75%+ supermajority number of bets bettors bucking the low total and siding with the OVER were 22-13 (62.9%). Again, not a ton of plays here, but the more public option of the number of bets was pretty good when going against the grain.

System Matches (PLAY OVER): BOWLING GREEN-KENT STATE, AKRON-MIAMI (OH)

 

DK Betting Splits system #13: On games where the handle has a majority on totals and the number of bets has the opposite majority, the majority handle plays went 112-93 (54.6%). This could be described as more sharp action being displayed by the majority handle.

System Matches:

(PLAY OVER when there are opposite majorities and HANDLE favors OVER)

(PLAY UNDER when there are opposite majorities and HANDLE favors UNDER)

College Football Revenge Systems

Since the start of the 2016 season, neutral-field underdogs playing in revenge mode have gone 43-26 ATS (62.3%).

System Match: PLAY SYRACUSE (+2.5 vs Pittsburgh)

 

Revenge teams that lost as double-digit favorites last time out

Teams looking to avenge outright losses where they were double-digit favorites have struggled, going just 96-113 ATS (45.9%) since 2016.

System Match: FADE CENTRAL MICHIGAN (+3 at Western Michigan)

 

Current won-lost records are a good indicator of revenge chances

College football teams seeking revenge and having at least four more wins on the season than their opponent have been very successful, going 85-14 SU and 66-29-4 ATS (69.5%) since 2016.

System Matches: PLAY BOWLING GREEN (-9.5 at Kent St), PLAY TEXAS (-9.5 at TCU)

 

Key stats of the team seeking revenge matter

Better defensive teams are more successful in exacting revenge than prolific offense. Since the start of the 2016 season, teams allowing 24 PPG or less have gone 597-535 ATS (52.7%) as compared to those scoring 35 PPG or more, 354-383 ATS (48%).

System Matches: PLAY LA LAFAYETTE (-10.5 vs. Southern Miss), PLAY SOUTH FLORIDA (-7 vs. Temple)

 

College Football Systems Based Upon AP Poll Rankings

The following college football betting systems take into account whether or not teams in a non-neutral field game are ranked in the AP poll.

CFB AP Poll Rankings System #1 – Games featuring two ranked teams

In games featuring two ranked teams since 2017, home teams are now 164-79 SU and 140-95-8 ATS (59.6%).

System Matches (PLAY ALL): PENN ST, WASHINGTON, MISSOURI, GEORGIA

Digging deeper into that data, you will find that when the home team has been ranked better, those teams have gone 99-17 SU and 73-39-4 ATS (65.2%).

System Matches (PLAY ALL): WASHINGTON, GEORGIA

Adding another point spread wrinkle to the last angle, when better-ranked home teams have been single-digit favorites or underdogs, they have gone 52-14 SU and 46-17-3 ATS (73%) since 2017.

System Match: PLAY WASHINGTON

 

CFB AP Poll Rankings System #4

In college football games featuring two ranked teams, with the home team being a double-digit favorite, Under the total boasts an impressive 35-14 (71.4%) record since the beginning of the 2017 season. When adding a qualifier of totals higher than 56 to that system, the Under record jumps to 21-6 (77.8%).

System Match: PLAY UNDER in Ole Miss-Georgia (o/u at 58.5)

 

Extreme Stat Next Game CFB Betting Systems

Unexpected blowout games are bad future indicators for both teams

Both college football teams coming off a game that was decided by a margin of 38 points or more different from the final point spread, either win or lose, have struggled in the next contest, going just 123-168 ATS (42.3%) over the last decade-plus.

System Matches: FADE AIR FORCE (-19 at Hawaii), FADE ARMY (vs Holy Cross), FADE UTAH (+9 at Washington), FADE ARIZONA STATE (+17 at UCLA)

 

Dismal offensive performances carry over

College football teams that gained 100 yards or fewer in a game have not bounced back well in the next, going just 22-33-1 ATS (40%) in their last 56 tries.

System Match: FADE ARIZONA STATE (+17 at UCLA)

 

Not taking advantage enough of turnovers can be a red flag

CFB FBS teams that benefitted from a +5 turnover differential or greater but failed to score 44+ points in that game have responded by going just 35-52 ATS (40.2%) in their next contest since 2012.

System Match: FADE ARMY (vs. Holy Cross)

 

Ride teams off of uber-dominant performances

Over the course of the last decade, CFB teams that scored 58 or more points in a game while allowing fewer than 10 have carried on the momentum well in the next outing, going 132-94 ATS (58.4%).

System Matches: PLAY NORTH CAROLINA (-13 vs Duke), PLAY TENNESSEE (-1.5 at Missouri)

 

Playing well offensively but losing a good sign for next outing

College football teams that lost a game as an underdog despite gaining 550 or more yards on offense have bounced back well lately, going 59-38-2 ATS (60.8%) over the last 10 years.

System Match: PLAY SOUTH FLORIDA (-7 vs Temple)

 

Conference wins while struggling offensively are momentum-builders

Over the last decade, college football teams that won a conference game despite gaining less than 250 yards of offense have used that victory to build momentum, going 69-40 ATS (63.3%) in the follow-up contest.

System Matches: PLAY NC STATE (-2.5 at Wake Forest), PLAY STANFORD (+21 at Oregon St), PLAY IOWA (-2 vs Rutgers)
