Week 1 College Football Bets 2015: Sportsbook Betting Trends

College football kicks off Thursday, September 3 with two 6 ET starts, South Carolina vs. North Carolina and Florida International and Central Florida. Several public consensus-betting trends have emerged.

A significant harmony among bettors is laying the big number on the road with TCU getting 80 percent of the bets as they are laying 14-points with five-to-ten cents extra juice. At some sportsbooks the line is (-14.5). As is often the case, college football gamblers are not hesitating to bet a big number with 78 percent of wagers on Arizona laying a stunning 31.5 at home to UTSA.

The two other spread bets also seeing at least 70 percent of wagers are both large road favorites. Oklahoma State (-24) after opening at (-19) is supported by 72 percent of picks at Central Michigan. Likewise Ohio (-8.5) is getting 70 percent at Idaho. There is a reverse line movement on that though as the Bobcats opened as double-digit favorites laying a full 10 points. The line movement is significant as 10 is considered a key number by gamblers.

Percentage wise the strongest bet of the day is Florida International and Central Florida to exceed the total with 88 percent of bets saying the game will have more than the low posted over/under of 46.5.

The aforementioned OSU-CMU contest also has handicappers making a statement on the total with 77 percent putting their money where their mouth is expecting more than 54.5 points to be tallied.

Perhaps the most significant line move has been Vanderbilt going from a 2.5-point home favorite to Western Kentucky to a two-point underdog.
