NCAA Football and NFL Notable Trends

October 2, 2020

Bo Nix vs Georgia

As we head into week 5 of the college football and week 4 of the NFL, we look at a few trends which you can use to make your picks/bets.

Trend Betting

Trends can be a nice way to make money if you catch them before they end , of course. One thing that you should pay attention to is how many players and /or coaches has a team turned over in that period of time. Also, how young is the team? How inexperienced is the QB? And if you are betting the opposite team, ask yourself , do you want to bet against the opposite side of a trend? Some handicappers ignore trends altogether. We think they have some validity but are definitely not a sure thing. They should be considered when betting a game but not relied upon totally.
