Analyzing NCAA Football Spreads Part 1: Team By Team Comparison Over The Past Five Seasons

August 31, 2014

The following is Part 1 of a six part analysis on certain factors that are perceived to influence a bettor’s decision when wagering against the spread (ATS) on NCAA football games. Specifically, I have constrained my analysis to games involving at least one team from the NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS). These studies look at past trends to assess expected future behavior. Consequently, no weight is placed on current rosters, coaching staffs and matchups.

From 1998 through 2013, the FBS included six conferences referred to as Automatic Qualifying Conferences (AQC). Each year, AQC champions qualified automatically for a Bowl Championship Series (BCS) bowl. The six AQC conferences included the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC), the American Athletic Conference (a derivative of the Big East), the Big 10, the Big 12, the Pac-12 and the Southeastern Conference (SEC). In Part 1, I look at how each AQC team has performed straight-up and against the spread over the past five college football seasons (2009-13).
