Behind the box score: CFB betting lessons from Week 6

By Adam Burke  ( 


Now that the Alabama Crimson Tide have fallen victim to whatever is in the water in college football this season, bettors are really wondering which teams they can trust the rest of the way.

Using the box scores as a guide to find some of those outlier performances or team trends that we can try to use in the next game or next few games might be one of the best weapons we have against this season.

It may make more sense moving forward to bet on things like team totals instead of spreads and game totals with the high degree of variance we’ve seen this season. Keep digging for opportunities and you’ll uncover enough gold to stay comfortably in the game.

Each week brings us some results to analyze. Let’s do that and close the book on Week 6 so that we can head into Week 7 with some angles to consider going forward.
