- In college football's first games, it has been profitable to bet on bowl teams from the previous season.
- Using Bet Labs, we explore how this applies to Arizona vs. Hawaii.
The wait is over. The 2019 college football season kicks off on Saturday with two games. In the marquee matchup, No. 8 Florida takes on Miami (7 p.m .ET) in an in-state matchup. The nightcap features Hawaii hosting Arizona in Honolulu (10:30 p.m. ET).
According to The Action Network’s live odds page, we are tracking nearly twice as many tickets on Florida-Miami as Arizona-Hawaii. This is not surprising, as casual bettors love wagering on games featuring a ranked team, but the public shouldn’t overlook the late game as there is a profitable against-the-spread (ATS) system that points to value on Arizona-Hawaii.
