Football Betting Statistical Matchups Ahead of Bowl Games, Playoffs

PricePerPlayer.com offered up a piece this past week on the importance of understanding football betting statistical matchups before placing a wager.

The main statistics most handicappers rely on are:

    rushing yards per game

    passing yards per games

    points per game

    yards per rush

    first downs

    time of possession

“These stats would be tabulated for both offense and defense,” PricePerPlayer.com notes. “Once all the information is gathered, the handicapper can then compare the statistical averages.  He will then use it to make a prediction on which team has advantages in the different statistical categories.”

The example they give is the Pittsburgh Steelers averaging 120 rushing yards per game on 4.5 yards per carry going up against a Cleveland Browns team that has a defense allowing 135 rushing yards per game on 4.8 yards per carry.

Such a system can prove critical for the upcoming College Football Bowl games and January’s NFL Playoffs.

“The football handicapper could assume Pittsburgh would have a pretty good game rushing the ball.”

The average bettor doesn’t go through these motions and often times oddsmakers have a better grasp on what should happen based on such an analysis, enough so to move the line in such a way that goes against public sentiment in hopes of realizing a greater profit.  PricePerPlayer.com acts in this capacity, running one of the largest Pay Per Head platforms in the world.
