This is such a comprehensive question that I am going to hit the highlights only. Football Betting and changed a bunch and most primarily when lines become available and WA, which is much earlier now than back in the day. There are also many ways one can bet. I can remember the days when there was not such thing as Totals for the Game. Now you can bet Team Totals, Halftime Totals, 1 Quarter Totals, etc..
Lines now come out late Sunday and one of the things we will be doing as in the past is getting on some of these ASAP before sharp bettors have the time to beat us to it. We will then come back with more on game day as numbers change and plays that were not worthy due to the betting line earlier in the week are now..
Certainly getting pertinent info is important and timely and even in today's world it is possible to get some of that even well before most others. I use the word "WE" because I do have a strong info partner and I do have what I consider to the best THE strongest Database Guy on this Planet. We chat Sunday evening, Tuesday morning, and again Thursday about what we know, what we do not, and what we want to know. That which we want to know we research...
I am a believer that Volume is insignificant in one respect and that is that Large Volume does not always equate to large earnings. Having said that we most always have large volume than most because we are on top of more than most. It's the Ole 3 Heads are better than one thing so we are able to find more +EV opportunities..
As always I will put a number of alternative betting plays on Twitter and some on here as well as those are not allowed in our pick format but do offer great opps and in some cases the best one's. It's going to be another fun year and just saying that gives me Goosebumps..
There will be as always a Heavy Concentration on Totals and we will almost almost get the best number or close to it. I would guess that the Totals/Sides Percentage would be somewhere in the 58%/42% range this year like previous years have been. On occasion we will Buy Back a Total Play based on some info obtained and in some cases we will add to an existing play for the same reason..
There will be No concentration on a particular conference. Many think that because I live in Memphis that I know the SEC better than other conferences but that is just not the case. I do have some really good ties to the Sunbelt though and we should do very well playing Sunbelt games due to that. Otherwise because of the way that we do what we do, you can expect plays from Coast to Coast..
I could go on and one but that should give you guys some idea of what to expect for this college and pro season..
