Home Comforts

We are all familiar with the phrase "home field advantage". It's important in all sports, particularly college football. For some NCAA teams, it means six or seven points to them just by playing in their home stadium.

Being at home means you don't have to travel. Your facilities are usually far superior to visiting teams. You know every nook and cranny of the field and any tough sun or lighting angles.

Crowd Play Their Part

When playing within the conference, all the teams are accustomed to the weather. At this time of year, where some conferences are almost finished with their campaigns while others are just beginning, none are experiencing their usual non-conference creampuff matchups.

Without a doubt, the biggest advantage is playing in front of a friendly crowd chanting your name and noise levels not affecting your offense at the line. Some stadiums have 80,000, 90,000 and even over 100,000 screaming fans shaking the very foundation.

With the current health crisis, some teams will not have any fans in attendance, some will be allowed as few as 1%, and some will have as many as 15,000 to 20,000. This can change from week to week. So, you must be aware of which teams will have more friendly faces in the stands, as it will affect the lines and the outcomes.

Things Have Changed

One thing’s for sure, I would watch some of these home teams that are still going to receive padded lines by the oddsmakers. Maybe home field advantage isn't worth what it normally is this season. The oddsmakers know that the public usually leans on home teams therefore, they pad the lines a bit for those that are playing host.

In the past, home teams do well in college football but with no fans in the stands and no real traveling disadvantages, the public would be wise to start leaning on the visitors. At least in this peculiar season.
