Friday Night Football Betting Report: Money Lies With Favorites

College football will always have a few games scheduled to entertain our Friday nights. For us, that's just more opportunity to earn profit to tack on extra cash to our weekend slate of bets. But, in order to do that, our bets need to hit. 

So, we've done the dirty work of digging through this season's NCAAF Friday Night game trends. Bet smarter, not harder!

NCAAF: Friday Night Games' Betting Result and Profits
Favorites' SU40-5+$937.64
Favorites' ATS31-13-1+$1518.21
Home SU21-24-$1439.02
Home ATS25-19-1+$372.75

Through 13 weeks of the season, the favorites have dominated on Friday. The last four weeks have seen the favorites lose outright just once. 

Leaning towards the favorites is the where all the profit is. You'd be up over $900 if you hammered the favorites moneyline each week. The profit is equally as enticing ATS, where the favorites have raked in over $1,500 worth of profit so far. Referring to our underdog betting report, it seems the favorites have been holding down the fort so far in 2023. 

home advantage doesn't exist on fridays 

Clearly looking for a home crowd edge doesn't make any significant difference on Friday. The home teams have gone 21-24 and are down a good chunk of change (-$1439.02). So, stick to the trends that are working in the chart above. Guess the students have night classes to attend instead of a football game. 

nCAAF Friday night games: conference Championships

Well, the college football slate may be smaller but it sure is more intense. Conference championships are here and we've got two to watch this Friday:

new mexico state vs no. 24 liberty

The Conference USA Championship pins the New Mexico State Aggies (10-2 SU, 11-1 ATS) against the Liberty Flames (12-0 SU, 8-4 ATS). The Aggies are 12-point underdogs and have covered each line in 10 consecutive weeks, where they were 'dogs in six. 

Despite being undefeated and heavy favorites, according to, only 50% of cash has been placed on the Liberty's spread. The Flames offense is on fire, averaging 40.1 PPG (ranked 5th). With the total set at 57, our computer picks are confident the OVER will hit. 

no. 5 oregon vs no. 3 washington 

The Oregon Ducks (11-1 SU, 9-2-1 ATS) and Washington Huskies (12-0 SU, 5-6-1 ATS) meet in the highly competitive Pac-12 championship. When they last met, the Ducks fell by three-points (36-33) to the Huskies. Now, Oregon are 10-point favorites with QB Bo Nix becoming a serious Heisman Trophy favorite. 

The total is set at 65.5 points, which hit the OVER in the October meeting. Washington (38 PPG) and Oregon (42 PPG) sit in the nation's top 10 for scoring. Our computer picks have the Ducks winning outright and covering the double-digit spread.
