The Las Vegas and Offshore Sportsbooks don’t use against the spread wins and losses when it comes to the team win totals in their college football futures. There is talk about how the new redshirt rule change could affect ATS lines especially in non-conference games this season. NCAA Football 2018 Regular Season Team Win Totals (June 27).

The NCAA announced last month that Division I football players are now allowed to play in up to four games in a season while keeping a redshirt and not losing a year of eligibility.

Due to a rule that has been in play for years the governing NCAA powers-that-are previously considered a redshirt expired once a player participated in even one live snap of any regular season contest.

The American Football Coaches Association have been pressing hard for the NCAA to install this rule change for the past two years.

How can this ruling impact an against the spread number, both what the oddsmakers install and sports investors take or give on game day?

Alabama head coach Nick Saban gives us personal testimony on how this could create ATS issues especially in non-conference games with large point-spreads.

“I absolutely would be in favor of that,” Nick Saban said in a presser at the SEC’s spring meetings, this two summers ago, in 2016. “One of the most difficult things for players is they can’t play at all when they’re freshmen to be able to gain a redshirt year. They all want to play.

This would give them an opportunity to play some and would actually enhance their development to some degree. With the numbers we have right now and the number of games we’re playing, you might be able to play a few more players in some of those games. That would help other players on your team as well.”

Within college football, this rule could create a large number of player personnel situations, that manipulate what an individual plays in relationship to total games.  For example and hypothetically of course; in late game non-conference contests with the Crimson Tide leading by three-plus touchdowns it would allow Saban to give a young quarterback playing time. That on field action for a young player getting experience in a blowout win is realistic.

Again, a player has up to four games as noted, to receive live game time at the college level, and still keep his or her eligibility to redshirt. The result of that young players performance could well make a difference in the final score, both positive and/or negative. Hence, making an against the spread difference at game’s end.
