Forewarned is forearmed, however, when it comes to ‘playing on’ these 5-0 clubs as Game Six is often times a major chuckhole on the road the the BCS title game for these Fat Cats. That’s confirmed by the fact that, since 1980, these teams are 222-100-6 SU and 130-168-4 ATS overall. Hence, the bubble bursts better than 30% of the time in Game Six situations for teams that start the season on a 5-0 note. Alabama, Auburn, LSU, Michigan, Michigan State, Northwestern, Ohio State, Oregon, and TCU will all take the field this week looking to improve to 6-0 this week.
Best of all, these particular Fat Cats who won 7 or more games last season, taking one a one or more loss foe, are just 12-34-1 ATS when playing off a win of 7 or more points and back-to-back ATS wins, including 1-13-1 ATS if the opponent is off a loss of seven or more points.
As one of our all time favorite bands - the Traveling Wilburys - once said, it just might be the ‘End Of The Line’ for the Auburn Tigers this weekend. Stay tuned.
