|Lies, Damned Lies, And Statistics:|
As stated previously, stats don’t lie. People who interpret them do. It’s on to Week three of 2019 NFL season and Week Four in CFB. With it teams are beginning to take form – some of it good and others not. Take for instance: Wyoming is 3-0 SU this season but 0-3 ITS (In The Stats). Meanwhile, BYU and Colorado are 2-1 SU and 0-3 ITS, while Tennessee is 1-2 SU and 3-0 ITS. For more on the condition of NFL and College Football teams this season click here.
From this week’s Playbook Football Newsletter: Florida International is 10-2-1 ATS as a conference road dog off a double-digit win, and 8-1 ATS when facing an opponent with a winning record.
Grinding Out The Profits
Get On Your Horse : The fact that USC is 12-4-1 ATS as a 3 or more point underdog and also 5-1 SU at the L.A. Coliseum in conference home openers is significant considering the Pac-12 has six teams ranked in the Top 25 for the first time in almost four years. A win tonight likely puts Southern Cal back in the Top 25. A nod to the avenging Trojans tonight.
