The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


By Marc Lawrence — From this week’s red-hot Playbook Football Newsletter: According to our well-oiled machine, it appears Game Four of the College Football season is often times a critical stepping-stone for teams who play with a week of rest.

This is especially true for teams that are either playing at home off a win, or conversely, on the road off their first defeat of the season. Check out these numbers:

When these reinvigorated home teams take the field off a win with a week of rest in Game Four of the season, they are a super-strong 98-66-2 ATS overall since 1980. South Alabama finds itself in this desirable role on Saturday.

Digging deeper, when these same teams are seeking revenge against a division opponent they improve to 34-9 ATS, including 22-4 ATS versus .600 or greater opponents – which is all good news for the Jaguars this week.
