The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing

SIMPLY THE BEST

By Marc Lawrence — NFL Nation points out the fact that there is still a ways to go until the season begins. So what better time to look back on the best betting season for all 32 teams? Its reporters gave their perspective on the best individual seasons against the spread for each team, using research from ESPN. You be surprised at what they learned. As an example, one has to go back to 1972 to find the best ATS season for the Miami Dolphins who went 11-2-1 ATS. They also just happened to be the only team to go unbeaten in NFL history.

2020 PLAYBOOK Football Preview Guide magazine reports: Yes, California won 8 games last season for the first time under head coach Justin Wilcox. However, red flags abound as they took several steps backwards statistically. Once again Cal struggled on offense and has now slipped each and every year under Wilcox’s lead. The once proud defense also dovetailed. Like a hearty micro beer, the Bears had been stout on defense but light on offense. As such Wilcox made changes to his offensive coaching staff. New offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave brings 20 years of coaching experience, including OC duties with five different NFL teams. Still, it works only if the defense snaps back. The good news is the Golden Bears improved from No. 129 to No. 14 in the nation in Turnovers Lost last season.
