|A look Inside The Stats shows us a total of 9 FBS teams won games but were out-gained in the contest last week. Meanwhile, there were 5 more teams in the NFL that did the same thing. The phoniest wins were recorded by Cincinnati (-151 yards) and South Florida (-151 yards) in college football. ON the NFL side the Carolina Panthers (-16 yards) led the way with the most deceiving “inside-out” win … It’s the time of the season where teams with better defenses step up to the forefront. Better yet, underdogs with 100-plus yards the better defense. There are three such dogs on this week’s card that sport 100-plus yards defensive advantages against their favored opponent, namely: Kansas State, UAB and Western Kentucky. Play accordingly. |

Our NBA history book reminds us Atlanta is 24-8 SUATS when hosting Sacramento, including 13-0 SU and 12-1 ATS when the Kings are coming off a loss. Toss in the Hawks’ 5-0 ATS mark at home when coming off a home loss of 20-plus points and you can see where we’re going here.
