Puttin’ on the Stats
by Marc Lawrence
With Halloween now in the rear view mirror, it’s on to the best time of the College Football season – the month of November! That’s because the combination of stats and angles combine to bring us the best winning edges of the year.
Our ‘Puttin’ On The Stats’ theory is a dandy, and best of all it’s simple. What we are looking to do is to ‘Play On’ any team as a dog if they’ve won all – or all but one – of their games ITS (In The Stats) heading into November. Conversely, we will look to ‘Play Against’ any favorite that has lost all – or all but one – of their games ITS.
As we head toward Thanksgiving, here’s our list from our sister publication – the MIDWEEK ALERT - of ‘Play On’ (as dog) and ‘Play Against’ (as favorite) teams to fatten up on for the balance of the 2009 season:
Play On dogs: Alabama, Boise State, Cincinnati, Florida, Fresno State, Houston, Nebraska, Penn State, South Carolina and TCU.
Play Against favorites: Colorado, Eastern Michigan, New Mexico State, Rice, San Jose State, Washington, Washington State and Western Kentucky.
There you have it! Pass the gravy and let the feast begin...
