A Great College Bowl Statistic

December 20, 2018

You could have had a huge “Return On Investment” the last three(3) years by identifying Underdogs who covered.

Because 66.04% of the underdogs who covered won their games outright!

One more thought….
One of my biggest “pet peeves” are those reposting on forums(politics or sports) without checking facts.

On Monday, I made the mistake of backing the Saints to cover.

The majority of my analysis focused on the Panthers inability to score. I was right, but never thought that New Orleans would have such an anemic offensive output.

Anyway…. later I read many posts from handicappers with great “20/20” hindsight, advising that it’s foolish to back an out of town favorite, because they never cover.

So…. I did the research.
Your Figures for 2018:
33 Home Dogs Covered
30 Home Dogs Didn’t.

Absolutely NOT enough to make this one of your handicapping angles.

Do your Homework.
It does pays off in the long run.
