Nice start but it implies spreads in the 15 and up range are less efficient than they really are, and short numbers are more efficient than they are.  Like the NBA, 1 is worth the least 

You want a handicapping tip?  Spend as much time getting a good number as you do researching games. Depositing/withdrawing/depositing/withdrawing is a pain, but I guarantee you will lose less, or win more.  I can't guarantee that for any other piece of advice

I dont think that's what he meant by "key number".  Good grief.....

I believe the only key number in basketball is NBA #7....CBB might have some %'s that make sense, but nothing stops teams from fouling down 15 with 10 seconds left..So the #7 to some might carry value in CBB, but i look at it much much less than NBA 7.
