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 2010 season:
Play On dogs: Air Force, Arizona, Auburn, Boise State, Central Florida, Florida State, Hawaii, Michigan State, Nebraska, Ohio State, Oregon, Southern Miss, TCU, Texas, Utah and West Virginia.
Play Against favorites: Akron, Eastern Michigan, Florida Atlantic, Louisiana Lafayette, Marshall, Memphis, Mew Mexico, New Mexico State, Rice, San Jose State, Tennessee, Tulane, UNLV, Washington State and Wyoming.
There you have it! Pass the gravy and let the November feast begin...
