Finally, a winning weekend in college football! We went 8-2 overall, including 4-1 on “Big Plays”, 1-1 on “Other Plays”, and 3-0 on “MP Leans”. Our big plays are now well in the positive. If only we could somehow just forget about the other plays… We also did very well with the line moves, beating the closing line by 1.05 points.
This week is our lightest yet for college football. Some lines moved our way since Monday, and knocked some games off. I have been prohibited from listing Texas as a play, despite what our numbers say.
The other half of Massey-Peabody, a Texas alum, had this to say: “We would have liked Texas +14 vs. Oklahoma, but for one of us being 100% sure that Texas will lose by at least 20 and refusing to have ANYTHING to do with the 2013 Longhorns. Other than THAT, it’s all objective, rational analysis around here.”
We also are scratching Utah State, which the numbers say is a big play, due to the injury to Utah State star QB Chuckie Keaton.
Lines are widely available as of 2:30pm EDT on Wednesday. As usual, we don’t account for injuries or matchup factors. In cases of major injuries, we are just scratching plays entirely.
