Rested NCAAF teams show profits in their fourth game
According to our powerful database, it seems Game 4 of the college football season is often times a critical steppingstone for teams who play with a week of rest.
This is especially true for teams that are either playing at home off a win or on the road off their first defeat of the season. Check out these numbers…
• When these reinvigorated home teams take the field off a win with a week of rest in Game 4 of the season they are a super-strong 69-40-1 ATS overall since 1980.
This week finds Iowa State, Oklahoma State, Purdue, UCF and Washington with smiles on their faces.
Dress these rested Game 4 hosts with a measure of revenge and they rocket to 25-9 ATS. And if it’s a conference revenge affair, they zoom to 23-3 ATS. With that, Washington will be looking to rise to new heights versus Stanford as a 7-point home underdog this Thursday.
• Meanwhile Game 4 rested road teams who find themselves off their first loss of the season show their muscle, having gone 19-9 ATS over the same span in this role. Indiana fits the bill, visiting Northwestern as a 13.5-point road underdog this week.
And finally, if these rested Game 4 road teams suffered an initial defeat as a favorite, they zoom to 12-1 ATS.
