Navy this year has not looked good in a lot of games.  ASU is also very inconsistent.  ASU has the D Line to stop the option and an offense that can put up a lot of points on Navy's suspect defense, but I could also see Navy winning or losing by 3 points.  I probably won't be betting this game for more than 5 bucks.

But with systems, it is usually the play you like the least that covers easiest, and if Navy falls behind they could get blown out.

Bob, just checked my power ratings, and they agree with you.  They would have this line at ASU -9.5

Ill be all over navy +14. They might even.win su in my opinion. Sun Devils don't look to great and navy will get some confidence going into the bowl season after the spanking they lay on the black knights

don't forget the dark-shirted uniforms rule ...

( I'm sure those threads are still around somewhere )

Agree Thorpe I will lay off this game as well.. A big key to ASU stopping the trip option will be the health of DT Will Sutton.. Hes an absolute animal and means more this this team than any other player. All in all sounds like a pass on this one

Thorpe, great insight. I see SJSU is one of your top 3. Which schools make up the other top 3 for you?

I think there is some really good value in this analysis - obviously not to win every game - but I think you ll do pretty well

Rule 2 and rule 6 don't work together...
Is there any SEC teams that are underdogs?

First rule that applies.  So, only take the underdog where rules 1 through 5 do not apply.

Very interesting.  Do you run this method every year or just specific to this year's games?  I went back to my spread sheet from last bowl season and would have racked up a lot more games.

Very interesting perspective...and I wish you the best of luck with it.  But MY OPINION ONLY and not rapping at all, but I don't see it even busting even. I'm wrong alot  

Every year everyone loves the SEC.  Doesn't Vegas know that?! I will agree they're the cream of the crop, but look at ATS records last 3 years...4-5 in '09-10, 5-5 in '10-11, and 5-2 last year (wont count ALA-LSU).   53.8% not gonna put any money in your pocket.  The SEC upper tier...do you want to lay double digits in a Bowl Game,  I don't. And the others...Vandy, ISU, ole Miss, Miss St..you can have them...

Again, best of luck. Hope everyone makes money.

If you told me SEC would be at worst 4-5 I would take that up front. 

The SEC is football 12 months a year, so they are usually peaking for their bowl game, unlike other schools who have moved on..

How about the school with the hottest cheerleaders angle? 

Still good, or has it petered out?

I agree with that,  and do think upper tier SEC is the class of college foots. Can't deny that. But winning Bowl games and covering double digit spreads do not go hand-in-foot.  The spread records are what they are.
Good luck, win a bunch
