Hey guys, was wondering if any of you have ever heard of/played this college hoops system. I recall someone posting it, but it was years ago; goes something like this:

1. Must be a conference game
2. You always play on the home team
3. Visitor must be ranked in the top 25
4. Visitor must be favored

So essentially, you play on home dogs vs. top 25 opponents. I am going to track it starting Saturday January 2nd. I will post the plays if anyone is interested in following......

Happy New Year to a great group on this forum

If playing today, Santa Clara +15 vs Gonzaga would be a play.

What rankings will you use? The AP didn't have Gonzaga ranked while they are 25 in the USA Coaches poll. That's where I said they would have been a play.

Last season this system went 64-73, but only playing +14 1/2 > went 12-1. I use the USA coaches poll. And yes, Santa Clara was the 1st play of the year. Year before last, the system also lost, but +14 1/2 > was a winner.

Since Ken is posting starting tomorrow, today's play would be Stanford +4 vs Utah. Just for testing purposes. Had a winner yesterday on Santa Clara. Maybe there is something to that +14.5 or more stat!

Good morning and Happy New Years guys. For the record, we will use the AP top 25 for all plays. The only filter I'm adding from the original post is we will play only those dogs receiving < 50% of spread bets (throw a little fade the public in there). With that said; we have five plays today:

Kansas St. +4
Minnesota +10
Boston Coll +15
Northwestern +4
Creighton +7.5

For tracking purposes, will play one unit per game. Obviously, shop around and find your best line. Any comments, good or bad, are certainly welcome. Lets see what happens! Good luck to us.

Yes sir, I had K St. at +5, so a 2-3 start; lets see what today brings. I mentioned yesterday shop these lines, half-point and point variances huge in ncaa hoops and NBA. Back later with Sunday plays.

Sunday 1/03; two plays:

Arizona St. +3.5
Wash St. +4

Watch these lines, may move a bit in our favor when the west coast wakes up and pounds Arizona and UCLA even harder. Good luck today guys with all your plays.

1-1 Sunday, leaving us 3-4 to this point. Arizona State had a chance to stay within the number, but the two Hurley T's in the last minute killed that. Back with today's plays a bit later.

Excuse me if I am reading this incorrectly, but according to these numbers and the way I am interpreting them, the ideal way to play this would be
1. Top 25 team playing away against non top 25 team.
2. Bet on top 25 team if favoured by 0-14pts

According to the numbers posted this would have gone 72-52 last year. 58%

They way I see the numbers, you are correct. 72-52 if betting ON the top 25 team as a road fave. Make it 84-53 (61.3%) if you take the dog only at +14.5 or more.

bottom line: 5-5 with momentum
