Great info and guidelines for the novice like me, the guy who gave me the South Dakota St. Play versus Alabama really knows that conference and team, Summit League I think it is.  He gave me a team total prop and side.  I teased KY and won so I know I am flawed in my betting as far as the standards you have mentioned.  I have found reasonable success with cappers on these various forums and also have found some success with money line parlays involving many sports.  I hope to follow your advice this CBB season and go against Hawaii in CFB and the baskets may be a different story as they were rather impressive last nite with a rebuilt roster with two returnees.  Bereton and Vanderbilt will be the go to guys this year.  They seem to have found a point and some wings, new conference in the BIg West will help.  The big guy from New Zealand has some bulk and hops, Fotu!

I have been following KP for a couple years now. Always good to read and tail. I like the unbanked plays. Valpo, furman, for example. Always good options with teams like that. I also like Ivy League Fridays! Tons of opportunities on Fridays throughout the season. I wish I had more time to really study but I don't. For this reason guys like KP are worth checking into everyday. Stick to one philosophy and play it. KP it my daily read

Been following you for a couple of years now.  Love your insight.  You really help me to decide whether to give a play a longer look or not.  

As you've said, most of your plays seem to be not the "marquee" matchups, but value-based in conferences that the linesmakers may not have a good read on.

In trying to determine the relative strength of a team, what statistics guide you that "yeah team A is great", or "team B is 8-1 but they really aren't as good as their record suggests"..... like these smaller conferences are hard to find on tv, and while when I see a team I can determine if their good, bad, ugly, etc... but stats-wise, I have a hard time determining what are the most important factors to focus on.... I know KenPom has the beast of all stats....

Would love to hear your insight on which stats help determine which team has value between Team A and Team B.... and if it's one of those obscure stats, what it actually tells us...

Thanks for all your work, my friend!  Good Luck
