Tom’s Early Season Rested College Power

Every athlete needs some time off.  The grind of practices and preparation can become taxing especially on a young college football player.  The rest allows all the bumps and bruises to heal, sends a young man home to see his family and allows an individual to be a college kid even if it’s just for a few days.

Of course, a week of rest to a sports handicapper means only one thing – money!

The Team Stryker Database is a powerful tool.  When used effectively, profitable technical situations can be uncovered that have been working successfully for the past 38 years.  You can ask the Team Stryker Database almost anything.  Earlier in the week, I decided to take a look at how college football teams did early in the season when playing with rest.  Here is one of my better discoveries:

Since 1980, PLAY ON any game four or less college football home favorite that is playing with rest provided they check in off a straight up road win.

38 Year ATS Record = 64-38-1 ATS for 62.7 percent

This Week’s Play’s = FRESNO STATE & NEW MEXICO

As I’ve said so many times before, time off is one of sports handicapping’s most powerful tools.  In this case, we have a rested home team returning off a momentum-building road win that is now lined up against an opponent that they are favored to beat.  This system is simple, makes perfect sense and just cranks out winner after winner.

There is one way to make it better.  If our “play on” host is coming off a strong offensive showing and scored more than 25 points in their last outing, then this solid system tightens up to a lucrative 51-20-1 ATS for 71.8 percent.  Both Fresno State and New Mexico apply to this special tightener.

Best of luck with the Bulldogs and the Lobos on Saturday and be sure to hang on to this elite college system for future plays!
