Everyone piling on Baylor, yet the line is starting to drop.

This fits nice...

Play AGAINST BAYLOR against the spread in All games versus good offensive teams - scoring 77+ points/game.

The record is 0 Wins and 7 Losses for the last two seasons

BYU +3.5**


3 very strong trends backing...

E CAROLINA at WEBER ST. Under

Bought 146.5** on Sunday

E CAROLINA +5** (First Half)

Cant see why a trend that is 0-7 is a good thing.

I see it reads like that, but the trend isn't 0 - 7, Baylor is.

I also cut down the verbiage since it was long with other details that fit the contest.

FWIW

I don't make wagers solely based on trends. I cap a contest and then look at trends to decide if I do invest and how strong I invest.

Sorry for the confusion.

Good Luck

I assumed that is the case based on your posts I have been reading for several weeks. You seem too thorough to be betting on trends-only (leave that to boneheads like me!)

Thanks for the info man, very appreciated.

Good observation, but it's not the case. I may note a trend with the pick, but I didn't invest in the team based on the trend alone.

If you won day in and day out wagering based on trends alone, well the statfox staff would all be millionaires.

Now with SYR this weekend the game fit well with my opinion and factors I use. The trends only pushed my wager higher. It didn't determine the wager it self.

With most sports I look at several factors...

Look at the line
Look at my Power Ratings
Public perception in setting line
Specific team stats
Watch real time live movement
Wager percentages @ Vegas books only
Betting trends

Only a small % of my bankroll is invested on team sports. I'm more of a horse player.

Sorry Bromoe, I was intending to agree with you there.
