I continue my series of top trends by looking at the betting angles that have formed on the bowl teams as they closed their regular seasons. Despite the fact that only teams .500 or better are typically invited to bowl games, not all teams go into their bowl games playing well. Others are peaking.
In a soon-to-come lengthy bowl game article that I call my Seven Motivational Factors Checklist, I dedicate one factor, #7 this year to be specific, as Summary of Season, and in it, I describe how teams that had a better or worse than expected body of work this season fare in bowl games.
I even share some very successful betting systems pertaining to this logic. The lists below are a little different in that they take a more “what have you done for me lately” approach. I don’t have any stellar systems to back them up, but I can tell you this. The 14 teams I listed on the HOT list a year ago went 11-3 SU and 9-4-1 ATS in their respective bowl games. The teams I listed under NOT were 8-12 SU but 11-9 ATS. Concerning totals, the 12 teams I shared on significant Over runs went 9-3 Over the total, while those 10 on Under runs were 8-2 Under for the bowl season. Perhaps there is something to this logic. We’ll follow along again this season.
Take a look at the following lists of trends, detailing the hot & not teams, as well as those that are currently on definitive totals runs.
