    Looks good, usma. Can tell you put a lot of work into this.

    Game I'll have my eye on = Okla/Texas. Sooners have not yet had a high-profile game. Sooners look live to me.

    Minn is bad. If this game lands 25-1, I'll send you a c-note:

    7:30 PM MICHIGAN 25 MINNESOTA 1

    That is definitely and interesting game. I think in my next iteration of the model... I am going add an elimination of the over bet if one of the teams has a zscore of less than -1.4 on their passing attempts. The service academies rarely pass and so it is can be very difficult to hit the over.

    Two of the overs this week are service academy games.

    USMA1992. Thanks for sharing your model output. Curiosity question for you…I saw in a previous thread that the model results don’t take into account weather/injuries for upcoming games, however do you take into account on the input? I am thinking of awful weather leading to a low scoring game that could be an outlier much like the Miami 70 point outburst was an outlier. Thanks!

    Appreciate the question...

    First the Miami game I definitely am concerned about. A game like that is extremely rare and destroys the statistics... probably for the year.

    Injuries... I have no chance at accounting for them

    Weather ... I believe can be done and I look forward to adding to my system to adjust for the weather.

    If I adjust Miami down 20%... I still think the system picks them.

    Picked up a nice note on Texas:
    *Texas has played against a BACKUP QB in each of their L3 games, including KS last week.

    So right now... your on the hook for analysis beyond the numbers which includes your Las Vegas play and your analysis of the Red River rivalry. I don't hold it against you by any means.

    I know that the analysis has to go beyond the numbers but I want the numbers to mean 90% the analysis to to mean the last 10%.
    Which is what you are doing...

    Dave, I'm not on top of my game. Pretty busy nowadays, not doing the requisite amount of work.

    *I'll call Oklahoma an Opinion. I actually have no action on that game, for one reason. I missed the +6.5, I hate taking the short-end of the #.
    ...Was speaking to another capper, and he made a great point. As good as the Sooner offense is, they gave up some long pops to IASt. Texas figures to have success w/ Ewers throwing.
    ...Big key for me = Okla 49-0 revenge. Should feel good about getting a great effort in rivalry game.
    ...And I am a fan of Gabriel (75% completions). He's a little under-the-radar b/c they have yet to play a hi-profile game.

    Yes, the Raiders were a play for me. But I will repeat what I always say: *It's the # on YOUR TICKET.
    ...I bet Raiders at +2.5 (1.90) and +1.5 (2.00). Those prices are gone.
    ...Raiders now favored, so I'll be holding good BTCL (vs # at kickoff).
    ...There are 7 AFC vs NFC games this week. If I was a betting man, I'd feel good about the AFC going 4-3 ATS or better in those games.

    us, props if you had the Sooners.
    ...Seems like a lot of Dog bettors were on them today.
