TSE Premium – Units Wagered Per Game

A few weeks ago I told everyone via the newsletter that I would begin breaking down the feedback from the personal emails I sent out to all The Saturday Edge premium subscribers and I followed that up with this article on the number of weekly picks we will offer this coming season (the quality vs quantity debate). Today I will attempt to address what was easily the most debated topic in the Premium section last year, UNIT...

In our last newsletter I told everyone I would begin breaking down the feedback from the personal emails I sent out to all The Saturday Edge premium subscribers. My plan was to do so via newsletter posts, but there was so much great information, suggestions and ideas that needed to be covered, more time and space was required. So the plan is to begin writing some articles about the feedback and I’ll post them here on...

Jimmyshivers Week 1 ACC Football Thread

Hello everyone & welcome back for another exciting (and likely incredibly confusing) season of ACC Football.  In this year’s game of ACC roulette, we see the conference lose original member Maryland but add Louisville.  Adding to the confusion is the partial addition of Notre Dame, who will only play 5 ACC games a year for the foreseeable future.  If any conference could get away with adding half a team, it had to...

College Football Stats – Focus on what they ...

Focus on What Stats MEAN, Rather Than Numbers With the first official “board” games of the 2014 college football season beginning Thursday night, this is a good time to focus on evaluating the statistics that you’re about to see accumulated on a game-by-game basis.  What’s been considered a recent “analytics revolution” in the world of sports hasn’t really taken hold in college football. Sure, there have been advancements in...

Be Flexible, and SMART With Power Ratings

It’s important not to be blinded by those ratings when contemplating erratic teams who rarely play to their projections.  A great example of this phenomenon is the Baylor Bears of 2013. Under head coach Art Briles, Baylor is a high octane team that loves to...

Halftime Wagering – Second Half Betting Stra...

Halftime Wagering – Second Half Betting Strategies  Last week we talked about creative ways to bet underdogs using first quarter and first half options in college football. Seems natural to move to strategies for attacking second half pointspreads this week.  One of the main points of that discussion was that “live” situational underdogs often fade in the second half because they run out of gas, or because their...
