Week 10 provides some interesting matchups to look out for. There are several non-conference sandwich games that bettors must be weary of. Otherwise, conference play is starting to heat up in many divisions, with some crucial games on the slate this weekend. As we dig deeper into the season, motivation becomes a really important factor for teams that are still in contention for national and conference titles. Also, it is important to keep in mind coaching advantages, especially when two familiar conference foes are going against each other. This usually carries more weight in November and December. In addition, depth, fatigue, injuries, and even weather will likely play a bigger role throughout the rest of the season.
As I mention every week, it is important to remember that these trends and stats are only one piece of the puzzle when trying to figure out which team to place a wager on. They shouldn’t be followed blindly, but instead they should be considered and factored into the broader context and reasoning for selecting a side. So without further ado, let’s kick it off for week 10.
