2017 SEC Pick of the Week – Preview Edition

And, we’re back! Welcome to the 2017 edition of the SEC Pick of the Week here at The Saturday Edge. Last year, as in 2016, we managed to scrape by with a 9-4 ATS record in the regular season only to combine that with losses in the SEC Championship Game. I guess a 18-9 record isn’t so bad. That means what, we’ve hit on 66% of our picks? That doesn’t even include the “upset alert” or...

Handicapping the 2015 College Football National Ch...

Handicapping the 2015 College Football National Championship The common trend among national champions since the NCAA went to the BCS system in 1998 has been recruiting at an elite level. With the exception of longshot Oklahoma in 2000, every team that has won a national title in the BCS era has had at least two top 10 recruiting classes in the previous four cycles. There are 11 teams that qualify for this metric in 2015,...

2015 SEC East Season Win Totals

Upon diving into our initial piece regarding college football win totals a week prior, I provided my input with regard to the SEC West. A keen soft spot for some, I nudged bettors to perhaps glance at the over for Alabama, Arkansas, and both the Tigers of LSU and Auburn, while I recommended the opposite for Ole Miss, Texas A&M and Mississippi State. In essence, many recreational wagerers base calculations and numbers off...

2015 SEC West Season Win Totals

The Southeastern conference perhaps acts as a mantelpiece for college football. A rich tradition and storied history deeply rooted within the fanbases, the game comes as second nature, with potential petitions for inscribing Nick Saban and Steve Spurrier-like replicas amidst the crevices of Mount Rushmore.   So when 5 Dimes opened up win totals for the FBS, one core of clubs that sought keen proofreading was the SEC. ...

2015 Heisman Odds and some Future Bets

Some of the more offshore sports books as well as the Vegas joints have released their lines, or atleast their thoughts on the Heisman odds entering next season. I’ll analyze some of the odds, the history of the award, and some valuable plays. Odds – via 5dimes Trevone Boykin QB (TCU)   +750 Ezekiel Elliott RB (Ohio State)   +800 Dak Prescott QB (Mississippi State)   +850 Nick Chubb RB (Georgia)   +1100 Leonard...

2014 College Football Win Totals: Introduction and...

The 2014 College Football Win Totals were first released a little over a month ago. If you are late to the party, fear not: there’s still plenty of value to go around. For those of you who are new to the win total/season-long prop bet arena, here are a couple things to keep in mind: 1 . Don’t invest too much of your bankroll in these types of wagers. Remember, you won’t be able to touch that money until the...

2014 SEC Team Preview – Florida

I think if you mixed Windex and Everclear with a splash of tonic, it wouldn’t be strong enough to remove the 2013 college football season from Florida fan’s memory. Boy was it rough, but to be honest, there was some bright lights that make the potential in 2014 very nice. I’m not kidding. 2013 In Review 51. That is the number of starts that the Gators lost to injury last year. 30 on offense, 21 on defense....

2014 ACC Team Preview – Wake Forest

As College football season rapidly approaches, I wanted to take a brief look at each team in the ACC as we say goodbye to Maryland and welcome Louisville into the fold.  The main focus of these previews will be on the schedule for each team, and projecting their performance against it.  I will also take a look at the projected win total for each team and predict how they will fare against it. The power numbers are of my own...

2014 SEC Team Preview – Missouri

Coming into 2014, I want to thank the Tigers for the large amount of money they made us in their 2013 campaign. Last year, the Tigers were to some, a surprise champion in the SEC East.  Coming into 2014, the Tigers are once again going to have to earn their respect from rest of the SEC. Things this season may be a little bit tougher. 2013 In Review Last season, I strongly believe that the Tigers had one of the best 3 WR...

2014 Heisman Futures

When you look at laying a future bet on the Heisman winner, past history is an important guideline to follow. So what does history tell us? Since 2000, there have been 2 non-QBs to win the award. Both were Running Backs (Reggie Bush and Mark Ingram). Both players were on teams that played in the national championship game. So, if you are going to go out on a limb and pick a non-QB, you better look to pick players on teams...
