NCAA football is here. A word of warning though…. Most bettors start out the
season betting much more then they should and by mid season if they take some
hits they are out of action. I have seen it time and again.
The best way to wager is to set a sum of money you can well afford to lose. Then bet 1/20 on each wager. Or if you wish to be real conservative 1/40. That way you have a good chance of being around at the end of the season and with some luck and good picking you can make money.
My methods of picking games are a combination of a number of variables. The first variable is what the public is doing on the game. The public threshold numbers are different in every sport and in some sports only apply to home teams. In NCAA Football this is the case. Home teams where the public is betting less then 30 percent have an edge overall.
This alone will not do the trick. But I use that as a starting point. I then have several neural net models that predict the outcome of the game. I then finish it up with some situational analysis.
The game Sat that meets my criteria for a play is Syracuse +7. The public is on them 14% to 86% on Minnesota. In addition your getting a key number +7 . The models I look at predict the following scores:
+5.5 +4 +4 +2
There are 3 situations in favor of Syracuse to none for Minnesota. The top situation is:
Play Against - Any team (MINNESOTA) - in the first week of the season, after closing out last season with 5 or more straight losses, with an experienced QB returning as starter, in the first two weeks of the season. (37-11 over the last 10 seasons.)
This under my method qualifies as a play for Syracuse +7
