016 ATS TEAMS TO WATCH/ SMALL SCHOOLS EDITION
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! No it’s not Christmas.. its college football season and I figured i’d take some time to educate you on some teams im looking forward to from a Vegas perspective this year!
When handicapping college football, i’m a huge fan of involving myself and my clients in the art of the small schools! There’s nothing better to me than being involved in total blow outs involving a great school vs a poor school.
Here are several small schools that I look to “get the chicken” early and often this year…
GA SOUTHERN EAGLES- Ga Southern was a huge money maker last year for me and if you follow me on SBR Forum you know that. The Eagles were 9-4 ATS in 2015 covering 69.2 percent of the time. The great thing about them is they play in the Sun Belt, a conference that features plenty of bottom feeders to feed on. They also possess a true option attack which leans on a running game full of play makers. All of their position players are back and they should light up the scoreboard. You can’t stop the option just try to contain it! Defense is strong and with a favorable conference schedule I look for them to continue to put money in bettors pockets! PS Dont think they cant cover against power 5 schools, last year vs Georgia they easily stayed within the number!
SAN DIEGO STATE AZTECS- Talk about another moneymaker! The Aztecs were a strong bet in their memorable season which saw them win the MWC and pound Cincinnati in the Hawaii Bowl. They are led by coach Rocky Long a tough, hard nosed coach who love his defense and offensive run game. He will lead on Donnell Pumphrey (the best RB you never heard of) to lead the way. Virtually every player on offense and defense is back except for their starting QB. But don’t worry Christian Chapman their new QB saw a lot of success late in the season last year and looks ready to lead the offense. The Aztecs were a profitable 8-5-1 ATS and won as big dogs in the MWC at +600. They will possess one of the strongest defenses in the country this year and will breeze through their schedule, so make sure when getting your Saturday cards together it involves including SDSU on it.
OHIO BOBCATS- The Bobcats enter 2016 with high hopes in the MAC. They are my pick to win this conference and will cover plenty this year. Frank Solich returns plenty of talent on the offensive side of the ball. Tailback AJ Ouelette is a special player and didn’t fumble the ball once last year! They have a nice group of WR’s and have a helluva defense! In 2015 they only gave up 25 PPG and were down right stingy at times. They should cover early and often with early OOC games against lowly Texas State, Kansas and Gardner Webb. They were 9-4 last year ATS, and I see no reason it shouldn’t continue this year. Take a shot also for them to win this conference as well. In the EAST side of the MAC division I think they will come out on top and it should give you a nice opportunity to hedge your bet in the title game for a guaranteed profit.
