College Football – Crushing College Bowls

Crushing College Bowls with 18-6 ATS Start

It’s been a great bowl season through the first 20 bowl games as members have enjoyed our 18-6 ATS run providing a rated play or opinion on every bowl game. That includes 6-1 on sides rated 10* or higher following our Top Play 15* winner on Navy in the Military Bowl. We missed a rated total when Utah won for us but five BYU turnovers and defensive scores proved fatal for under the total players as the teams combined for less than 600 yards total offense. However, we went on a 11-0 run on our 5* opinion plays over Christmas and those opinion plays are now 12-4 ATS.

I was traveling over the Christmas holiday and reduced ratings on all plays over a six day stretch, and that’s when we went on a heater going 11-0 ATS with a 5* opinion on every winner.

Regular Fairway followers know that I write-up at least 20 football games every week during the football season. Some of the analysis is posted on various sports and gaming sites, and others are private for members and other personal and private sources that I provide info, insight and analysis. Some of the games and analysis you may read do not always make my client card either as a rated play or opinion. Same with plays or opinions I may provide on social media or Twitter. I bet some of the games along with halftime options, changes in weather, injury info and more than may impact initial thoughts and decisions.

Despite offers to provide and sell sports selections for touting services as a professional and proficient handicapper, I’ve elected to work independently and maintain more control of my time and business that has been built for over a decade. I’m not touting or spouting Games of the Year, locks or guaranteeing anything other than insight and info you can bet on from a proven pro. That said, I do respect many in the handicapping arena who work hard and provide credible information and insight; more than many less-informed ‘talking heads’ in the media or other less credible handicappers with misguided marketing tactics.

The information and records you read about hear or through me are accurate and provided to paying members and clients.

With holidays, travel, daily football and even basketball cutting into our bowl bonanza, it’s a big undertaking to stay on top of it all and provide analysis from the endless research in our pursuit of profit.

So not feeling my best while trying to conquer it all over the holidays, I reduced the ratings on a number of plays but still provided opinions knowing many members want to bet 1/2 or 1 unit, or even more if they are in more agreement with my plays and/or analysis.

As agreed to in my bowl offer to members, I provide at least a 5* opinion on every game and at least 14 plays rated 10* (1-unit) to 20* (2-units) over the 40 bowl game schedule plus national championship game.

The results thus far are strong, and more members have joined the profit party for the biggest bowl games ahead.

Best wishes into the New Year and the final two weeks of the bowl season. If you don’t have the time, energy or ability to proficiently project point spread winners, then get on my bag and I’ll hit the shots and guide you down the fairway to the green.
