College Football Handicapping – November Bye Weeks

Evaluating Teams And The November Bye Weeks Schedule

Here is the list of college football teams with November bye weeks along with their opponents before and after the bye week.  In college football, this is a real benefit to the rested and prepared team and especially playing at home, so review the schedule and the post-bye situational system that is usually quite strong.

This is another piece to add to your handicapping arsenal, but know that you still must evaluate the motivation, match-ups, injuries, statistical profiles and betting lines before you blindly bet on these rested teams off a bye.

If you don’t have the time, energy or ability to consistently produce point spread winners, then let my extensive research, ability and proven profit-producing experience be your reward and become a member for the rest of  November and through the college bowls.

Want plenty of plays that that win? Last week members enjoyed another big week of winners as our college football plays went 10-3 overall including 7-2 on Saturday. Want just the Top Plays? Those were 5-1 last week with our Big Bertha 20* play on Air Force – a 58-7 blowout winner. Going back the past six weeks in college football, Top Plays went 5-1, 3-1, 6-1, 4-2, 1-3 and 6-1. We had one losing Top Play weekend.  Six weekends of college football Top Plays with five winning weekends a combined 24-6! Add in our losing Top Play Saturday in early October (1-3, no 20*) and our Top Play run over the past six weeks is 25-9 ATS (73%).
