Fairway’s Forecast – College Football Week 14 Preview And Picks
College Football Rivalry Weekend And Our Biggest Underdog Card Of The Season In Week 14
As I outlined in my rivalry week article at Forbes with betting lines and analysis, rivalry games bring out the greatest emotions, energy and effort. The college football contests are the most meaningful games of the season to the players, coaches and fan bases.
While stats and match-ups can point you towards more winners in your fundamental handicapping, it doesn’t work out that was as often in rivalry games where emotion plays a bigger part. So does the point spread, which is often inflated towards the stronger teams at this time of year and those top teams have more to play for with conference championship games and potential college football playoff berths on the line or ahead. Those contests ahead can also be a distraction for some teams, who may already be locked into a conference championship or bowl game and not match the emotion or effort of their lesser opponent.
We’re firing with a double Fairway Foursome this week as we conclude the regular season.
