System of the Week
by Tom Stryker - 11/02/2004
The Big Engine That Will!
If youâ€™re a chalk eater, then youâ€™ll love the this System Play of the Week!
When I open up my wallet for a favorite, I like to have a good team in a great situation. This weekâ€™s system offers exactly that. Take a look.
Since 1980, game seven or later home favorites of -10 or more are a tremendous 35-11 ATS for 76.0 percent provided they check in off back-to-back road pointspread losses and their opponent enters off a straight up loss. After failing to cash a ticket as a guest for two straight weeks, the novice investor doesnâ€™t want anything to do with this home team laying doubles! As you can plainly see, I certainly do!
There are a couple of ways to tighten up this technical situation to really make it pop. First, if our â€œBig Engineâ€쳌 is NOT in a revenge mode, this system jumps to 32-8 ATS for 80.0 percent. That number can be improved to 28-3 ATS for 90.3 percent provided our host did NOT lose to the line by more than 21 points in their last outing.
If you love â€œperfect system playsâ€쳌, then make sure you keep this last tightener that makes this one 100 percent! With those three parameters applied and our home team knocking helmets against a foe that owns a won/loss percentage less than .333, this â€œBig Engineâ€쳌 system skyrockets to a beautiful 20-0 ATS! There is one play this week: FLORIDA STATE!
