Smart Box Series: 7 Come 11
By Marc Lawrence
Game 11 of the college football season signals many things.
For teams with six or more wins its one step closer to a probable bowl bid.
Teams languishing below .500 are likely to be home for the holidays.
So it is too for Game 11 non-winners that ended the previous season with 7 or more wins who are playing today off two losses-exact.
Our best advice for these teams is to bend over and kiss it goodbye, as these losers have a better chance of learning Florida election results first rather than enhancing their bowl chances.
That’s because these 7-plus game winners last year who enter Game 11 this year off two losses-exact with a .500 or less record are 17-37-1 ATS since 1980.
Air Force and Houston will assume the role this week. And for what it’s worth, home teams (the Falcons) are 8-22 ATS, while underdogs (the Cougars) are just 3-22 SU and 4-20-1 ATS.
While 7 and 11 are winning numbers in the first roll at a craps table, together they are losers on the college gridiron.
Houston, you’ve got a problem…

Play On: Cincinnati w/Leake vs Liriano.
Note: The Reds and Pirates open a four-game series in the Steel City Monday night where Mike Leake matches serves with Francisco Liriano. Leake toes the slab having cashed each of his last four team starts in this series.
On the flip side, Liriano has struggles against the Reds, dropping five of his six career team starts. Look for more of the same this evening. We recommend a 1-unit play on Cincinnati. Thank you and good luck as always.
Marc's scintillating hand on the NBA hardwood continues in the playoffs with another Top Key Play on Monday night's card. Best of all it's backed with an awesome angle inside the game that is 100% ATS perfect in the playoffs the last 25 years. You know what to do!
