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…

- Offered at:
- bookmaker @ -146 Cleveland
Play - Cleveland Indians w/Salazar vs. Ventura.
Edges - Indians: Danny Salazar 2-0 home team starts in this series; and 3-1 home career team starts during May. Royals: Yordano Ventura 1-9 career tram starts during May, including 0-5 away.
With Salazar in great form with a 2.40 ERA and a 0.97 WHIP this season, and Ventura in struggling form with 11 BB’s and 10K’s in his last three starts, we recommend a 1* play on Cleveland. Thank you and good luck as always.
