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…

- bet365 @ 100 Hewitt/Thompson
Tennis Insiders have taken control at Wimbledon, posting a 4-1 record the past two days.
Interesting match here, Hewitt coming out of retirement for the second time when accepting a wildcard for doubles participation. There is the possibility he may play doubles at the olympics along with coaching team Australia, so match practice will be important here. He'll team up with fellow Australian Jordan Thompson, and this could be the beginning of a very successful partnership. Due to rain, doubles has been reduced from best of 5 sets, to best of 3, certainly an advantage for Hewitt. After a complete meltdown in singles today, Almagro's hunger for this match must be questioned. He's 0-4 in doubles at the All-England Club. These matches don't have a scheduled court, but a show court is likely, and with Hewitt a fan favorite here expect plenty of support. Hewitt brings fantastic energy & drive into every match he plays, and has pushed the Bryan & Murray brothers to 5 sets in Davis Cup matches. He's advanced from the Round of 64 in Grand Slam Doubles 5 straight times, and in a best of 3 sets match his hustle should be enough to win.
We reccomend a 1* play on Hewitt/Thompson
