Total of the Month - Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach CFB Rotation #193 Saturday 10* Top Play OVER the total in Stanford Cardinal vs Colorado Buffaloes @ 3:30 ET - This series has a history of low-scoring games with 5 of 6 games staying under the total. Last season's game totaled only 29 points. That said, give me the over! Indeed, history is oftentimes just that...history! These are different teams than they were in past seasons of course. The Cardinal use to be known as a defensive-minded team that likes to run the ball on offense and control the clock. This is no longer the way football is played at Stanford and last season their passing attack was much better than the ground game and I expect more of the same this season. Also, the Cardinal pass defense was very poor last season and so too was the Buffaloes. That said, I am expecting plenty of points here as Colorado is off a crazy 48-42 win over UCLA which was played at a very fast pace. Even though Stanford's game against Oregon stayed under the total, they had 413 yards of offense (even without their starting QB Davis Mills) and that was against a respectable Oregon team. Also, the Cardinal allowed the Ducks nearly 500 yards. The Buffaloes game against the Bruins totaled over 1000 yards of offense. We get a low total to work with here thanks to the long-term history of the Cardinal as well as the low-scoring trend in this series. That was then and this is now and also very nice weather expected for this game as well. That said, all signs point to a game that gets well into the 60s here and might even get into the 70s. Tremendous value as neither team will be able to stop the other. 10* OVER the total in Stanford


What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
