Sport: NCAAF | Star Rating: 8.0 Evaluation: Loss (-912) - Final Score LIB 45 at MASS 0
40 MASS (-114) @ pinnacle

I'm playing on UMASS. The Flames are off their first loss of the season. Now, they step down in class to take on a weaker team. Many will expect a blowout. Certainly, Liberty is the much stronger team. However, winning big and winning by more than five touchdowns are two entirely different matters. Losing that first game is tough to bounce back from, when that first loss comes this late in the season. That's particularly the case when the loss was by only one point, which was the case. The players are still thinking about "what might have been." Focusing on lowly UMass will be tough. The Minutemen have already played some tough teams (Marshall) and all of their games have come on the road. None of their losses were by more than 41. They're 4-2 ATS the last six times that they were underdogs of 31 or more. Only one of Liberty's seven wins came by more than 33. I'm grabbing the points. 


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.
