2013-09-27 07:48:10 - Sports handicapping and the best bets when coming off a win in college football handicapping are explored
The sports handicapping website Vegas Experts explored how effective momentum is when it comes to sports handicapping and college football betting by looking at how teams have done following a victory.
The website’s research showed that five teams: the Stanford Cardinal (31-10-1), the San Jose State Spartans (12-4), Wyoming Cowboys (14-6), Kent State Golden Flashes (16-7-1) and Western Kentucky Hilltoppers (11-5) have the best records within this category since 2009.
Vegas Experts only considered teams that had accumulated more than 10 games in this category since that time, in order to have a large enough sample size. Some teams have only recently flourished in this role, including some that had little experience with winning.
In the latter category, Western Kentucky won zero games
in 2009, while San Jose State won just once that season and the next. In that latter campaign, the Spartans were joined by Wyoming with just one victory.
Within the span of years examined, Stanford is the lone school of the five that has beaten the Las Vegas betting line following a win at 50 percent or better during the entire stretch.
This weekend, three of the teams are in that category as Stanford plays at PAC-12 rival Washington State, Wyoming hosts Texas State and Western Kentucky hosts Navy.
