– Last year there were 11 teams that failed to win more than 3 games ATS (combining to go 30-100 ATS). Those same teams have greatly improved and are now 47-37 ATS on the year, already 17 more ATS wins combined than all of last season.
– Teams receiving less than 35% of spread bets went just 13-15 ATS last week but are still a solid 157-141 ATS on the year.
– Underdogs may be coming down to earth this year as they went just 23-26 ATS this past week but are still 276-258 ATS on the year.
– However, Underdogs that were +7 or greater on the spread went 17-15 ATS this past week for another winning week and are now 197-175 ATS on the year.
– TCU racked up 82 points in their thrashing over Texas Tech this past weekend and remain the only team to cover every game ATS this season.
