Also really interested to see what the rest of tigers system thinks about NW.
Mixed results, which means no play for me.
Northwestern fits the role of a very live dog, 14th out of all 122 teams. But Penn State isn't vulnerable enough of a favorite and the matchup analysis strongly favors Penn State.
Dgtiger, what is your system spitting out about Kentucky and Vandy as dogs?
Because I like both Mizzou and Mississippi State to cover those. Thinking about a tease of State -4 and Mizzou -.5.
Well it has Kentucky (107th) and Vanderbilt (114th) but playing a team the system considers to be a strong favorite against a team that is a weak dog has had very mixed results.
I made the mistake of releasing Stanford as a pick last Thursday because of this exact situation and got burnt. The match up analysis of the game gives both dogs a "punchers" chance.
Because of that game I feel like I held back on a few games I liked last weekend, La Tech and Texas Tech were two I really liked.
For me personally I know what the system was designed for and my goal was to hover around 70% on my released picks so I will be sticking with only what it does best until it has proven success otherwise.
