NCAAF Week 7: ATS and Totals Picks

Last week's four NCAAF against the spread picks split, as two of our big favorites (Cal and Ohio) not only failed to cover, but lost outright. Fortunately, Virignia Tech routed North Carolina, and San Diego State beat the number with points to spare versus UNLV. Our three totals picks turned a profit, as combined scores for Marshall @ North Texas and Syracuse @ Wake Forest both came in below the betting line. Again Cal was a spoiler. In aggregate though, we managed a modest (0.63 units) profit.

In week 6, our trepidation regarding our decision to venture into college football this season restricted our focus solely on home teams and away favorites against the spread, and UNDERs in the totals space--cohorts where backtests demonstrated the best results. However, the combination of the aversion of calamity in our published picks and the aggregate (offline) performance of our framework last week has emboldened us. Accordingly, we are opening up for week 8. We examined the entire NCAAF week 8 docket, and feature below seven high-conviction ATS picks and nine OVER/UNDER plays.
