College Football Season Subscription of Stephen Nover

College presents opportunities that the NFL doesn't where sometimes you can actually find line value. My record the last three years in college football is 109-86 for 56 percent. I've beaten the colleges the past three years by combining many handicapping factors such as matchup analysis, statistics, history, weather and situational elements. Information is the key. I'm fortunate that I have many sources to rely on. Many stem from having been a sportswriter/sports editor for daily newspapers in the Midwest, South and West for more than 20 years and having been the sports gaming writer for the Las Vegas Review-Journal for 13 years while also having covered the UNLV football team as the team beat writer for several years. I have the knowledge, experience and resources necessary to win. I've won the past three years and I expect to turn a tidy profit again this season.

The Saints are an overrated bunch just 2-2 in their last four games and lucky not to be 1-3 after pulling off an improbable overtime home win against the Chargers in their last game. New Orleans hasn't fared well following its bye the past couple of seasons and will be without its two top wideouts, including superstar Michael Thomas. 

  The Panthers have shown defensive improvement and a respectable balanced offense despite not having Christian McCaffrey. Teddy Bridgewater is a mind-boggling 14-2 ATS as a road underdog in his NFL starting career.

You have to go all the way back to 2002 to find the last time the Patriots under Bill Belichick lost three games in a row. 

 The spot, matchup and injury situation strongly favor the Patriots, who have covered 67 percent of the time during the past 74 instances following a loss.  The Patriots were in a tough spot last week unable to practice on the field because their facilities were shut down due to COVID. It's business as usual this week for the Patriots, who have been able to practice and get back to their normal routine.  It's the 49ers who have the bad timing. They just defeated the Rams at home in a pivotal division game this past Sunday. San Francisco has another huge division game next week against the Seahawks.  Cam Newton should finally be back to 100 percent. The Patriots are expected to get reinforcements back on both their offensive and defensive lines, including star center David Andrews.  The 49ers aren't as lucky. They are down their best running back and have multiple defensive injuries to a number of important players, including Nick Bosa, Richard Sherman, Dee Ford, Kwon Alexander and Solomon Thomas.  Jimmy Garoppolo hasn't played well this season. Garoppolo backed up Tom Brady before going to the 49ers. Belichick certainly knows Garoppolo's tendencies.  Both teams are ground-oriented and conservative. Newton is superior to Garoppolo. The Patriots also have the stronger secondary and Belichick is the best coach in football.

Chiefs vs Broncos
UNDER 47½ -126 Lost

Play Type: Premium

Now that we're heading into late October weather can be a factor. That's likely to be the case in this matchup where snow and wind are in the projected Denver forecast.  Kansas City has become more run-oriented. That's likely to stay the same with the addition of Le'Veon Bell. The Chiefs have an underrated defense. The Broncos are missing their best wide receiver, Courtland Sutton, and Drew Lock is trying to get the rust off. Denver scored a combined nine points in its two games against Kansas City last season. Denver's strength is its well-coached defense under Vic Fangio. Bradley Chubb has emerged as a top pass rushing force.

Cowboys vs Washington Football Team

The Cowboys have serious problems. That was evident watching them this past Monday night. But don't overreact to that game. Washington is worse than Dallas.  Washington has trailed by double-digits with the ball in every one of its games. Only one team can match that embarrassing mark - and it's not the Cowboys but the Jets.  Andy Dalton will have had two weeks of working with the Cowboys' first-string offense. He's a decent QB when he's surrounded with skill position weapons, which he has with the Cowboys. Washington can't come close to matching the Cowboys' offensive talent.  So the Cowboys defense doesn't face a stiff challenge here like they did in five of their previous six games.  The Cowboys have covered 79 percent of their last 19 division games.

A terrible defense and bad coaching have done in the Texans. Their season, for all practical purposes, was to put to rest when they blew a late lead against the Titans this past Sunday. That loss put the Texans at 1-5 and crushed what little morale they had picked up when Bill O'Brien was fired.  Opposing QB's are completing 70 percent of their throws versus the Texans for 13 touchdowns and just one interception. Houston also ranks last in run defense. Look for the Packers to come back strong after being embarrassed by the Buccaneers this past Sunday. Aaron Rodgers, Aaron Jones and Davonte Adams should produce huge numbers.  Despite their loss to Tampa Bay, the Packers have been strong on the road under Matt LaFleur going 8-3 SU and 7-4 ATS. Green Bay also has not lost two consecutive games under LaFleur. The Texans have failed to cover the past six times they've been underdogs.

49ers vs Patriots
UNDER 45½ -110 Won
$100
Play Type: Premium
Both of these teams lean heavily toward the run. The Patriots have become the Cam Newton show. Newton is more feared as a runner than passer.  Each team is banged up in the offensive line, too. Patriots coach Bill Belichick is well acquainted with Jimmy Garoppolo, who served as Tom Brady's backup before going to the 49ers. The 49ers will be without their best running back, injured Raheem Mostert.  Despite injuries, the 49ers rank fifth in fewest yards allowed per game, while the Patriots yield the ninth fewest yards.

Bears vs Rams
UNDER 45 -110
Play Type: Top Premium

The NFL likes to have high-scoring games especially during its nationally televised games. The league probably is going to be disappointed when this one finishes because it has the makings of a low-scoring contest. 

 The Bears entered this Week 7 ranked in the bottom-six in scoring, rushing and yards per play. So why are they 5-1? Their defense has given up a league-low 4 TD passes.  Jared Goff has had more trouble versus the Bears than any opponent. Goff has a 0-to-5 touchdown-to-interception ratio and a passer rating of 33.9 in two career matchups versus Chicago. Goff actually has played better on the road this season where nine of his 10 TD passes have occurred.  The Rams have held four of their six opponents below 20 points. Aaron Donald entered this week leading the NFL in sacks with 7 1/2. He's going to be a load for a mediocre Bears offensive line. Nick Foles has regressed to being more game manager than gunslinger.  So this game figures to be conservative. The teams have met the past two seasons and there was not more than 24 points scored in either one.
