Editor's Note: Don't miss out on college football winners from Marc Lawrence for the rest of the regular season. Click to win!
According to our powerful database, it seems Game Four of the College Football season is often times a critical stepping-stone for teams who play with a week of rest. This is especially true for teams that are either playing at home off a win, or on the road off their first defeat of the season. Check out these numbers...
When these reinvigorated home teams take the field off a win with a week of rest in Game Four of the season they are a super-strong 69-40-1 ATS overall since 1980.
This week's finds will have smiles on their faces.
Iowa State vs. Texas Tech
Oklahoma State vs. Texas
Purdue vs. Marshall
UCF vs. Missouri
Washington vs. Stanford
Dress these rested Game Four hosts with a measure of revenge and they rocket to 25-9 ATS. And if it's a conference revenge affair they zoom to 23-3 ATS. With that, Washington will be looking to rise to new heights this week.
Meanwhile, Game Four rested road teams who find themselves off their first loss of the season show their muscle, having gone 19-9 ATS over the same span in this role. Indiana fits the bill this week.
And finally, if these rested Game Four road teams suffered an initial defeat as a favorite lost they zoom to 12-1 ATS.
Now, if you're either a Hoosier or Husky this week raise your hand if you're sure!
