    returning quarterbacks, receivers, and defensive backs carry more heft to create numbers for offense and defense.

    Thanks, but it is all meaningless because he does NOT take into consideration the players who will be replacing the ones that have left. He has Kansas ranked 2nd, and there are at least 110 teams behind them that could easily defeat them. He has USC at 115 and Penn State at 116, yet those two teams could possibly meet in the Rose Bowl again this season.

    Bill Connelly is THE MAN but the big surprise, for me, is such a low Offensive Line correlation. I've had great success betting ON week 1-2 teams with 4-5 starting OL returning when matched up against teams with a lot of turnover in front 7

    This article was printed back in January. I would love to see this article updated 6 months later (after all the injuries/transfers/suspensions, etc).

    As rolltide mentioned, its a good tool regarding OL starters (i would throw in DL as well).

    I think its also a good tool to use in the early weeks for underdogs getting double digits points

    Are you talking about weeks 1-3, when more non-con games are played than conference games?

    Well, you will have a lot to choose from. There are 29 week 1 games where the favorite is double digits.

    Correct, now lets look at how many of these dogs have a lot of returning starters coming back (especially OL and DL) and are playing teams that dont have a lot of returning starters coming back (especially on OL and DL)

    I have not checked all of the games, but I think the correct answer will be very close to NONE.
