5 Star Club: 63% Documented Winners Since 2008

Sep 5, 2010

When I established Oskeim Sports Consulting, LLC in 2007, I wanted to provide the betting public with the strongest sports picks in the industry, bar none.  The exclusive 5 Star Club achieves that goal by providing serious sports investors with 4-6 sports picks a month.  Since 2008, the 5 Star Club is a documented 145-85-4 (63%), including going 89-53 (63%) since January, 2009.  5 Star Club members receive detailed analysis on each sports pick, including fundamental, technical and situational handicapping methodology.  For example, on September 4, 2010, I released Oklahoma State to my 5 Star Club clients as my College Football Opening Weekend Game of the Year, and that winning sports pick came with the following analysis:

Oklahoma State (-16.5) (-115) over Washington State

Investment Advice: The Cowboys are a 5* investment at -16.5 points or less (at -125 odds or better).

Analysis:  Washington State’s defense was simply atrocious last year as the Huskies allowed 38.5 points per game to teams that combined to average just 28.2 points per game, while yielding 5.9 yards per rush attempt, 9.2 yards per pass attempt (66.8% completion rate) and 533 total yards per game (7.4 yards per play.  On the road, the Huskies allowed 40.6 points per game, including 2487 rushing yards (5.9 yards per rush play), 307 passing yards (11.2 yards per pass play) and 554 total yards (8.0 yards per play).  Unfortunately for Washington State fans, the Huskies’ defense remains grossly inadequate as my math model projects very little improvement within the front seven.   Similarly, the Huskies’ offense was anemic last season wherein they averaged 12 points per game, including 2.4 yards per rush play and 5.7 yards per pass play against teams that combined to allow 24.7 points per game, 4.0 yards per rush play and 6.9 yards per pass play to mediocre offensive squads.  Meanwhile, my Big XII scouts indicate that Washington State starting quarterback Jeff Tuel has looked terrible in spring practice.  In fact, Tuel completed just 33% of his passes (1 interception) in his first scrimmage and only 53.3% of his pass attempts in the final spring practice.  In short, Washington State remains one of the worst teams in college football, although the Huskies should be slightly more competitive this season.

Invest against – Any team (Washington State) – in the first week of the season, after closing out last season with 4 or more consecutive losses, terrible team from last season who won 25% or less of their games.

(22-3 over the last 5 seasons; 88%)

This system is 13-2 ATS since 2006 and 22-3 ATS since 2000.  This system also contains a subset angle that is 11-1 ATS over the last three seasons.

One of the most overlooked hires in college football was Oklahoma State offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen, who was the offensive coordinator at Texas Tech from 2005-2007 (co-offensive coordinator since 2000) and spent the last two seasons at Houston where he developed quarterback Case Keenum.  Last season, Oklahoma State averaged 32.2 points per game at home against teams that combined to allow just 21.7 points per game to mediocre offensive squads, and I expect this year’s offensive unit to surpass those numbers, especially with a healthy Kendall Hunter in the backfield.  Let’s also note that the Cowboys are 8-3 ATS as home favorites and 18-6 ATS when favored by more than three points, whereas Washington State is 0-4 ATS versus Big XII opponents and 5-14 ATS when not getting at least 31 points from the oddsmakers (1-7 ATS on the road). 

While Oklahoma State is certainly in a rebuilding year and will not be as good as in previous seasons, head coach Mike Gundy understands the importance of a fast start and Washington State is a perfect opponent for that purpose as the Huskies have lost 91.7% of their road games by at least 21 points over the last two years.  Take the Cowboys in a blowout and invest with confidence.
