CFB 4th Quarter Comebacks – ATS

By  | 

Bust this: Les Miles has been driving Tiger fans and LSU bettors crazy for year.  Is he the worst head coach at blowing 4th quarter covers? JRich @LSUspaceman

CONFIRMED


Nothing beats 4th quarter comebacks. Something I love during college football season is watching a game and seeing a last second score that ends up having an impact on the side/total. Going through my twitter feed when this happens, I enjoy seeing all of the #MOOSE reaction. One of the projects I’m working on is a #MOOSE index which will rank teams/coaches based on late game heroics or huge fails ATS. One of the components of the index is 4th quarter comebacks/blown leads ATS. Below is a list from the last 5 seasons outlining each team’s comebacks/blown leads ATS in the 4th quarter.
