Week 8 notes...Hey guys, I unearthed some interesting situational trends/angles for this week. First off, road teams coming off of a tie are 0-7 SU and ATS the following week, losing by an avg. of 19.3 points. This makes sense considering they played an entire extra quarter, and now have to travel. This puts Seattle and Arizona in very tough spots. Seattle has to go on at 10 AM local time against Drew Bress. The Saints are averaging 36 PPG at home this season. Seattle's defense was also on the field for 47 minutes on Sunday! That's like playing a game and a half in one night. The Cardinals have to face a Panthers team coming off of a bye. Teams off a bye are 34-15 SU against teams who just played an OT game...I like how Walter lists Carolina as an underrated team. They are only giving the standard 3 points this week, and the public isn't really betting on them that much as of right now. They final appear to be a in a decent betting position....On to the New England game. Under Belichick, the Patriots are 10-2 ATS and 11-1 SU in regular season revenge games. With Brady, they are 8-0 SUATS. Brady didn't play in the first game against the Bills, but he should be completely focused considering this is his first game vs. an AFC East foe since his return. And finally, the last four times New England was looking for revenge in the regular season, they won by a combined score of 166-51! Trends and angles don't mean everything, but I still wanted to pass along this info.
These are the school's prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft by status * - denotes 2014 prospect ** - denotes 2015 prospect.

A.J. Klein, ILB, Iowa State
Height: 6-1. Weight: 250. Arm: 32.78 40 Time: 4.66. Projected Round (2012): 4-6. 4/6/13: Klein managed 117 tackles, 3.5 tackles for a loss, one sack, one pass broken up and an interception returned 87 yards for a touchdown in 2012. He had 116 tackles, 7.5 tackles for a loss, six passes broken up, two sacks and an interception in 2011. Klein was better than expected at the Combine.
Jake Knott, OLB, Iowa State
Height: 6-3. Weight: 239. Arm: 31.08. Projected 40 Time: 4.72. Projected Round (2013): 5-6. 4/6/13: Knott recorded 79 tackles, two interceptions, two forced fumbles and six passes broken up in 2012, but missed the final five games.
8/29/12: Knott had a strong junior season with 115 tackles, four forced fumbles and two interceptions. The team captain was a First-Team All-Big XII selection.
Knott broke out with a fabulous sophomore season, recording 130 tackles, four interceptions, four forced fumbles and five passes broken up. He is a smart, instinctive defender who looks a little lacking in the physical-skills department.
