There are riches in the niches.

Take Jeff Scott, please.

He only has 3-18 total in his first two seasons as USF head coach. But give him more than seven days to prepare and he is 5-0 against the spread (ATS). The Bulls will leave on October 22 before heading to Houston a week later.

Coaches who maximize goodbye weeks and long weeks consistently beat the number. Below are the top 10, along with the week they all came out of a two week hiatus this season.

minimum 9 games


10. Kyle Whittingham, Utah (since 2005)

ATS after a goodbye: 19-11-2 (60%)
2022 Goodbye: October 22 (Washington State October 27)

Few coaches are better with Whittingham’s extra time, who is also 9-5 ATS in bowls matches.

ATS after a goodbye: 7-3 (70%)

Games after goodbye week:: 15 October (against FAU on 22 October) and 12 November (against FIU on 19 November)

ATS after a goodbye: 7-2-1 (78%)
