Power rankings are a tool that should be in every handicapper’s arsenal.  They provide you with a simple and basic predicted line on a game.  Some offer specific numbers whereas others just rank the order of the teams.  You can combine power rankings to come up with your own unique take on each team.  I don’t have a specific power ranking formula myself, but rather I use a hybrid of several known sources.  Below is a list of power rankings that I have found online.
