    this is one sweeeeeeeet scooop, wolfman!!

    one of the ChuckerBucker’s summer jobs in college was dealing blackjack in vegas, so i know all about gambling and spreads…..and based on this information, i can conclude that bettors are flocking to bet that Southern Cal will continue to NOT “cover” the “spread” which is the amount of points the betting “favorite” is predicted to win by.

    it is almost unheard of for the spread to move more than 2pts the week before the game absent an injury to a crucial player, so this i would definitely consider this a “red flag”!!

    keeep oooooooon scoopin’ wolfman!!!!

    Using Scott’s logic, this move in the spread is potentially making USC a ‘stronger’ team. If we accept his premise that covering the spread is an indication of strength, and if USC wins by 11 (28-17), then USC would be a ‘strong” team with the current spread, but a ‘weak’ team by the original spread.

    So as the moves lower, USC gets stronger by the day!
