Sounds about right ... it's not going to be easy.

UConn has a way of throwing in a stinker when their 1st BE game comes on the road. Add in a 9pm start (WTF?) and Florida and we have some disaster potential. Having said that I say we win by double digits.

USF always plays UConn tough, but they are 7-6 this year. I see UConn winning by at least 8.

Not to be arrogant, but that line is way too low. South florida sucks, if uconn shows up they should win easily.

They are on winter break I take it. Shouldn't be a terribly big or raucous crowd????

South Florida plays really slow, so the 6.5 indicates a larger margin of points per possession difference proportionally than vs. a faster opponent. But still, probably too low.

Those oddsmakers, they know their sh&t. Score playing right around the line.

UConn was on track to cover until that missed front end by Boatright (could have pushed lead to 10) and then the USF 3.

What a roller-coaster betting ride.

UConn again looked likely to cover until Lamb fouled that guy shooting the awful-looking 3.

Then UConn looked likely to push 7/cover 6.5 until Lamb missed that last FT

And then that guy hit the miracle 3 at the buzzer to end all doubt.

This is why I refuse to give Vegas credit. That sequence is one in a hundred. They get no respect from me for predictions when it's a BS cover as happens 40% of the time in CBB.

(And no, I did not bet on the game. Finishes like that are why I don't bet on sports.)

I can't bet on my team giving points. I never want to be in a postion to be pissed about a win.

I found a site I can bet fake money (but then cash out for half the value if I win over certain amount, and if I lose I watch some ads and try again), so it takes all the sting away from losing and just lets you enjoy the ride.
