As I was perusing the lines for this Saturday’s games and looking for some winners, I was SHOCKED at the UK line. South Carolina a three point favorite? Are you kidding me? I understand that South Carolina can win the game….but UK is at home, coming off a good Alabama performance and South Carolina has been only solid for one game this season (the last one). I can see calling the Cats a favorite….I can see calling the game a toss-up. But in Commonwealth Stadium, the Cats cant be a three point dog….that is saying they are a 6 point dog on a neutral field. That to me, is impossible.
Yes beating Spurrier will be hard. But I look at sports wagering as a “if they played 100 times, what would happen” type of deal. The median performance for 100 games, is not the Cocks by 3 (in my view, the Cats win this game 58 out of 100 times….very scientific formulation by the way). What does that mean? Load up on the Cats.
