Sports gambling online handicappers have seen the USC Trojans be up-ended as the dominant gambling sports power of the Pac 10 as The Men of Troy have had an epic collapse. Entering the 2009 sports gambling online college football season USC was again considered the gambling sports favorite to win the Pac 10.
The Oregon Ducks and California Golden Bears were designated as sports gambling long shots to upend the Trojans. Southern Cal has given everyone a classic sports gambling online lesson about overlays on overrated teams as they were 7-3 straight while going 2-8 against the spread.
USC and their gambling sports backers have finally paid the price for their sports gambling reputation of being able to just “plug it in” and “turn it on and off.” The first sports gambling online shocker was when USC was upset at Washington 13-16 as 20.5-point road favorites.
A severe sports gambling online reality check came later on October 31 when Oregon blew out USC 47-20 as 3-point home dogs. The wrong team was clearly the sports gambling online favorite in that one.
USC then completed their sports gambling online collapse on November 14 when they were taken apart by Stanford 21-55 as 10.5-point home chalks. Oregon and Oregon State emerged in the Pac 10 as the leading sports gambling online contenders for the Rose Bowl and will play in the “Civil War” matchup on December 3 for the title.
Oregon’s explosive offense has led them to a sports gambling online record of 7-4 against the spread. The Ducks ranked 9th in the nation for scoring. Oregon State has also offered sports gambling online value with a mark of 6-4 against the spread and 6 payouts in their last 7 games heading into the “Civil War.”
Oregon State has often been overlooked as a top flight value on the board and this only serves to make them more of a bargain for smart handicappers. This year’s Pac 10 race show that there is no such thing as a foregone conclusion and that USC is not an automatic winner, especially with a freshman quarterback and leaky defense.
