The opening line for Saturday's Syracuse-South Florida game? 10.0 in favor of the Bulls. Fair enough, I suppose. The Orange to earn respect head-to-head.
Then again, maybe Syracuse has earned a little bit of respect in the eyes of Vegas already. The line has already dropped 2.5 points to 7.5. Does Vegas think Syracuse a little better than expected? Does Vegas think USF isn't quite s good as previously thought?
Perhaps a little of both, eh?
And take it for what it's worth but the Over/Under is hovering at 44.
