and I thought I liked USC this season


Looks decent to me .... Maybe hedge a Little with Tyler Wilson 

if Arky goes 1-1 vs Bama and LSU and he goes nutz maybe they win the WEST ( JL Smith GULP)   but at 33-1 why not ???

Whatever book that let you parlay those is pretty stupid, IMO.  Would they also let you throw in USC to win P12 South, Barkley to finish top 3 Heisman, and USC to play in a BCS bowl?

But that is a good bet if the book doesn't cancel it.

Its sportsinteraction . If they cancel it so be it. All 3 almost have to happen for the other 2 (obviously Barkley doesnt have to win the Heisman for USC to win the title, but if they go undefeated he will have to be in the top 3 for the trophy).

Thats a good bet

Not saying it is a winner, but if you tie up your money in futures, make it worth the risk.  I may sprinkle a little coin on the same.

The value and the correlation is strong in this one. Seriously, given that USC has won the Championship, does it NOT win it's conference and how does Barkley NOT win the Heisman?

Very true. Obviously at 30-1 it shouldnt hit, but if one of those things happens the other 2 have a great shot as well.....

Hey Train, I tried placing the same wager just the other day, but it stated that the plays were correlated and couldn't be placed within the same parlay. If I were you, I would contact Customer Service and find out if they are willing to honour this if it wins. I would hate to see the old trick where the book wins regardless of the outcome, if you win they void, and if you lose they take your money.

USC rolls in week one.  They play Hawaii.  Good jump on the Heisman.  May take Matt to finish no less than third.  -180.  Think he he is pretty safe to do at least that.

True odds of it hitting are 20-1 or so IMO. It is very correlated, but you didn't get great individual lines.
