Dayton goes on the road to take on a non conference opponent in USC. Dayton has won 8 of their last 10 while USC has lost 7 of the last 8. USC will have a major size advantage in the frontcourt, thanks to a pair of 7 footers. Dayton has the best player on the court in Kevin Dillard, who is one of the best PG's right now. I also think Dayton has the better bench in this contest. Leaning Dayton here. Any info on USC' homecourt? Big advantage or no?

Lots of empty seats, but USC is used to that.  I'm thinking of playing Dayton here.  I watched USC play Georgia last Saturday (2 sad excuses of big conference hoops teams) and USC's big guys were very slow.  A smaller, quicker team does well against them, plus they just aren't that good.  Better than last season, but that isn't saying much.

kenpom likes dayton by a bucket, scoresandodds prediction is dayton by 4. opened usc -1 and went to -2.5 or -3. pinnacle at -3 too.
it seems like nice play from a gut look, but something must be off. Most people and consensus numbers are for dayton too. Makes me just want to stay away and play tulane instead. I think i'm just playing tulane... my book has 9. Anyone have any perspective on the total in that game?

I'm on Dayton + the points.  Everything about that line, and the line movement, make my gut churn...it just screams "trap"!  But maybe that's what the line makers are just trying to do...get us to over-think it and just lay off.  So for better or worse, go Flyers!
