Over the last five years, home teams are 50-29 against the spread on ESPN college football Thursday night games.Home underdogs are even better at 23-12.
Strange, but true.
Tonight’s ESPN game is USC-California. Cal is home, and they are a 3-point underdog (3.5 at some books).
So if you want to bet USC, beware.
We wrote about this trend a few weeks ago before the South Florida-Pittsburgh game. Pitt was a home underdog, and they promptly smashed USF 44-17.
Just a heads up.
