Behind the Lines – Week 1

Posted by rtmsf on December 6th, 2008


Obsessed With Sports will be providing coverage for RTC throughout the season.

Welcome to the first edition of Behind the Lines. On a weekly basis, we will cover the betting lines that stand out from the week that was in college basketball. In general I will stick to the relevant games that the majority of people can relate to. However, if there is an obscure team that scores a big upset or a powerhouse that can cover the spread against a cup cake then you will certainly see it here as well.

As far as format you will see below the day then a heading describing the game to follow. After that this match-up is listed with the point spread and then the final score. Lastly, we have the team who covered and by how much.

This was Feast Week on ESPN; thus there were some big games headlining the Thanksgiving week festivities.

Friday 11/28

Cover(s) of the night by an underdog:

California +6.5 at UNLV
California 72, UNLV 55
