The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


The Pac-12 now has six teams in the Top 25 despite USC falling out. The Trojans could climb back in this week if they can upset No. 10 Utah at home Friday night as a 4-point underdog. Circa Sports opened the game at ‘Pick’, and Utah took some stronger bets to move the line a full 4.5 points until settling at -4. No. 4 LSU (-23) has also seen a sharp move upward in the betting line after Circa Sports opened LSU -19 at Vanderbilt. The Tigers have a bye next week. No. 25 TCU opened -13.5 at Circa Sports, but SMU has taken money in the crosstown rivalry, and the Horned Frogs are down to a 9.5-point favorite.

From this week’s Playbook Totals Tipsheet: The Tennessee Titans are 0-5 UNDER as road favorite, and 1-5 UNDER before a non-conference road game. The Jacksonville Jaguars are 0-6 UNDER when coming off two losses-exact, and 0-3 UNDER in their last three division home games.

Axios Sports reports that coming off a 2019 national championship, Virginia men’s basketball coach Tony Bennett turned down a $500,000 raise, and instead asked that the money be used to pay his staff more and help the program. “I have more than enough, and if there are ways that this can help out the athletic department, the other programs and coaches by not tying up so much [in men’s basketball], that’s my desire,” said Bennett. Seems as if he left his heart in Charlottesville.
