Picking college football games against the spread today? Think about this: Is Notre Dame really an 8.5-point favorite over USC when the two teams meet in South Bend?

According to the Las Vegas oddsmakers, that's the line. But while our heart is telling us that the Irish haven't really proven a thing yet and a touchdown-plus betting line seems to be a little out of whack, our head is telling us "This is why oddsmakers make a living doing what they do."
