Memphis is Eight-Point Favorite Over USC at MSG 

We know that readers of this website would ever place a bet on a basketball game, but if you're looking to see what the professional odds-makers think about tonight's game between 2nd-ranked Memphis and 25th-ranked USC, we suggest you check out TheSpread.com.

Here's a sample: Oddsmakers from Bodog have made Memphis -8 point spread favorites for today's game. Current public betting information shows that 71 percent of bets for this game have been placed on Memphis -8.

Rose and Mayo were two of the most heavily recruited guards in their class, and both figure to be early selections in next summer's NBA draft. Both players have also gotten off to hot starts in their collegiate careers.

The 6-foot-4 Rose has helped Memphis (6-0) match the highest ranking in school history. The Tigers, who are No. 2 for the first time since the 1985-86 season, haven't started 6-0 since 1995-96.

Rose is averaging 17 points, and is coming off perhaps his best game of the season. He had 19 points and 12 assists in a 104-82 win over Austin Peay last Tuesday.
