UTAH +9.5 Point Spread

Over 143.5 Game Totals

Against the Spread Pick

The Utes have started to play better as of late, picking up wins in their last two games. Note that these two games were played at home, whereas they lost three consecutive road games before the home wins. Utah is now just 3-4 in the conference, meaning they need wins on the road to bolster their resume. On the other side, USC has been one of the best teams in the PAC-12. They are 5-2 in conference play with their last win coming over Oregon State. The Trojans have covered their last five games, however they have really struggled to cover against Utah. The Utes are 10-2 ATS against the Trojans in the last 12 meetings. I have seen USC collapse in games this season, so I cannot trust them to win by double-digits. If I were to bet this game, it would be Utah plus the points, but I only really like this pick as a lean.

Over Under Pick

The total in this game is 143.5 and the over is what I would be looking to play. Both these teams are averaging 73 or more points per game. On the road, Utah have had their struggles, allowing an average of 84 points. These teams have played to the over in 10 of their last 14 meetings and that is where I will lean for this game as well.
