Against The Spread Pick
USC looks to continue their success at home against a Washington State team who struggles heavily on the road. The last matchup between these two saw a very exciting overtime victory for the Trojans. USC has been rolling at home with a record of 10-2 behind Freshman Okongwu. Washington State’s road defense has been questionable at best allowing an average of 77.2 points per game leading to a road record of 1-6. The Trojans offense is averaging 74.2 at home. USC is 8-2 ATS in their last ten games. The cougars are 0-5 ATS in their last five against USC and 1-6 in their last seven road games. USC’s defense combined with better rebounding and a poor road Washington State team on the road will lead to a dominant win for the Trojans. USC will cover.
Over Under Pick
The under is the play here. USC is a different team at home allowing only 65.3 points per game. With Washington States incompetence on the road I see this being a game that is controlled from start to finish by the Trojans. USC has not looked as sharp in recent games offensively however, only averaging 65.6 points in their last six games. Unders are a combined 9-3 in these two teams last six games. USC unders are 16-9 on the season.
