The #18 USC Trojans take on the #17 UCLA Bruins Saturday at 3:05 ET. College football odds are available at Bovada sportsbook.
The Trojans snapped a two game losing streak last week and now sit at 7-3 SU, but only 3-7 ATS. USC started the season with high hopes but were quickly dashed with a Week 3 loss at Stanford. After that, they reeled off four straight wins before losing to Arizona and Oregon in back to back games. They were competitive against Oregon, scoring 51 points, but were torched for 62. The Trojans have had trouble against the spread all season, only covering against Arizona St, Colorado, and California.
UCLA looks to avenge a 50-0 loss to USC in last year’s contest, and they have a much better squad to accomplish it. They come into the game with a mark of 8-2 SU and 6-4 ATS, including a 66-10 win over Arizona, who beat USC. They are riding a four game win streak after losing to Cal earlier in the season, averaging 44 points per game.
The Trojans are a 4 point favorite. Looking at their common opponents, you see a lot of similarities; therefore it makes sense to take UCLA +4, with revenge at best online sportsbooks.
