Kickoff from the LA Coliseum is set for 3:30 ET. USC (3-1, 3-1 ATS) crushed Arizona State 44-24 as slim 3.5-point favorites as visitors last season. HC Pete Carroll’s club has dominated ASU (2-3, 1-3 ATS) going 8-0 SU and 6-2 ATS since 2000. Football betting followers who have backed Arizona State over its past three games have had much to complain about.
Last week, they lost 24-14 to Cal as 9.5-point underdogs on the NCAA betting line, and they have now failed to cover the spread in each of their past three games. HC Dennis Erickson’s Sun Devils averaged 32.3 points per game last year, but they have only averaged 14.7 points in their L/3 games.
They are 114th in the nation in terms of running the ball at 85.4 yards per game. The lack of offense has resulted in Sun Devils bettors coming up with three straight losing tickets by an average of 12.8 points per game.
The Trojans trailed Oregon 10-3 in the beginning of the 2nd quarter, but from that point on, QB Mark Sanchez and USC flexed its muscles by scoring the next 41 points to cruise to the rolling 44-10 home win and cover. USC’s college football betting gurus were rewarded for laying the 16-points on the closing football betting line against the Ducks.
Sanchez and Mitch Mustain combined to throw for 452 yards and four scores. Five different players recorded at least 70 yards receiving. The Southern Cal defense forced two turnovers and held a potent Ducks offense to just 242 yards from scrimmage. Just another domination of yet another conference opponent for Carroll and company…
The Trojans are favored by a hefty 25-point this week. Be careful if you plan on laying the chalk this week! USC is just 3-10 ATS in their L/13 October games. Whether you’re looking to bet on the Trojans, the Sun Devils, or perhaps the ‘total’, Sports-Gambling.com Sportsbook has all of your NCAA football betting options covered.
