The visiting Buckeyes come in ranked the #3 team in the land, while the Trojans are atop the heap currently #1 in the country. Sports-Gambling.com has all of your football betting options covered for the biggest game of the young season set to kick from Los Angeles at 8:00 PM ET; the game will be televised nationally on ABC.
Will RB Beanie Wells be back in the backfield for the Buckeyes on Saturday night? That seems to be the million dollar question in Columbus since their star running back suffered a foot injury in their first game against Youngstown State. The offense was lackluster against Ohio for their football betting fans, as they trailed going into the 4th quarter against the Bobcats.
Football betting odds had the Buckeyes favored by a whopping 33.5-point, but their 26-14 victory was nowhere near enough. Ohio State only managed 272 yards of offense, a far cry from the 495 they tallied against Youngstown State.
Meanwhile, it appears to be business as usual for the Trojans, who are well-rested and coming off of arguably the most impressive victory for any team in the land when they disposed of the Virginia Cavaliers 52-7 in the first week of college football action.
The NCAA football odds had the Trojans as +365 favorites to win the BCS Championship at the beginning of the season, but their football betting followers have seen the odds drop as low as +150 after just two weeks of play. Oddsmakers opened the Trojans up as 7-point home favorites in this Big 10/Pac-10 showdown, but the line has risen as high as 11.5 with the ‘total’ now at 43.
Even though NCAA betting aficionados have backed USC so far, consider backing the Buckeyes in this match-up since they’re 11-3 ATS in their L/14 road contests. Sports-Gambling.com Sportsbook is your home for all of your football betting needs, whether it be spread, moneyline, or ‘total’ wagering.
It’s the biggest game of the college football betting season, so open an account right now and get your bets down on all the action!
