College football betting handicappers have their choice to bet on the powerful Trojans or the rebuilding Huskies who may have a hidden edge against the NCAA football odds. First year Washington head coach Steve Sarkisian served as USC offensive coordinator before taking over this college football betting season as the Head Husky.
If anyone knows the Trojan system, trends, strategies, and personnel it is Sarkisian. USC opened as 21-point road chalks on the NCAA football odds board for this one. The USC Trojans are 2-0 straight up and 1-1 against the college football betting board.
Last week USC scored an 18-15 road win at Ohio State as 7-point road favorites as they failed to get the cash, needing a late touchdown with just over a minute to go to escape with the win. The Washington Huskies are 1-1 straight up and against the spread as they will play their third consecutive home game this week.
Last week the Huskies failed to cover the college football betting line in a 42-23 win over Idaho as 20-point home chalks. Last year Washington suffered a college football betting humiliation at USC in a 0-56 loss as 45.5-point dogs.
Washington had covered the college football betting board in the 3 previous head to head matchups in this series before that debacle. Washington has trended consistently bad over the past few college football betting seasons as they have gotten the cash in just 26 out of their last 85 games and have covered just 15 of their last 53 home games.
Washington has covered just 4 out of their last 15 games in which they are coming off a straight up win. USC has show good college football betting resilience as they have gotten the cash in 8 out of their last 9 games when coming off a failure against the board. Sarkisian should have his Huskies ready against his mentor Pete Carroll.
USC may also have the potential to suffer a letdown in this one after their epic win in the national spotlight last week at Ohio State. The question is if UW has the manpower to last.
