College football gambling fans are thinking that the USC Trojans could be a very live home dog Saturday night with the college football odds as they are coming off their best game of the season.
The USC Trojans will host the #2 Oregon Ducks on Saturday night with a telecast on ABC. Kickoff is set for 8:05 PM Eastern and Sports-Gambling opened with Oregon as a 7 point road favorite.
Oregon has a college football bet record of 7-0 straight up and 5-2 against the spread. The Ducks are coming off a 60-13 blowout home win last week over UCLA on Thursday Night Football and went over the total for the 5th time this season. Oregon’s offense should be investigated by Homeland Security for being a terrorist threat.
The Ducks score at a frightening and lightning quick pace and rank 1st in the nation for points. The defense gets lost in the headlines but ranks 12th for points allowed. LaMichael James looks like the leading Heisman trophy candidate with 991 yards rushing while new quarterback Darron Thomas has 1521 yards passing.
USC has a college football betting record of 5-2 straight up and 4-3 against the spread while going over the total in 5 out of 7 games. USC is coming off a bye that followed a 48-14 blowout win over Cal as the defense was simplified and turned loose on the Bears with its best performance of the season.
Sophomore quarterback Matt Barkley has the hot hand with 1869 yards passing and is looking like the best signal caller in the Pac 10 Conference. USC’s offense is ranked 14th in scoring.
Oregon has a college football gambling record of 13-6 against the spread when coming off a straight up win. USC has paid out in just 5 out of their last 16 Pac 10 games and is just 2-9 against the spread following a payout in their previous game.
Oregon has gone over the total in 9 of their last 12 games following a straight up win but USC has gone under the total in 18 of their last 24 when coming off a payout in their previous game.
