NCAA football betting fans were impressed with USC’s blowout win last week while Ohio State had a major online betting scare that they barely survived. The USC Trojans had an impressive NCAA football betting opener as they destroyed San Jose State 56-3 for an easy online betting payoff as 33.5-point home chalks.
Freshman quarterback Matt Barkley shook off the early jitters for an impressive NCAA football betting debut in which he went 15-19 for 233 yards and threw for 1 touchdown. The Men of Troy dominated San Jose State with an online betting advantage of 621-121 in total yards.
USC looked like a well balanced NCAA football betting machine as they had a whopping 343 yards on 45 rushing attempts. Joe McKnight led all ball carriers with 145 yards on 14 carries and 2 touchdowns for a dominant NCAA football betting debut.
USC showed every indication of being a team that reloads instead of rebuilds and a top NCAA football betting contender for the national championship. Ohio State, on the other hand, barely got by the Naval Academy 31-27 as 22-point NCAA football betting home favorites.
Ohio State held a small 367-342 edge in total yards and may have been peaking ahead to this weekend’s NCAA football betting matchup with USC. The entire Buckeye effort last week was flat and there were no standout performances to speak of. Last year USC humiliated Ohio State 35-3 as 11-point NCAA football betting home favorites.
But the Men of Troy now hit the road and face a revenge minded Ohio State team that has failed to cover 6 out of their last 7 NCAA football betting appearances at “The Shoe”. USC, on the other hand, has failed to cover 4 out of their last 5 games on the road.
This game features one of the best coaching matchups you’ll ever see in Pete Carroll of Southern Cal and Jim Tressel of Ohio State. Tressel has been under heat recently for Ohio State’s poor showings against elite teams such as USC and would love to silence his critics.
