How To Bet On USC UCLA – The Trojans Complete its Collapse

USC Trojans @ UCLA Bruins – Saturday November 17, 2012 3:05PM EST

The NCAA football betting experts had such high hopes for the 2012 USC Trojans. Quarterback Matt Barkley was supposed to win the Heisman Trophy running away and lead the Trojans to the BCA National Championship. The Trojans have been on suspension from post-season play the past two years, so this was supposed to be the team’s triumphant return to glory. Everything started off just fine, but it became apparent that this was not going to be the Trojans’ season. Now that USC has fallen all the way to number 18 in the rankings and Matt Barkley has fallen off the Heisman landscape, none of the Trojans’ goals for 2012 will be met and the UCLA Bruins intend to make things worse for the Trojans.

The UCLA Bruins have moved up to number 17 in the rankings and the team is probably looking at a decent bowl bid when the season is over. The sports betting experts were not quite sure what to expect from UCLA this season, but a strong offense has helped to compensate for a defense that may not be playing quite up to par. All in all, the Bruins look to be in a perfect position to make life miserable for its intra-state rivals from Southern California.

Why USC Will Win

The Trojans still have some tricks up its sleeve that can be used to win football games. USC can still score points and the online betting experts cannot help but think that the Trojans’ air game matches up very well with the Bruins’ weak defensive secondary. USC will have to be very careful because it has lost its last two games against ranked opponents and the 62-51 shootout with Oregon showed that even the USC offense has limitations. Matt Barkley may not win the Heisman, but he is still playing for placement in the 2013 NFL draft and that means that he will be showing off that cannon arm of his all day long.

Why UCLA Will Win

After completely destroying Arizona a couple of weeks ago, the Bruins has developed significant confidence in its offense, especially its passing game. USC came into this week with a good defense, but it is a defense that has been touched for a lot of points lately. The Bruins will keep the pressure on the Trojans’ defense all day long and look to walk away with a one-sided win over USC.

The Bottom Line

USC is coming off of a two-game losing streak and its confidence is shot. The Bruins is trying to move up the rankings a little more and get itself into a higher profile bowl game. In this game, the UCLA defense should be able to shut down the USC offense while the Bruins’ passing game rolls up yards and points over a staggering USC defense.

Pick: UCLA
