Oregon USC Betting Predictions – USC Must Score Big To Overtake Oregon

Posted by Blake Frazier on 10/30/2012 6:06:08 PM

The Oregon Ducks and the USC Trojans have been headed on a collision course all season long. These Pac-12 rivals and heavyweights finally meet in Los Angeles with so much on the line.

Oregon Ducks @ USC Trojans – Saturday, November 3   
Football betting line: Oregon -8

Why Oregon Will Win

No bet on college football is automatic, but it is clear that the Ducks are a better team than USC, and you don't have to present a more complicated reason why Oregon will win on Saturday evening. Coach Chip Kelly has established a track record of success that USC has been unable to match over the past four years. USC carried the torch for the Pac-10 (now Pac-12) from 2002 through 2008, but Oregon is now the team that represents the conference in national competitions. The Ducks have won three straight league titles and would put themselves in position to host the Pac-12 Championship Game on Nov. 30 if they can win here. Oregon is the team that deserves to be trusted; it has a better reputation than USC in college football circles right now.

To express why Oregon is better, just realize that the Ducks haven't missed a beat on offense despite handing the keys to new quarterback Marcus Mariota. A lot of pundits around the country were expecting an appreciable decline from UO's offense when Darron Thomas surprisingly entered the NFL Draft a year early. However, Mariota and backup Bryan Bennett have held up extremely well under pressure. They have lent stability and strength to an offense that is still based on the running game, but needs an occasional pass play to keep defenses honest. USC's defense is skilled, but it does not have the athleticism that can contain Oregon on the edges. The Ducks will get their share of points, putting the burden on the Trojans to keep up.

Why USC Will Win

Even mma betting experts know that USC could win because this is the Trojans' version of the Super Bowl. USC has struggled and slumbered at times this season, but coach Lane Kiffin will have his team ready for Oregon. The Trojans went into Eugene, Ore., last season and stunned the Ducks in one of the 2011 campaign's most memorable moments. USC told Oregon that it had returned from its period of decline, and the memory of that game will fill the Trojans with a copious quantity of confidence. Barkley could very well play his best game of 2012, and that would likely be enough to carry USC to the winner's circle.

Who Will Win

Don't overthink this game. Stick to your instincts and trust what you have seen from these two teams this season. Ultimately, Oregon has achieved too richly and proven too much over the years to be doubted in a big game such as this one. The Ducks' speed and defense will overwhelm USC on the big stage in Los Angeles. Oregon will score at least 45 points, probably more than 50.
