The USC Trojans have not won a football game inside the state of Oregon since 2005. Even though they’re on the upswing, they’ll have a tough time this weekend at the Oregon State Beavers.

Why To Bet On USC

The Trojans are beginning to hit their stride and produce what is, under the circumstances, a very fine season. USC stands at 7-3 after an impressive road win at the Arizona Wildcats. The Trojans pulled out a 24-21 decision against the Wildcats by pounding the ball between the tackles, emphasizing ball control, and getting multiple turnovers from a mistake-prone Arizona offense that imploded in the red zone. USC held the ball for 37 minutes and 27 seconds against the Wildcats, which is a necessary part of a formula for victory in any game the Trojans play. USC’s defense has been thinned out by defections caused by NCAA sanctions levied last June. This is a thin team, but with a ball-control offense and a positive turnover ratio, the Trojans defeated Arizona on the road and will be able to handle other teams not named Oregon. USC will be confident heading into Corvallis, and what’s more is that the Trojans can certainly duplicate the Arizona blueprint against the Beavers. Oregon State just got smacked by Washington State, losing 31-14 to a Cougar club that had not won a Pac-10 game since November of 2008 and had not won a Pac-10 road game since November of 2007. Oregon State has never recovered from the injury to starting receiver James Rodgers, older brother of Beaver running back Jacquizz Rodgers. The injury has robbed the OSU offense of all its timing while depriving freshman quarterback Ryan Katz of his most reliable target. Katz has gone into a tailspin and has looked lost without James Rodgers to throw to. The ingredients are there for a USC win in the state of Oregon, an elusive prospect for the Men of Troy.

Why To Bet On Oregon State

The Beavers beat USC as a huge underdog in Corvallis in each of the schools’ last two meetings on the Oregon State campus. When you realize that USC finished in the top five of the national rankings at the end of the 2002 season, it’s also worth noting that Oregon State beat USC in Corvallis during that particular college football campaign. Only in 2004 has USC won at Oregon State in the past nine years. Reser Stadium has been a nightmarish place to play for the boys from Southern California. Oregon State is a team that’s struggling right now, but the Beavers always gear up for USC. Moreover, they were almost certainly looking ahead to the Trojans last week, since they showed no interest in playing the Washington State Cougars. OSU never should have lost to Wazzu, but the Beavers will now regroup and give their all against the Trojans. Oregon State must win this game to have any reasonable hope of making a bowl game in 2010. At 4-5, OSU has to win two of three in order to qualify for the postseason; given the fact that the Stanford Cardinals and Oregon are the Beavers’ final two opponents, a win over USC is a non-negotiable requirement. This game possesses great urgency for the Beaver program, and that’s a good reason to pick Oregon State on Saturday.

How The Game Will Play Out

USC is steadily improving and Oregon State is steadily getting worse. However, Corvallis is a town where USC rarely plays well. OSU will treat this game as a very big deal and regroup. The Beavers will play with energy and inspiration, and that’s why they’ll win this game outright.
