Three weeks into the 2019 program, the USC Trojans have experienced both ups and downs. Clay Helton knows Southern Cal can not be down at all with a tough 3-game stretch coming against ranked teams, and it begins with a brief week to prepare for the No. 10 Utah Utes who visit Los Angeles for a Friday night Pac-12 struggle.
Heritage delivered Utah out other shops carrying a tiny bit of extra juice is -3 1/2ed with by it playing with the Utes that are currently enjoying with their Pac-12 opener, to a -4 distribute.
Although the two wins didn’t come against what you would call contest kyle Whittingham brings the Utes to LA with a spotless record. A final against Idaho State this week could look impressive, after the first quarter and the group has been penalized 11 times for over a hundred yards in the lopsided 39, however, the Utah offense was cluttered.
Some of the reason for not covering a disperse from the success can be credited to Whittingham moving with lots of 2nd- and 3rd-stringers beginning. Tyler Huntley was quite efficient completing 15-of-19 for 282 yards and 3 scores. He’s yet to throw an interception this year, also Zach Moss had his next game on the floor despite playing only 20 minutes.
Utah’s most impressive win came from the show opener, a closing as 5-point chalk in BYU. That identical BYU bunch USC in overtime last weekend, 30-27. The Trojans closed as 41/2-point favorites on the NCAAF Odds board, along with also a pick in the match by freshman QB Kedon Slovis secured the defeat at overtime only following Southern Cal wrapped around then-No. 45-20, 23 Stanford.
The Trojans have road dates with No. 22 Washington and No. 7 Notre Dame following this matchup, a bye week scheduled involving those competitions. Bettors might want to check on injury upgrades for RB Vavae Malepeai, who had been shaken up late against BYU, and older DE Christian Rector, that was not in uniform in BYU because of an injury.
Southern Cal has won five of the eight matchups with Utah, and owns an 11-6 edge in the competition. The Utes spotted the Trojans a 14-0 lead in Salt Lake City poured to a 48-21 win to easily cover as 61/2-point favorites. Utah’s win marked the sixth successive victory for your home team in this show, the victors covering five times in that span with the four clashes moving’over’ the totals.
Before going to the window, bettors will want to look at the forecast, however, it looks fine now with sunshine for the 5 neighborhood boot along with temps in the upper-70s. My NCAAF pick that is absolutely free will be to dollar the house team pay fad in the rivalry and take Utah.
