According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, the over/under win total odds for USC has been set at 9 this season. The over has odds of +120, while the under has a money line of -150.

USC is coming off a 10-4 season that started slow and led to the firing of Lane Kiffin. Steve Sarkisian is taking over the program after leaving Washington with a 34-29 record.

The Trojans are bringing back six starters on offense this season, led by quarterback Cody Kessler, who threw for 2,968 yards and 20 touchdowns. Kessler showed some growth as the 2013 season went along, which shows promise for the 2013 season. Kessler has receiver Nelson Agholor back, who caught 56 passes for 918 yards and six touchdowns. The Trojans have three starters back on the line, including all on Kessler’s blindside. USC will need to replace its players in the backfield, but that shouldn’t be an issue due to USC’s strong recruiting over years.

On defense, USC has eight starters back. The Trojans will be strong on the back end, but will need to see some development on the front line. USC will go with the 3-4 defense under Justin Wilcox. Leonard Williams, has six sacks last year and is back at defensive end. A lot will be put on his shoulders. Hayes Pullard had 94 tackles a year ago to lead the Trojans and he will be leading the back seven this year. In the secondary Su’a Cravens and Josh Shaw each had four interceptions and both are back this year.

USC will be tested early this year, facing Fresno State right off the bat. That is followed up by a road trip to Stanford in week two. The Trojans will also meet Notre Dame to end the season in non-conference action. Other games in Pac-12 play feature road trips to Arizona, Utah, Washington State and UCLA. Home conference games include Oregon State, Arizona State, Colorado and California. Sarkisian has the talent to get to nine wins, but a lot of that will depend on how the team comes together. The schedule isn’t overloaded, but the Pac-12 has improved in recent years.
