College Basketball Betting Trends

USC

The Trojans are 5-1 ATS in their last six road games. Southern Cal is 5-2 ATS in its last seven games overall.

Washington State

The Wildcats are 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall. Arizona is 6-2 ATS in its last eight Thursday games.

Prediction:

The Wildcats have been inconsistent over the last couple months, but they only have one road loss all season and that was an 84-80 defeat against now second-ranked Gonzaga. Arizona is second in the conference in both adjusted offensive and defensive efficiency, while the Trojans struggle offensively and are coming off a brutal performance at home. I feel comfortable betting on the Wildcats to put together a convincing victory.
