USC vs. BYU College Basketball Prediction
There’s some value in the underdog today, as the Trojans are 7-1 against the spread in their last eight games when receiving points. They’re also 5-1 against the number in their last six games when facing an opponent with a winning percentage above .600 and the Trojans have been profitable following a win as well, cashing four of their last five tickets when also winning their previous contest.
USC is 9-3 at the betting window in its last 12 games following an ATS win as well, and is 6-2 against the spread in its last eight games when facing an opponent with a winning record. In their last 20 neutral site games, the Trojans are a profitable 15-5 at the betting window and in their last 11 games overall, they’re 8-3 against the spread. Even though BYU is a healthy 14-6 ATS in its last 20 games as a favorite, as previously mentioned, USC catching points has been a good bet since the start of last season.
