USC Trojans Betting Trends

The Trojans are now 7-3 against the spread in their last 10 games after failing to cover last week in a victory over the Texas Longhorns. USC is also 3-7 against the number in its last 10 road games, is 1-4 against the spread in its last five games in September, and 2-6 ATS in its last eight games after accumulating more than 450 total yards in its previous game.

Cal Golden Bears Betting Trends

Despite covering the spread last Saturday night versus Ole Miss, the Golden Bears are still just 1-5 against the number in their last six games versus a team with a winning record. They're also winless at 0-4 against the number in their last four games coming off a successful cover in their previous contest.

OUR PREDICTION: The under is 11-2 in the last 13 meetings between these two teams and 5-1 in the last six meetings when Cal is the host team. The under is also 7-1 in the Golden Bears' last eight games after allowing less than 100 yards rushing in their previous game. On the other side, the under is 12-5 in the Trojans' last 17 road games and 21-8-1 in their last 30 conference games. Despite the firepower offensively on both sides, I like the under on Saturday afternoon in Berkeley.
