Washington bounces back from loss

Washington is coming off a 45-19 win at BYU last weekend to improve to 3-1 on the season. The Huskies are 0-1 in the Pac-12 with a loss to Cal two weeks ago. They are 3-1 against the spread and 3-1 with the over.

The Huskies have been an impressive defensive team, allowing 18.3 points and 332 yards per contest. Offensively, Washington puts up 40.8 points and 461.3 yards per game. Quarterback Jacob Eason threw for 1,063 yards and 10 touchdowns to lead the team while three different receivers have over 220 yards. On the ground, three different Huskies have over 200 yards rushing. Richard Newton has 242 yards and five rushing touchdowns. Myles Bryant has been leading the defense with 24 tackles and two interceptions.

USC stuns Utah at home

USC is coming off a big upset win at home over Utah, 30-23. The Trojans improve to 3-1 on the year with the win, as well as 2-0 in the Pac-12. USC is 2-2 against the spread and 2-2 with the over/under total.

The Trojans are putting up 33.3 points and 443 yards per game on offense this season, but have been dealing with QB injuries. J.T. Daniels suffered a season-ending injury in the season opener, putting Kedon Slovis in. He threw for 732 yards and five touchdowns before suffering a concussion early in last week’s game. Matt Fink filled in and has thrown for 351 yards and three touchdowns in limited action. Slovis is listed as out for today’s game, leaving USC down to its third-string QB in Fink. Defensively, USC is allowing 24 points and 421 yards per contest. Michael Pittman Jr. is the team’s leading receiver with 31 catches for 437 yards and three touchdowns. Vavae Malepeai is the leading rusher with 311 yards and four touchdowns.

College Football Betting Trends

Washington

The Huskies are just 2-8 ATS in their last 10 conference games, but 6-2 ATS in their last eight games after scoring more than 40 points in their previous game.

USC

USC is 3-10-1 against the spread in their last 14 road games and 19-39-1 ATS in their last 59 games following a win.

Prediction:

Washington has covered in four of the last six meetings with USC. The Huskies come into this game healthy while USC is down to a third QB. The Trojans were not impressive on the road in an OT loss to BYU two weeks ago and I would expect more of the same today. Washington has a defense that will give Fink a lot of problems. The Washington offense also should be able to move the ball behind its passing game against this shaky USC defense. I like the Huskies to roll to a big win.
