USC now -6.5 over Utah as line jumps
If bettors were confused by the opening line for tonight's Utah-USC game, then they're really going to be shocked by the latest line movement.
After opening as a 3-point home favorite earlier this week, the Trojans are now -6.5 versus the Utes for tonight's 7:30PM ET kickoff. The total also moved, dropping from 59 down to 58 according to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI.
Utah is the highest-ranked FBS team to be an underdog against an unranked opponent in the last 20 years according to the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook. The Utes enter play tonight with a perfect 6-0 record and are 4-2 against the spread, while USC is 3-3 straight up and 3-3 at the betting window.
The home team is 4-0 against the spread in the last four meetings between these two teams.
