Utah vs USC PAC12 Football Betting Preview

No. 13 USC hosts No. 23 Utah at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The Utes have quarterback Troy Williams who led Utah to nine wins last season, including a 31-27 victory against visiting USC. However, he lost the starting quarterback job this season to sophomore Tyler Huntley. Tyler hasn’t played since suffering a shoulder injury against Arizona on Sept. 22 and Williams was back in the starting lineup last weekend against Stanford. The bad news is that he was intercepted twice late in the game to spoil a comeback. This week Kyle Whittingham hasn’t committed to a starter against the Trojans. USC has also injuries, particularly at wide receiver and the offensive line, But, the two best offensive weapons quarterback Sam Darnold and running back Ronald Jones II are healthy.

Utah Utes (4-1, 1-1 Pac-12) have a play maker on defense in linebacker Sunia Tauteoli, who recorded 11 tackles in last week’s loss to Stanford, including 3 1/2 for losses. He’s big, fast and athletic. The USC Trojans (5-1, 3-1) leading receiver Deontay Burnett is among the injured with a toe injury,Second-leading receiver Stephen Mitchell Jr. returned Saturday after missing two games with a groin injury., Jalen Greene has remained sidelined the past two games with a concussion,

Utah vs USC College Football
Betting Prediction 10-14-17

USC came into the season with a lot of hype on a national championship and a possible Heisman Trophy for Sam Darnold. Looks like neither will happen. Once a again Utah comes in under the radar of most gamblers. They are a touch team that has the defensive line to disrupt most teams. The injuries to the USC offensive line will be a key here as I expect the Utah defensive line to be able to control the line of scrimmage and keep the USC passing game in check. The 13 points are just too much and I will be on Utah as long as I can get 10+ points.
Key Trend: Utah is 5-0 ATS in its last 5 games on the road

Betting Pick: Utah +13
Score Prediction: USC 24 – Utah 20
