Also, just a quick reminder for any of you that haven’t received our text or email about our Thursday Night 3-Unit Prop Bet then just text the word “prop” to 702-234-0597. This way I’ll be able to reply back directly to each text to give you this prop bet that I’m personally tripling down on.

USC vs Colorado Betting Preview: 

USC comes into this game sitting third in the PAC-12 at 14-2 overall, 4-2 in conference play, and 4-1 on the road so far this season.

Colorado is right on USC’s tail in that fourth spot currently at 12-4 overall, 4-2 in conference play and 9-1 at home this season.

USC is definitely going to be hungry to get a win after dropping two of their last three games including the 79-69 loss over the weekend to Oregon.

In that matchup, the Trojans shot just 42% from the field and 33% from 3-point land. Their defense let Oregon shot 50% from the field and 49% on 3-pointers, which is the perfect recipe for a double digit home loss.

USC will now have to travel to face this Colorado team who score an average of 75 points per game while playing at home, while giving up an average of only 65.6 points per game.

The Buffalos should be prepared and still have some of that momentum left after getting an 18 point bounce back road win on Saturday against Arizona State.

Colorado was able to hold the Sun Devils to just 34% from the field and 29% from 3-point land, so they’ll try to match that defensive effort in this one.

You can’t forget that this USC team has seven players that are 6-foot-9 or taller on their roster, but they’ll need to start using their size more towards their advantage in the paint if they want any change to get into those top 10 rankings soon.

The Trojans are just 2-6 against the spread in their last 8 games and 0-7 straight up in their last 7 games against the Buffaloes.

Colorado is 4-1 against the spread in their last 5 games against an opponent in the Pac-12 conference and the total has gone under in 7 of the Buffaloes last 9 games.
