UCLA at USC - 11/20/21 College Football Picks and Prediction

Click Here for the Latest Odds

Two California programs will battle it out when the UCLA Bruins take on the USC Trojans. The Trojans have won five of the past nine in the matchup. UCLA comes in looking to end a two-game losing streak to the Trojans. Beating USC would guarantee the Bruins their first winning record in more than 6 years.

The Bruins find themselves ranked 31st in points and 49th in total yards at 429.5 per game. The UCLA Bruins are 4-3 in Pac 12 battles this year.

Last time out they grabbed a 44-20 win over Colorado which made the University of California Los Angeles program bowl eligible for the first time in four years.

The Trojans come in to this one allowing quarterback Jaxson Dart to get his first start. Dart was splitting time with Kedon Slovis this season but will take on QB1 responsibilities in this rival matchup. This change has the potential to put new life into the Trojans or set them back as the team has to adjust to a new leader. 

He has a 139.8 QBR on the season, and he's thrown for 759 yards, six touchdowns and three interceptions.

The Bruins are 6-0 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games. The favorite is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 meetings in this matchup.

The University of Southern California is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games on grass. The Trojans are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games after scoring less than 20 points in their previous game and are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall.

The Under is 4-0 in Trojans last 4 games following a bye week. The Under is also 10-4-1 in the last 15 meetings between these two PAC 12 programs.

Last year, the Trojans won this game thanks to a last minute touchdown pass. I don’t see history repeating itself as this is a stronger UCLA team that will be out for revenge in this year's contest and get the win. I would suggest grabbing this before the spread increases in UCLA’s favor.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
