The USC Trojans and California Golden Bears face off on Saturday in a Pac-12 college football showdown at California Memorial Stadium. These two teams were supposed to play earlier in the season, but it was canceled because of COVID. 

The USC Trojans come into this game with a 4-7 record and they have gone 4-7 against the spread. USC has really struggled as of late losing three games in a row. In the last game against BYU they were competitive, but they still lost by four points. USC is averaging 30 points while their defense is giving up 32.5 points per game. Under Center for USC has been Jaxson Dart and in the last game, he threw for 248 yards and a touchdown. In this game, if USC wants to come away with a victory they are going to need the offense to be better.

On the other side of this matchup is the California Golden Bears who sit with a 4-7 record and they have gone 6-5 against the spread. In the last game against UCLA the offense only scored 14 points and that led to the defeat. Quarterback Chase Garbers has thrown 125 yards, zero touchdowns, and two interceptions. Cal is averaging 23.7 points while their defense is giving up 23 points per game. On the season, Garbers has thrown for 2,354 yards, 16 touchdowns, and eight interceptions. Running back Christopher Brooks has rushed for 558 yards and two touchdowns.

USC is 4-1 against the spread in their last five games on fieldturf. USC is 1-5 against the spread in their last six games overall. Cal is 4-1 against the spread in their last five games overall. The under is 13-3 in the last 16 meetings. USC is 7-1 against the spread in their last eight meetings in California. 

When these two teams face off the under has been a strong play and it’s going to be the case again in this game. I expect especially Cal is going to struggle to score and that is going to lead to a lower-scoring game. Back the under to cash.
