The Stanford Cardinal and USC Trojans face off on Wednesday in a college basketball showdown at the Galen Center. 

The Stanford Cardinal come into this game with a 14-11 record overall but they have lost three games in a row. In the last game against Oregon State their offense could only manage 62 points and that led to the 11 point defeat. Stanford is averaging 71.3 points while their defense is giving up 69 points per game. Stanford is shooting 47.7 percent from the field and 32.6 percent from behind the three point line. Oscar Da Silva has been the best player for Stanford averaging 18.8 points while shooting 58 percent from the field and 30.2 percent from behind the three point line. 

On the other side of this matchup is the USC Trojans who sit with a 19-6 record overall and coming into this game they have lost two games in a row. After losing two games ago against Colorado they couldn’t turn it around in the last game against Utah, a game they lost by ten points.

USC is 7-2 against the spread in their last nine games as a favorite. USC is 7-3 against the spread in their last ten games overall. The home team is 6-2 against the spread in the last eight meetings played between the two teams. 

I don’t trust USC to cover this big of a number and Stanford is going to find success in this game. I don’t think USC will come away with a win, but they are going to do enough to cover the spread. Back Stanford against the spread.
