The Dixie State Trailblazers and USC Trojans face off on Monday in a college basketball showdown at the Galen Center in Los Angeles. 

The Dixie State Trailblazers have struggled to start the season but they have played quite the tough schedule. The only win for Dixie State came against Southern Utah and they have losses against Gonzaga, Texas State, and CSUN. In the last game the defense gave up 79 points and that led to the loss. Dixie State is averaging 71 points while their defense is giving up 84,3 points per game. Forward Hunter Schofield has been the best player this season averaging 16 points while shooting 53.2 percent from the field and 30 percent from deep. 

On the other side of this matchup is the USC Trojans who have won three games in a row. And they have gone 2-1 against the spread. In the last game against Florida Gulf Coast, they won 78-61. USC is averaging 81 points per game while their defense is giving up 60.3 points per game. Boogie Ellis has been the best player for USC averaging 16.3 points while shooting 56.7 percent from the field and 45.5 percent from behind the three point line. Chevez Goodwin has also had a big season averaging 15.7 points while shooting 67.7 percent from the field.

Dixie State is 5-0 against the spread in their last five games against a team with a straight up winning record. Dixie State is 4-1 against the spread in their last five games following a straight up loss. The over is 4-1 in USC’s last 5 home games vs. a team with a road winning percentage of less than .400. The over is 4-1 in Dixie State’s last five road games.

I’m not sold on this USC team and Dixie State’s offense has been decent for the most part this season. Look for the visiting team to score plenty of points in this one and they will come away with the cover the spread. I do also expect this to be a higher scoring game and the over is going to cash.
