USC is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 road games. The over is 3-1-1 in USC’s last 5 games. UCLA is 6-0-1 ATS in their last 7 home games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games. The under is 13-5 in UCLA’s last 18 Saturday games. The home team is 10-4 ATS in these two teams last 14 head to head meetings.
These two teams come into this game tied for second place in the PAC-12 standings. USC is coming off of a brutal loss to Arizona, while UCLA has won two in a row. USC has won a lot of games by 1-2 possessions and could easily have a few more losses than they do, but they have played very well in close games. I am taking the over in this game as I think we see a lot of points scored against some lazy defense in the regular season finale for these teams.
