USC Trojans vs Washington Huskies prediction

No matter what you think of the Washington Huskies, backing the USC Trojans isn't an option for me. USC has piled up the loses all year, is 2-9 SU on the road and is 13-15 ATS despite being underdogs in most games. I have little confidence in USC putting together respectable showings from night to night. The Washington Huskies are 10-5 SU at home and this is an ideal spot to get a rare win over USC. Washington hasn't beat USC since January 2020. If not now, when? The line is more than reasonable. Give me the Washington Huskies and the reasonable number.
