USC vs. Utah Predictions

In order to make accurate USC vs. Utah predictions, our sports betting model has sorted through thousands of historical college football games to find similar matchups. We can then draw comparisons and find value based on this analysis. 

The model found that the total is lower than 100% of the 12 most historically similar matchups. That warrants a play on Over 67 total points. 

In fact, these two teams met earlier this season (Oct. 15), and Utah won that game by a score of 43-42. We all know USC loves to score points in bunches, as the Trojans have gone over the total in six straight games.

Utah’s defense is solid, but the Utes have given up plenty of points when they step up in competition. Utah allowed 42 points against UCLA and USC as well as 29 points at Florida. In the end, USC’s offense should be able to dictate this game, and Utah will be forced into another high-scoring affair similar to the first meeting.
