College Football Betting – USC Trojans (10-1) at UCLA Bruins (4-7)

College football betting on Saturday includes an ABC television game between #5 USC and UCLA.

It's the 78th game between these long-time rivals.  Gamblers making a college football bet will probably look to USC since a win by the Trojans would give them a trip to the Rose Bowl.

College football betting odds have the Trojans heavily favored in this matchup.  USC will be on alert though since they were upset in 2006 by the Bruins, costing them a spot in the BCS Championship game. This is the 90th straight game that USC has been in the AP Top 25 according to college football betting numbers. USC has excellent numbers on both sides of the ball this season according to college football betting stats.  The Trojans scoring defense average (7.8) is the best it has been in 56 years according to college football betting stats. USC has only given up 10 touchdowns all season.  On the other side of the ball quarterback Mark Sanchez leads the conference in passing efficiency and total offense. 

UCLA has struggled for the most part this season but they do have a defense that is second in the country against the pass.  The problem with that college football betting number is that UCLA can’t stop the run.

The college football betting numbers actually favor UCLA in this game. The Trojans are 2-5 against the college football odds in their last 7 games in December while the Bruins are 4-1 against the college football betting odds in their last 5 games in December. The Bruins are 20-7 against the college football betting pointspread in their last 27 home games. The Bruins are 15-6 against the college football betting odds in their last 21 conference games. The Home team is 4-1 against the college football betting pointspread in the last 5 meetings between the two teams.

Looking at the college football bet total we see what could be an under. The Under is 21-6-1 in the Trojans last 28 conference games according to college football bet numbers. The Under is 9-1-1 in the Bruins last 11 conference games according to college football bet statistics. The Under is 8-2 in the Bruins last 10 home games. The Under is 7-3 in the Bruins last 10 games in December.
