Despite numerous key injuries and having to break in a freshman quarterback USC is not dead yet. Head coach Clay Helton has been supposedly “fired” several times this season. Yet Helton is engineering what may end up as a remarkable season. USC is tied with Utah for the Pac 12 South Division lead. And the Trojans own the tiebreaker with their win over the Utes earlier this season. However, a tough challenge for college football betting games looms on Saturday. North Division-leading Oregon will visit Memorial Coliseum. The Ducks are vastly improved and bring defense.

Oregon Ducks vs. USC Trojans College Football Betting Games Picks
In this situation, we have an Oregon team that is more coherent and complementary between offense and defense. USC has gone from a power top passing team. The transition has not been a flop. But, it has not brought reliable consistency for College Football Betting Games. Oregon is not nearly as one dimensional. Indeed the Ducks bring a superior complete game style.
