USC QB Competition Heats Up College Football Gambling

College football gambling on the USC Trojans will be as popular as ever, regardless of who is at quarterback.

Right now that question is unanswered as Aaron Corp and Matt Barkley are battling for the job.  The Trojans are almost always a popular college football bet at the sports book and that is not likely to change.

College football gambling tells us that Corp is expected to return to practice next week.  He has been dealing with a knee injury and it has cost him time in practice and it could cost him the starting quarterback job.  It was expected that Corp would be the starter this college football gambling season but Barkley has impressed everyone during camp and moved ahead of Mitch Mustain.  Corp was expected to be the starter this season but he was hurt in the second practice of camp. He is just now getting back into action. "It just feels like I have more range of motion," Corp said, "It’s not restricting me at all. It keeps getting a little better each day. Today is the best it’s ever felt."

College football gambling sees that Barkley has been running the first team offense in Corp’s absence and the freshman has looked very good. "It’s definitely a competition, no doubt," Barkley said. "I don’t know what the situation is right now, who’s ahead of who. I feel like we’re all putting forward a strong case."  Head coach Pete Carroll has said that Corp still has time to win the job and be ready for the season opener against San Jose State on Sept. 5. "This has been a great opportunity for Matt to be in charge and get some experience with that," Carroll said. "I’m just going to wait and see where it goes. I don’t have a plan for this thing."

What has become clear is that Mustain is not likely to be part of the picture as the starter as college football bet numbers tell us.  Corp played briefly in five games for USC last season as college football bet numbers indicate while Mustain played briefly in eight games.

USC also had some other injury news in college football gambling.  Tight end Blake Ayles should be back at practice in a couple of days. Center Kristofer O’Dowd could be out for a few weeks after dislocating his right kneecap.  College football gambling tells us he is likely to be replaced in practice by Alex Parsons.  Last season Parsons started 10 games at right guard as college football bet sportsbook numbers show.  O’Dowd started every game for the Trojans last season as college football gambling statistics tell us.
