Determine by FOX Sports activities actions betting analyst Geoff Schwartz:
Points could not worsen for Arizona State correct now. The Photo voltaic Devils’ head coach obtained fired two weeks up to now. Then they didn’t even look barely aggressive in opposition to a sturdy Utah squad ultimate weekend, dropping 34-13. Now they journey to Los Angeles to face a USC offense primed for a get-right recreation. USC will pour on the elements.
The Trojans have an explosive offensive assault. They’ve Heisman hopeful Caleb Williams at quarterback, Jordan Addison and Mario Williams at receiver and Travis Dye at working once more. They’re 18th in explosive play price, twelfth in dashing success price, they normally convert virtually 50% of their third-down options. Nonetheless, they did not play as a lot as expectations on Saturday night in opposition to Oregon State.
Caleb Williams was 15 of 36 for 160 yards and only one passing touchdown. Credit score rating Oregon State for its defensive method. The Beavers have in all probability essentially the most veteran secondary group throughout the conference, they normally carried out to their energy. They weren’t going to allow massive performs by the use of the air, nonetheless as a substitute, they conceded dashing numbers. USC had 101 dashing yards throughout the first quarter sooner than going away from the run until the fourth quarter. Arizona State does not have the safety or the endurance to purpose what the Beavers did on Saturday night.
Arizona State’s safety ranks eighty fifth in elements per drive, 112th in dashing success price and 122nd in passing success price. As you’d depend on, the Photo voltaic Devils don’t rush the passer correctly and don’t create the havoc performs needed to decelerate the Trojans. Sooner than the Oregon State recreation, USC had scored 11 touchdowns on 15 first-half drives, with two of the non-touchdown drives ending with the half.
I depend on to see that offensive effectivity return in opposition to a Photo voltaic Devils squad in search of to journey out the season until they uncover a brand new head coach.
I’ll take USC to cowl the first half sooner than the Trojans let their foot off the gasoline.
PICK: USC -14.5 1st half
