Why Bet on USC?

The USC Trojans are a really good offensive team. The Trojans scored 42 in their first meeting against the Cardinal. The Trojans are led by quarterback Sam Darnold and running back Ronald Jones III. Darnold tossed the football for more than 3,400 yards this season, with 24 of them going for touchdowns.

Jones was one of the too running backs in the country. The running back finished 54 yards shy of 1,400 on the season with 16 touchdowns. The Trojans top receiver Deontay Burnett needs just 34 years to get to 1,000 on the season, with 9 touchdowns.

Why Bet on Stanford?

The Stanford Cardinal lost Christian McCaffrey from last years team. They picked right up at the running back position with Bryce Love this season. Love led the team with more than 1,800 rushing yards and 16 touchdowns. Love needs 153 yards in this game on the ground to go over 2,000.

Stanford is no favorite at the NCAAF Betting Odds for Pac-12 Championship Game.

K.J. Costello was the quarterback all season for the Cardinal. He passed for 1,169 yards and 9 touchdowns on the season. Stanford’s other two losses this season came to the San Diego State Aztecs and the Washington State Cougars.

Trojans Offense Wins

The USC Trojans offense is going to win this game. The first time these two teams met, Stanford could not stop them at all. Look for a better defensive game plan in this game out of Stanford, but when push comes to shove – the Cardinal are going be unable to keep up.

Bet on the USC Trojans over the Stanford Cardinal. Look for Sam Darnold to play his final Pac-12 game with a solid performance, as he looks to impress the NFL scouts. USC will have a game plan for Bryce Love, and lead to a win for the Trojans. The final bet here is the USC Trojans -3 over the Stanford Cardinal.
