USC at California Preview & Picks

USC are tipped to cover as they get back to winning ways.

Caleb Williams and the Trojans offense is likely to feast on a California defense that has been gashed by ranked teams this season.

  • 4 of USC’s 6 wins have been by at least 12 points
  • California are 0-5-0 ATS in their last 5 games
  • The Over has cashed in 6 of USC’s 7 games this season
  • The Over has hit in 9 of California’s last 12 games

Head To Head

  • USC lead the all-time series 71-27-4
  • USC won 41-35 when these two teams last met in November 2022

USC Form

USC head back out on the road looking to rebound after back-to-back losses dropped them to 6-2.

The Trojans opened the season with a run of three blowout wins at home, beating San Jose State 56-28, Nevada 66-14 and Stanford 56-10.

They then went out on the road to beat Arizona State 42-29 before fending off Deion Sanders’ Colorado team, 48-14.

USC’s return home saw them squeeze past Arizona, 43-41, but their season has come of the rails in recent weeks with defeats to two ranked teams.

The Trojans were beaten 48-20 at #21 Notre Dame, and then suffered a 34-32 home defeat at the hands of #14 Utah.

California Form

California enter this matchup on the back of a couple of losses to tanked teams that have left them 3-4.

The Golden Bears opened up with a 58-21 win at North Texas, but struggled for consistency as they then lost their home opener 14-10 to Auburn.

They then beat Idaho 31-17 at home, but a meeting with #8 Washington immediately returned them to losing ways as they were beaten 59-32 on the road.

California bounced back to beat Arizona State 24-21 at home, but since then they have not won a game.

The Golden Bears were beaten 52-40 at home by #15 Oregon State, before heading out on the road to lose 34-14 at #16 Utah.

Verdict

USC have had a rough couple of weeks, but this is a good opportunity for them to bounce back.

California’s defense have given up a bunch of points against ranked teams this season, so the Tojans are likely to pile up the points as they pull away to win.
