4* Utah vs. USC NCAA Betting Final Analysis:
In this matchup, USC comes into the game as the 3-point favorite on the spread. When looking back at past head-to-head matchups, the underdog has covered in every game of the past 4 seasons. However, I see the Trojans having a good enough squad to not only win but cover. For this game, I like USC to cover at -3.
