Pac-12 basketball sees the UCLA Bruins on the road to take on the USC Trojans on Saturday, February 12th.
The tip-off is set for 10:00 ET from Galen Center.
The Bruins started off as a 2 point favorite and that number has really not changed. The total has gone from 136 to 136.5.
UCLA has played quite well this season. For most of the year, they have looked like one of the better teams in college basketball.
The Bruins took care of the Stanford Cardinal on Tuesday by a score of 79-70. The task will be a lot taller for them on Saturday when they face off with this Trojans squad.
The one loss that really stands out to me is the one over the Arizona State Sun Devils. I get that teams have off days, but you cannot lose to a team that has been horrible the entire season.
In the win over the Cardinal, Johnny Juzang was the leading scorer for them with 23 points and 5 rebounds. This is a guy who is a huge reason why his team has had the success they have had and I do not see him slowing down anytime soon.
USC has also had a very good season so far. I have been quite impressed with the way they have played.
Right now, the Trojans have a record of 20-4. Getting win number 21 will certainly be no walk in the park, but it is something they can accomplish if they are on their game.
This crew beat the Pacific Tigers on Tuesday by a score of 74-68. It was certainly closer than they would have like against a team that is not very good, but the most important thing is that they got the win.
Southern California played much more sharper in the second half of their last win. They seemed to be going through the motions in the first half, but they really picked up the pace and intensity after the break, which is what propelled them to victory.
CBB Betting Trends:

Free UCLA Bruins vs. USC Trojans NCAAB Summary:
When you think of very good matchups in college hoops, this is certainly one that comes to mind. This has the chance to one really good ball game.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: USC ATS
When I think of the best teams in the Pac-12, it still starts with UCLA and Arizona, but that could change if the Trojans got this win. If they were able to do that, then I think a lot of people would respect them even more than they do now.
The Bruins are the better ball club here, but I am not convinced this is going to be easy for them. Going on the road to face a tough Trojans team is never easy to do.
Yes, it is a small number, but I do not love UCLA laying it here. It is going to be hard for them to win this game in the first place.
Give me USC getting the points at home here.
