College football has a very attractive matchup ahead with USC vs UCLA, two teams that are good cheerleaders in the attractive NCAA.

The bets between USC and UCLA have rarely been higher in the last three decades. The Trojans remain in the hunt for the Pac-12 championship and a spot in the College Football Playoffs, while the Bruins need a win to keep their conference title hopes intact. The crosstown rivals will square off Saturday night at the Rose Bowl.

With that tension, a conundrum presents itself: is No. 7 USC a legitimate playoff threat or just a good team but one that has benefited from a very favorable schedule? And also: is 16th-ranked UCLA poised to break through under Chip Kelly and realize the program’s potential, or will it flounder on the big stage as it has for most of the past two decades?

Without further ado, JefeBet offers you the best information for the American college league, with predictions, odds and team analysis for this USC Trojans vs UCLA Bruins match.

Betting on the USC Trojans

  • Regular Season Record: 9-1
  • Spread: -2.5
  • Moneyline: -137
  • Over/Under: 76 Points

You can’t talk about this game without first looking at the offenses. Both USC (9-1, 7-1 Pac-12) and UCLA (8-2, 5-1) are simply elite on that side of the ball. The Trojans (42.4 points per game) and Bruins (39.5 points per game) rank third and 11th, respectively, in the nation in scoring. In yards per play: USC is tied for fourth (7.20) and UCLA is sixth (7.16).

USC suffered a major loss last week with the injury to running back Travis Dye, which ended his season against Colorado. Dye rushed for 884 yards in 10 games and was by far the Trojans’ most consistent runner. He could cause problems for defenses as a receiver out of the backfield and was excellent in pass protection.

Betting on the UCLA Bruins

  • Regular Season Record: 8-2
  • Spread: +2.5
  • Moneyline: +112
  • Over/Under: 76 Points

UCLA has the league’s top running back in Zach Charbonnet, who has rushed for a league-high 1,145 yards with 13 touchdowns while averaging 7.5 yards per carry. He is a stout, physically imposing runner, but can also make plays in the passing game (29 receptions for 270 yards).

He doesn’t have the talent of the receivers USC has, but Duke’s Jake Bobo (43 receptions, 651 yards and six TDs) is a stout receiver who is having a solid season and can pose problems.
