College Basketball Odds – Oregon Ducks at USC Trojans

One of the teams the Oregon Ducks have been very dominant against the recent years as the USC Trojans. In fact, Oregon has captured 13 straight games over the Trojans, but on Saturday night they will encounter a USC team is on hot streak at the moment, and Oregon is coming off a rather demoralizing defeat as they get ready to take the floor at 10:30 PM ET at the Galen Center in Los Angeles. BetAnySports customers get reduced juice, which gives them a better shot against college basketball odds, and then after the opening tip, stay very involved in the action when they take advantage of the state-of-the-art software provided by Live Betting Ultra.

One of the things you have to worry about your potential are in factor is that they looked like they had victory very much in hand at Pauley Pavilion the other night against UCLA, with a 19-point lead, but eventually lost 82-79. That put them back to second place in the Pac 12, more importantly it will slide them down in the rankings, in all likelihood. Oregon came into this week ranked #5 in the country by the Associated Press and sixth in the Coaches’ poll. While it is important to them? Because they are obviously seeking a #1 seed in the NCAA Tournament, and as things look at the moment, a #2 is probably the best they can hope for.
USC by coached  by Andy Enfield, who once guided obscure Florida Gulf Coast to the Sweet 16. He has managed get five straight victories out of his team, including a home win over UCLA, and he has got some of his size back, as Bennie Boatwright has returned to action. The 6-10 sophomore had 16 points as USC glided to a 92-66 victory over Oregon State on Thursday. He had missed 15 games with a knee injury.
In the college basketball odds that have been posted on this game by the people at BetAnySports, Oregon laying points on the road:
Oregon Ducks -3.5
USC Trojans  +3.5
 
Over 146.5 points -110
Under 146.5 points -110
When you talk about the Oregon offense, it is certainly characterized by some balance, as five players are averaging in double figures, but really, the focal point of the USC defense will be stopping Dillon Brooks, the talented 6-7 forward who is one of the absolute best players in the Pac 12. Brooks had some good long-range success against UCLA, hitting five out of his nine attempts beyond the three-point arc, and he leads the team in scoring. USC has to worry about other people who are productive, including the inside guy, Chris Boucher,the  6-10 center who not only averages 12.2 points and 5.8 rebounds, but is a premier shot blocker as well.
USC has its own big guy for Boucher to worry about. Chimizie Metu, the 6-11 brick wall, provides physical play and 7.5 rebounds per game, and is also the team’s leading scorer. But the Trojans also have some balance; Boatwright is averaging 13.3 points and the guys in the backcourt can hit threes. We’re talking about Jordan MacLachlan and Elijah Stewart, who are at 41% and 40% from downtown, respectively
These teams met on December 30, and Oregon romped by an 84-61 score. USC had no success it all inside the arc, hitting just 11 of 40 two-point attempts. So obviously the revenge angle is very much in place and Oregon has to turn right around and get over that lost the UCLA. This could be a difficult spot for them.
