The Washington Huskies are capable of hanging around in this game, but they've been rough offensively this season and have had zero covering success dating back to last season. The USC Trojans have been head and shoulders the better team at both ends of the floor, and they've been much kinder to bettors. I have no choice but to lay the chalk with USC at home.
