The USC Trojans and the Colorado Buffaloes meet in college basketball action from the CU Events Center on Thursday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Colorado is listed as a 2.5-point home favorite with a total set at 140.5 points.
For USC, Joshua Morgan is out indefinitely with an ankle injury while J’Vonne Hadley is out for the season with a hand injury.
USC’s 68-61 win over Colorado back on January 12th, 2023, made it back-to-back wins for USC in this head-to-head matchup.
USC is 11-5 ATS in their last 16 games overall and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following an ATS win while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 road games. Colorado is 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 games overall and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games following an ATS win while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall.
I’m backing USC here. Both teams need the win for their tournament resumes, and you could argue Colorado needs this game more being on the outside looking in. However, USC is one of the last four in according to a lot of bracketology listings, and a sluggish performance could burst their bubble down the stretch. I think you see a concerted effort here and I think USC has a good shot at winning this game. Give me the Trojans and the points.
