What an Awful Season for USC?

Has there been a bigger disappointment this season in all of college basketball than USC. in the last game against Arizona, USC scored only 67 points and they ended up losing by 15 points. DJ Rodman had a strong game putting up 16 points and seven rebounds. USC on the season is averaging 76.2 points while their defense is giving up 74.8 points per game. The defense is ranked 266th, and the defense is going to need to be better here. Boogie Ellis is averaging 18.7 points while shooting 46.1 percent from the field and 45.5 percent from behind the three point line. 

Arizona State Has Lost Two Games in a Row

Arizona State is really struggling heading into this game and they have lost two games in a row. Two games ago against Washington, they lost 82-67 and in the last game against UCLA, they were defeated 68-66. Adam Miller and Frankie Collins both scored 16 points. Arizona State on the season is averaging 69.1 points while their defense is giving up 70.6 points per game. The offense is ranked 300th in the league and they are going to need to find a way to get the offense going here. Frankie Collins is averaging 13.8 points while shooting 44.9 percent from the field and 33.3 percent from behind the three-point line. 

USC vs Arizona State Betting Prediction

USC is coming off another loss in the last game and at this point, I don’t really trust them. Arizona State is averaging 69.1 points and they are going to have no issue running up the score here against the USC defense. Arizona State’s offense is going to have no issue running up the score and that is going to be the difference as the Sun Devils are going to get the job done. Back Arizona State against the spread.
