Isaiah Mobley is averaging 14.4 points and 3.4 assists, while Boogie Ellis is averaging 12.4 points and 2.7 assists.

Nothing would surprise me in this game, but it’s clear the USC Trojans are the better team by a decent margin. The Oregon State Beavers have not only won a game in two months, but they’re losing their last five games by an average of 14.6 points. Oregon State is also 3-10 against the spread at home and 6-18-1 against the spread on the season. There’s no backing Oregon State. Give me USC.
