The USC Trojans and the Stanford Cardinal will meet up on the college basketball circuit Wednesday.

USC enters this one with a 13-11 mark on the year. The Trojans have lost three of their last four games, dropping to Washington, Utah and Colorado with a win over Washington State in that stretch.

In the loss to the Buffaloes, USC’s Bennie Boatwright led the way on 24 points, five rebounds and four assists. The only other Trojans player to finish in double-figures there was Shaqquan Aaron, with 13 points.

Over on the Stanford side, they’re 12-11 this season. Following three straight wins over Colorado, California and Oregon State, Stanford fell in their last game versus Oregon on Sunday.

In the loss to the Ducks, Stanford’s Bryce Wills was the team’s top scorer on 13 points and three rebounds. Kezie Okpala added 10 points for the Cardinal, and Josh Sharma logged 10 rebounds with eight points.

USC is 15-7 ATS in their last 22 Wednesday games and 1-5 ATS in their last six road games. The under is 6-1 in the Trojans’ last seven overall and the over is 4-1 in their last five road games.

Meanwhile, the Cardinal are 4-0 ATS in their last four after an ATS loss and 6-2 ATS in their last eight Wednesday games. Stanford is 15-5 ATS in their last 20 home games and the under is 5-1 in their last six overall.

USC has managed to eclipse 70 points just once over their last five games, which is weird because they do have a handful of decent scorers on the roster.

As for Stanford, they hit the wall against Oregon (just 46 points), but in a home outing here against a sketchy team I like them to manage a win. I’m going with the Cardinal in this one.
