Betting Trends since 2018:
USC is 6-7 ATS in conference games.
USC is 3-6 ATS in away games.
The over is 3-6 when USC is a road team.
Colorado is 4-9 ATS in conference games.
Colorado is 3-6 ATS as a home team.
The under is 7-4 when Colorado is an underdog.
Neither team has been very good ATS over the last year and a half. I myself will not bet this game, however it seems the under would be a logical play here. The over is 3-6 when USC is a road team since 2018 and the under has been profitable when Colorado is a home team since 2018. The Buffaloes have also scored a total of 13 points in the last two weeks. Take the under in this game. Final score prediction, USC wins and the total goes under 38-17.
