Duck Stepping In

The Oregon Ducks were not the first team scheduled to play in the Pac-12 Championship. USC was originally slated to play against the Washington Huskies. An outbreak of COVID-19 among the Huskies has changed all of that. The Huskies do not have the players available to play in the championship game. That leaves the door open for the Ducks to repeat as conference champions.

Money Moving In

The money being bet on this game is firmly on the side of the USC Trojans. USC is getting over 70 percent of the money from college football bettors. Although Oregon is not getting much of the betting action, the spread is barely moving. The Trojans started out as 3 point favorites and only a few outlets have moved the line to 3.5

What to Watch For

The Ducks will look to attack USC in the middle of the defense. If the Trojans defense has a weakness it is at linebacker. Oregon QB Tyler Shough will look to exploit the middle and move the offense.  In the last outing, the Trojans allowed more than 280 passing yards and they are 4-10 ATS after allowing that many yards in a game.

Both of these teams have played very close games which means taking the points may be the way to go. The last three Oregon games were decided by four points or fewer.

The Ducks defense has been successful at slowing down the Air Raid that the Trojans implement. The secret is getting to the quarterback. If the Ducks fail to pressure Kedon Slovis will attack the Ducks defense with a slew of talented wide receivers.

USC vs Oregon Picks and Predictions

The Ducks have the advantage of playing in this game bringing experience to the big game. The Ducks are 5-2 ATS in the last seven games against the Trojans. Oregon is 4-0 ATS against a team with a winning record and will surprise USC and emerge as Pac-12 Champions!
