The USC Trojans and Utah Utes will each try to extend their winning streaks to three when they meet in a Pac-12 matchup on Saturday at Rice-Eccles Stadium. The Trojans opened as small favorites and have failed to cover eight of their last nine games as road chalk. In fact, USC lost its last road game in that situation as a 17-point favorite at Boston College on September 13.
Meanwhile, the Utes have thrived as home underdogs, going 10-3 against the spread in their past 13 games under that scenario. However, they are just 2-5 ATS in their last seven home games against Pac-12 opponents while the Trojans are 4-1 vs. the line in their past five road meetings with conference foes.
