Arizona Wildcats at USC Trojans Betting Pick

In Pac-12 college football, the Arizona Wildcats are slated to embark on a challenging road trip, locking horns with the formidable USC Trojans this coming Saturday.

As the Arizona Wildcats enter this matchup, their season record stands at three wins and two losses, with their most recent encounter being a grueling home defeat against the Washington Huskies.

Conversely, the USC Trojans have been in stellar form, perched at the 9th spot in the latest Associated Press poll, having secured five consecutive victories in their 5-0 season run, culminating in a road triumph against the Colorado Buffaloes.

To add historical context, it was less than a year ago that these two teams last clashed, with the Trojans prevailing over the Wildcats with a scoreline of 45-37.

Notably, the USC Trojans are entering this contest as heavy favorites, boasting a -22 point spread, while the over/under stands at 72.5 points, setting the stage for a riveting Saturday night showdown.

Williams + Riley = Deadly Combination

At the heart of the USC Trojans’ offensive juggernaut lies the potent partnership of Lincoln Riley and Caleb Williams. This combination has emerged as arguably the most lethal force in college football.

Throughout this season, the Trojans have consistently posted at least 42 points in every game, with their overall season average currently standing at a remarkable 53.6 points per game. The Trojans’ aerial attack, spearheaded by quarterback Caleb Williams, has been a sight to behold, amassing an impressive 382.4 passing yards per game.

While Williams did experience his first interception in the recent victory against Colorado, he more than compensates with an astonishing tally of 21 touchdown passes, firmly establishing himself as a Heisman Trophy contender.

Tahj Washington shines as the leading receiver in the Trojans’ ranks. However, their receiving corps boasts a multitude of talents, making it a challenge to discern who will have the standout performance on any given day.

Marshawn Lloyd carries the torch for USC in the ground game, accumulating 52 carries, 433 rushing yards, and three touchdowns. The Trojans face a road clash against Notre Dame next week before returning home to host Utah on October 21st.

Arizona Looking to Shock the World

Without a doubt, a victory for the Arizona Wildcats on the road in this encounter would stand as the most significant upset witnessed in the college football season thus far.

The Wildcats’ first setback occurred on the road against Mississippi State, and their recent loss to Washington was marred by Michael Penix Jr.’s surgical dissection of the Wildcats’ defense. Penix and Caleb Williams from USC have emerged as front-runners in the Heisman Trophy race.

Regarding leadership, the Arizona Wildcats are guided by Jayden de Laura, their signal-caller who has notched up nine touchdown passes in the season thus far, with five of them finding their mark in the capable hands of Tetairoa McMillan.

The Wildcats‘ passing attack has consistently churned out 273.6 yards per game. On the scoring front, Arizona averages 26.4 points per game while permitting their opponents an average of 19 points. The upcoming schedule reveals back-to-back road games for the Wildcats, with their next matchup pitting them against the unbeaten Washington State Cougars.

Lincoln Riley, aware that allowing opponents to stay in games is a recipe for instability in the long term, is unlikely to let the Arizona Wildcats linger within striking distance in this contest.

Caleb Williams, harboring aspirations of etching his name into college football history, specifically with a Heisman Trophy, is poised for a monumental performance against Arizona’s defense. Anticipate the USC Trojans to rack up impressive statistics in the coming weeks.


In conclusion, the prevailing sentiment is a resounding vote of confidence for the home team, with expectations of a commanding victory. Thus, the prediction is a decisive win for USC with a score of 58-27, the Trojans triumphing over the Wildcats.
