NCAA College Football Picks: Ohio State at USC

September 9, 2008

Two top five NCAA Football teams collide this weekend when the No. 5-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes visit the No. 1 USC Trojans at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on On Saturday night (8 pm ET, ABC).

The Trojans are a 10-point favorite at Sportingbet.com, a recommended sports betting website.

Ohio State (2-0 SU, 0-1 ATS) beat state-rival Ohio Bobcats 26-14 last week, failing to cover the 34.5-point spread. The score went under the total of 47.

The unimpressive win over the unranked Bobcats dropped Ohio State from third to fifth in the polls.

SoCal (1-0 SU, 1-0 ATS) had a bye last week. In Week 1, the Trojans hammered Virginia 52-7, easily covering the 20.5-point spread.

On the injury front, Buckeyes’ running back Chris Wells (right foot), safety Jamario O’Neal (served two-game suspension) and defensive back Donald Washington (served two-game suspension) are all listed as probable for Saturday’s game. Guard Kyle Mitchum (sprained left foot) is out indefinitely.

For the Trojans, linebacker Luthur Brown (sore back) is probable for Saturday’s game, while wide receiver Vidal Hazelton (ankle) and linebacker Michael Morgan (shoulder) are both questionable. Linebacker Chris Galippo (back) is expected to miss the game, and center Michael Reardon (right hip) is out indefinitely.

Pick: USC
