USC Football takes on a 4-1 Washington State team that would have been 5-0 if they didn't blow a big lead to No. 12 Oregon in Week 4. It could potentially be a tough game, even at home. Especially because there's the possibility that SC ends up 'looking ahead' to their Pac-12 behemoths showdown against Utah in Week 7.
That being said, the Trojans have quite the team themselves. They're ranked No. 6 in the country for a reason, and have an undefeated 5-0 record. It's why they're the favorites for the contest. In fact, they're the favorites by quite a bit, according to the WynnBET sports book.
USC Football vs. WSU Odds Week 6
USC Football is favored by 13.5 points (all bets in article are as of WynnBET) in their upcoming contest against Washington State. It's -110 to take either USC -13.5 or WSU +13.5. That may surprise some people, as while USC's offense is one of the best in the country (scoring 42.2 points per game), Washington State has played well on defense this year (18.2 points allowed per game).
USC Football vs. WSU Prediction Week 6
It would still be wise to bet that USC Football will cover the spread, however, because SC is going up against an offense that likes to turn the ball over. WSU has turned the ball over 12(!) times this season, which is tied for the seventh-most turnovers in the country. SC's defense has forced 15 turnovers this year, which is tied for first in the country.
They're going to get collect their takeaways, and set the offense up with more drives and shorter fields. Therefore, that Cougar defense is going to have it tougher than they typically do when they play an already-elite offense in USC. Washington State is not a bad team, but they face a bad matchup when going down to L.A. this weekend.
