UConn vs USC Pick: College Basketball Dec. 3rd
UConn vs USC Pick – College Basketball Dec 3rd: USC comes into Thursday night’s neutral court meeting with the UConn Huskies having gone under the total in 11 of their last 15 games, while the Huskies have gone under the total in 4 of their last 5 games on a neutral court.
Both of these teams have put up margin in their opening games of the 2020 season. UConn won their first two games of the season by an average of 19.5 points, while USC has won their opening three games by an average of 16 points per game. While both teams are undefeated, UConn is coming off an ATS loss to their state rival Hartford last Friday, but are well rested and ready to shake off whatever was ailing them last week.

UConn vs USC Pick:
Last season, both teams averaged over 70 points per game, with UConn edging USC out slightly by averaging 2 points per game more (72.8). Last year these two teams allowed very similar points against per game, with UConn allowing 67, and USC allowing 66. After 5 games in the books between these two teams, their defensive averages mirror the numbers they allowed last year.
Over the last 18 months, these two teams have averaged a full game total of about 138 points per game, and this total currently sits at 136.5. It seems as though this may be a good spot to jump on the Over, especially considering this game opened at 142.5, but has since dropped to where it is now at 136.5/137.
USC has gone under the betting total in 23 of their last 34 games, which is probably one of the factors that is driving the money to pour in on the Under in this one, but it still might not be low enough. While it’s never an ideal position to be jumping on the tail end of line movement, this might be an exception. Both teams have had relatively easy opponents so far to start the season, and the step-up in competition for both teams might bring the pace of this game to a crawl, especially with no crowd in attendance. Ride the steam and take the Under in UConn vs USC.
