USC opens as a one-score betting favorite over UCLA in Week 12
USC is the betting favorite to take home the Victory Bell in Week 12.
The Trojans are 6-point favorites at home over UCLA, according to early odds from Circa Sports. The over/under was set at 65.5. USC is 4-2 at home this season, so it’s not surprising that it’s the favorite at L.A. Memorial Coliseum.

USC sits at 7-4 after losing to Oregon 36-27. The Trojans head back home to face UCLA in a cross-town rivalry game to close out the regular season. The season hasn’t gone how USC wanted, but a win over a hated rival could make things better.
Much like USC, UCLA has also struggled as of late. The Bruins are on a 2-game losing streak after dropping a game to Arizona State on Saturday.
UCLA played 2 quarterbacks in the 17-7 loss with Collin Schlee and Chase Griffin seeing time. To say that there’s uncertainty at QB for the Bruins is an understatement.
USC won last season’s meeting with UCLA 48-45 in a close, high-scoring affair. The Trojans led the all-time series 50-33 with the Bruins.
Both teams have already clinched a bowl berth and have been eliminated from the Pac-12 title conversation; this will be for bragging rights.
Kickoff is set for 12:30 p.m. PT on ABC.
