USC vs. Utah 2022 Expert Betting Predictions

The Trojans have gotten better with every game. The Trojans played one of their best contests last Saturday in a terrific 30-14 win over Washington State. But as good as USC has looked, they have yet to take on a team as talented as the Utah Utes.

The Utes couldn’t keep up with a UCLA team in their second loss of the season. The game happened in Pasadena. This happens at Rice-Eccles Stadium where Utah is close to unbeatable straight up or against the spread. Utah should return to their winning ways.

USC is a hot commodity in the future books. On Saturday, Trojans fans and backers get a taste of reality. Utah covers the spread on their way to handing USC the Trojans’ first lost of the season.
