NCAAB Betting: USC vs Cal

An all Golden State matchup presents itself for Sunday’s slate of college hoops as Southern California takes on Cal at Haas Pavilon. USC, which looked like a lock to make the NCAA Tournament a month ago, are feeling the heat now thanks to losses in four of its last five games.

Shark Bites
  • The Trojans are 12-3-1 ATS in the last 16 meetings
  • The underdog is 5-0-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings

It won’t get any easier today due to the Golden Bears’ penchant for coming through at home. Cal is 17-0 SU at Berkeley this season. The Bears are cashing tickets at a rapid pace as of late, going 6-0 ATS in their last six heading into this one.
