College Football Odds: USC vs. Ohio State point spread and odds

 The NFL season is in full force this week, but many of the bettors will focus on the college football game USC vs. Ohio State this Saturday, one of the most bet on sporting events this week at the sportsbooks. The No.3 USC Trojans will travel east to meet No.8 Ohio State this weekend and the anticipation for a big game is driving the bettors in throngs to the sportsbooks, making the odds and point spread on this college football game to swing madly. Will inexperienced USC quarterback Matt Barkley be able to deliver against the Buckeyes tomorrow or will Ohio State overcome the possible absence of DeVier Posey? Let's look at the odds and spread by the online sportsbooks to find answer to this question.

 Starting with the popular online sportsbook Bookmaker (official website), the odds are not looking good for the Buckeyes today. At the bookie USC is currently a big favorite to win this NCAAF battle with -290 odds on a victory (meaning people need to bet $290 to win just $100), while the Ohio State Buckeyes are surprisingly big underdog with +240 odds on a win on Saturday. The USC vs. Ohio State point spread is currently at -7 points chalk the Trojans with the total expected by Bookmaker set at 44 points. We also took a look at the point spread on this game at rival sportsbook Bodog Sports (official website), only to find out that the spread is not much different - also at -7 chalk USC. The payout on the Trojans covering this spread, however, is at -115, which is a good indication that by tomorrow we may see the point spread bulge a little bit, so lock it in early at either sportsbook.

 If betting on the USC vs. Ohio State, keep in mind that Southern Cal is 13-6 against the spread in its last 19 games and the total has gone OVER in 4 of Southern Cal's last 5 games. Meanwhile Ohio State is 1-6 against the spread in its last 7 games at home and the total has gone OVER in 4 of Ohio State's last 5 games. Trojans defensive end Armond Armstead and wide receiver Ronald Johnson are out indefinitely with injuries, while DT Averell Spicer remains questionable for Week 2 of college football. Buckeyes will play without linebacker Tyler Moeller this season and wide receiver DeVier Posey is listed as questionable following and ankle injury.
