USC vs. Arizona State: Point spread and odds

Betting preview, including point spread and odds, of the Thanksgiving college football game between USC and Arizona State.

USC vs. Arizona State: Point spread and odds Great Thanksgiving for all football fans this year with a major college football game, which will see No.11 USC (8-2) battling the No.7 Arizona State (9-1) in a PAC-10 matchup. Sixth straight conference title is on the line for the Trojans and the Sun Devils will look to settle the score and remain atop of the PAC-10. But the odds makers don't seem worried about Arizona State and at the online betting firm Bookmaker USC has been listed as the favorite to win this Week 13 game with odds -160 and Arizona State will now be underdog at home with money line +140. At the online sportsbook Bodog Sports, the point spread on the USC vs. Arizona State is currently sitting at -3.5 points chalk USC with the total at 48.5 points. Keep in mind that Southern Cal is 4-1 against the spread in its last 5 games and Arizona State is 2-5 against the spread in its last 7 games when playing Southern Cal.

 After Oregon lost star quarterback Dennis Dixon and two games, USC has a good chance to jump on the PAC-10 race, but a win against the leader Arizona State is a must. But much is riding on this game for the Sun Devils, as well. A win against the Trojans and then Arizona on December 1st will guarantee the Sun Devils the PAC-10 title, and if Oregon trips once again - the Rose Bowl. Not to mention that statistically Arizona State has a shot at the Bowl Championship Series title game. At the end it will come down to who wants it more.

 Both USC and Arizona State have been struck by injuries but Southern Cal could be impacted more with DEs Trey Henderson and Kyle Moore still questionable for the game against Arizona State. Other USC player to miss the game against Arizona State include the wide receivers Jamere Holland and Travis Patterson, and Ts Sam Baker and Thomas Herring are also questionable for Week 13. Questionable for Arizona State are TE Dane Guthrie, DL Michael Marquardt, CB Travis Smith and running back Jarrell Woods. When the two teams met last year USC beat Arizona State 28-21.
