Washington at USC odds, picks and prediction

The Washington Huskies (13-10, 8-5 Pac-12) and No. 17 USC Trojans (21-4, 10-4) tangle Thursday with an 11:30 p.m. ET tip-off at Galen Center in Los Angeles. Below, we look at the Washington vs. USC odds and lines, and make our expert college basketball picks, predictions and bets.

Washington lost 92-68 at home to current No. 4 Arizona Saturday. The Huskies — a team laden with veterans — are a fast group that relies more on defense than offense.

UW forces a ton of turnovers: prior to forcing just 9 against the Wildcats, the Huskies had forced 14 or more in three of their previous four games.

The Trojans held the Bruins to a 30.2% mark from the field in a 67-64 victory over current No. 14 UCLA Saturday and have won four of their last five games. USC excels in rebounding and defending the area in and around the paint. Southern Cal is 11-2 over 13 contests at Galen Center.

Washington at USC odds, lines, picks and predictions


USC 78, Washington 67

Money line

USC is the lean here, but F Isaiah Mobley — the Trojans’ leading scorer and rebounder — has missed the last two games with a concussion. If Mobley plays and a USC -575 price could be had, there is some leverage there. If not, PASS.

Against the spread

Over the last 32 meetings between the Huskies and Trojans, the favorite has gone 23-9 ATS.

The TROJANS -10.5 (-105) at home are worth a sliver of value (consider a partial-unit play).


Washington is a fast-paced, bad shooting team. The Huskies do well to get to the line and to create points off turnovers. They’re a veteran group that has been ripe for a run of late-season Overs (and the Over is 5-0 in their last five games) based on some expected regression to what would even be considered bad shooting.

Look for the run of better offense to continue: BACK THE OVER 139.5 (-110).
