The Pac-12 isn't the cream of the crop when it comes to college basketball conferences, but there are still plenty of competitive teams towards the middle of the standings. Tonight's matchup between the Oregon Ducks and the USC Trojans involves two of those teams. 


The Ducks are currently 2.5 underdogs according to FanDuel Sportsbook, and if you're looking to bet it, then it's a good idea to take a look at what some voices around the industry are saying about the game.  


Oregon vs USC Basketball Prediction

Sports Jaw

Sports Jaw believes the Trojans will come out on top at home. They point to USC's 13-5 ATS home record against teams with a sub .500 record as reasoning for going with the Trojans. 


Randy Chambers

The staff writer over at Sports Chat Place believes the Trojans will have revenge on their mind after they were blown out by the Ducks earlier in the year. USC has won seven of its last nine home games with an average margin of victory of 11.5 points.


ESPN BPI

ESPN doesn't have a lean on the spread, but they do give USC a slight 54.3-percent chance of getting the outright win over the Ducks. 

All three experts are going with the USC Trojans in some form. ESPN is predicting they win straight up, while Sports Chat Place and Randy Chambers like USC to cover the spread.
