Swinger’s 2019 College Football Record: 0-1 (-1.10 Components )
The Stanford Cardinal may spend the season’s week in the Pac-12 competitions, the USC Trojans’ home. Even the Cardinal notched a 17-7 victory over Northwestern in their season opener but they did not escape unscathed as Stanford quarterback K.J. Costello took a forearm to the chin shortly before the half causing him to leave the match, while blindside undertake Walker”Not So” Small sustained a dislocated knee and was out for the foreseeable future. Left guard Dylan Powell is also not predicted to go this week after he had been injured in Week 1. This leaves a decimated lineup, possibly without their starting QB, that will be a large setback to some Cardinal group.
USC won their season opener on Fresno State at the score of 31-23 but that wasn’t quite enough to pay the 13 1/2 point impost for everyone who backed the Trojans within their college football picks. As USC quarterback JT Daniels was missing for the season after suffering a torn ACL into his 27, it might have also been a Pyrrhic victory. This will require a change in signal-callers after heading 6-of-8 for 57 yards week after taking over for Daniels, death, with accurate freshman Kedon Slovis slated to take the reins.
The last time these teams met the Cardinal seized a victory as 4 1/2 point favorites in September of 2018. But, prior to this, USC had won the season to both contests and now have the luxury of advantage. But the wildcards are the quarterbacks with many rolling the dice on Stanford, presuming that Costello is going to be right back in the saddle because of this particular summit clash.
But I am siding with the Trojans based on the fact they are better equipped to put things on the board due to an offensive line that is complete, unlike Stanford’s where two beginning linemen on the left side of the ball is going to be sidelined. We are also getting worth to where they sit a one-point house favored here as the college football odds opened.
I am not expecting any aerial heroics from either side with both coaches seeking to grind out this one with their respective attacks. Reports about the USC freshman quarterback show that the child can deal with the strain along with the Trojans will continue to pound the ball and will be solid in the aid of the injured starter JT Daniels. Back the Trojans and money a ticket on Saturday!
Final Score: USC 24 — Stanford 21
