USC should be a -2 favorite against Loyola Chicago this March Madness tournament.

The 26-7 Trojans were beaten by UCLA in the Pac-12 semifinals Friday night.

Southern California covered around 48% of their games this season and truly struggled down the stretch covering in just three of their final ten games.  They lost three of their last four outright.

As a favorite Southern California is 121-22 (84.6%) Straight Up since 2016.  On the road as a favorite they are 25-6 SU over this time.

Against ranked opponents they are just 5-21 (19.2%) Straight Up since 2016. They are 1-4 Straight Up against ranked opponents this season.  The AP has the Ramblers ranked at #23 in the nation.

Loyola beat Drake to return to the NCAA Tournament.

Lucas Williamson had 18 points and 10 rebounds, Aher Uguak added 16 points and 10 boards in the 64-58 victory.

Neither team reach 40% shooting and both were 25% or less from the arc.

As an away dog, Loyola Chicago is 5-15 Straight Up (25%) since 2016.  They are 3-12 since 2018. The Ramblers have also had issues versus ranked teams, going 1-5 Straight Up since 2016.

USC would definitely have a bit of an edge in this one based on team trends, even with their poor form against ranked opponents.
