2018 USC Trojans Betting Odds

NCAA Football Betting: The hiring of Clay Helton to the permanent job was met with some sneers from the USC faithful. But Helton became the first coach in program history to win at least 10 games in his first two seasons and led Troy to its first Pac-12 title with a victory over Stanford last season. The Trojans will need to rebuild their offense for another title run after their starting quarterback, leading rusher and top receiver all graduated to the NFL, but there is quality among the remaining players to contend for the South crown again in 2018.

2018 USC Trojans at a Glance

Trojans National Championship Odds: +4800

Trojans Odds To Win Pac 12: +421

Trojans Regular Season Win Total: 8.5

With significant roster turnover and a schedule that includes games at Stanford and Texas in the first three weeks, USC’s projected win total plummeted to 8.5 this season. But given how the rest of the Pac-12 South looks, Troy could be in a good spot to return to the conference championship game. Helton and his staff will need to find a replacement for Sam Darnold at quarterback and the likely candidate is Matt Fink, who is the only one of the competitors to appear in a collegiate game.

J.T. Daniels and Jack Sears will push Fink for playing time. Daniels was the Gatorade National Player of the Year last season. Ronald Jones was the featured back last season amassing 1,550 yards and 19 touchdowns. Replacing him is a trio consisting of Stephen Carr, Vavae Malepeai and Aca’Cedric Ware, who combined for 871 yards with each averaging at least 5.0 yards per carry. There are options in the passing game with Tyler Vaughns the leading pass catcher among returning players. He had 57 catches for 809 yards and five touchdowns a season ago.

The Trojans were among the best at pressuring opposing quarterbacks last season, finishing with 46 sacks to tie for the most in the country. They lose sack leader Rasheem Green but boast a talented front led by Christian Rector that will cause havoc. The Trojans ranked 82nd in pass defense last season and need to be better in the secondary. Defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast has the pieces for his best unit since returning to USC in 2016 and another South title is in their reach. But repeating as league champs is going to be tough.

USC is one of the most storied programs in college football history. The Trojans have won over 800 games in their history, claimed 11 national championships, 39 conference titles, have appeared in 54 bowl games and they’ve had the most players selected in the NFL Draft.

Joining the Pacific Coast Conference, which eventually morphed into the present-day Pac-12, in 1922, USC made an immediate impact. The Trojans won the first of their record league titles and defeated Penn State in the Rose Bowl to finish the year 10-1. By 1939 the Trojans would have four recognized national championships and six Rose Bowl victories without a loss. Prior to 1975 the conference did not allow its teams to participate in any Bowl game other than the Rose Bowl. The Trojans played in 20 of their 38 Rose Bowl games before 1975 going 14-6.

If there was a dead era of USC football it started in the late 1950s. From 1957 to 1961 the Trojans experienced four losing seasons and did not appear in a bowl. They broke out of that funk in a big way in 1962, capping an undefeated season with a Rose Bowl win and the program’s fifth national championship. Under John McKay, the program’s winningest coach, USC won four national championships and 127 games. The Trojans won back-to-back national titles under Pete Carroll in 2003 and 2004, though the last was vacated by the NCAA due to sanctions related to Reggie Bush.

Throughout the program’s history no coach had ever won 10 or more games in his first two seasons. Helton broke that spell with 11 wins in 2017 and got the Trojans their first Pac-12 title and first since 2008 when the team was competing in the Pac-10 Conference.
