#10 Utah Utes vs. USC Trojans

This matchup may not have had much luster in the past, but slowly has turned into a must-watch event. USC has always been known for its elite play, but it has been the Utes that have gotten the best of the Trojans in the past. In fact, since joining the Pac-12, the Utes have won three of the five games played against USC.

This now rivalry game favors Utah (-3.5) over the Trojans. But, with a spread this close, bettors may have more luck on the moneyline. USC (+155) is the slight underdog at home, as Utah (-175) comes in ranked as a top-10 program.

All eyes will be focused on the matchup between Utah quarterback Tyler Huntley and the defense of the USC Trojans. In last year’s matchup, Huntley found every way possible to take advantage of the Trojans’ defense. He threw for 341 yards (on 22 of 29 passing) and four touchdowns, while also rushing for an additional 57 yards and another touchdown.

USC has struggled to stop mobile quarterbacks in the past and that struggle has also floated into this season as well. The Utes are projected to be leading at the end of the first quarter (-0.5) as well as at halftime (-3).

Assuming Utah scores first (-135), they should be able to find their fourth victory on the year. The game begins at 9 p.m. EST on FS1.

San Francisco Giants Vs. Atlanta Braves

The Braves have already clinched the playoffs, but their divisional victory has yet to be celebrated. Tonight, the Braves can secure their lead over the Washington Nationals and pop the champagne.

They take on the Giants, who have won four of their last five. Still, the game is being played in Atlanta, where the Braves are 48-30 on the year.

Mike Foltynewicz is getting the start for Atlanta, explaining why US sportsbooks only project 3.5 runs for the Giants. The Braves (-210) are the heavy favorite and are even being wagered on for their run line (-1.5, -115).

For the Giants (+195) to have any hope of killing the Brave’s celebration for the night, they will need a strong showing from Kevin Pillar. The outfielder has at least one RBI in the previous three games after going on a seven-game RBI drought.

The game begins at 7:20 p.m. EST and can be viewed on NBC Sports Bay Area (SF) or Fox Sports South (ATL).
