Prediction

Expect the USC Trojans to cover the +8.5 points spread against the Arizona Wildcats. Here's why:

Although USC has a less impressive record compared to Arizona, they have shown their ability to compete with top teams, as evidenced by their recent victory over Arizona. In that game, USC demonstrated their defensive resilience and offensive efficiency, which could pose problems for Arizona once again.

Moreover, USC enters this matchup with momentum, riding a four-game winning streak, including notable victories over Arizona State and Washington. Their recent performances indicate that they are peaking at the right time, which bodes well for their chances of covering the spread against Arizona.

On the other hand, while Arizona is undoubtedly a talented team, they have shown vulnerability, particularly on the road. USC has the home-court advantage in this neutral-site game, which could further level the playing field and make it easier for them to keep the game close.

Considering USC's recent form, their previous success against Arizona, and their defensive capabilities, they are likely to cover the +8.5 points spread in what promises to be a competitive quarterfinal matchup of the Pac-12 Tournament.

 

Pick: USC Trojans +8.5 Spread
