USC Trojans Players Exiting The Court

Sunday, November 27, 2016 6:14 PM GMT

While there's some enticing bets out there on this Sunday, there's also a ton of NCAA Basketball odds and we focus on the teams that have been delivering major profits for us and the readers. 

Texas A&M Aggies (4-1) vs. #14 UCLA Bruins (6-0)

We go right back to the Titan Gym in Fullerton, Calfornia where the UCLA Bruins have been outshining the competition. Next up for the Bruins are the Texas A&M Aggies. Can the Bruins keep up this pace and prove to be one of the best teams in the country?

 The T.J. Leaf Show

Freshman, T.J. Leaf is so talented that he's making the collegiate level look like "kiddie-land" at an amusement park. He's got the size, he can take high-pressure situations, and he certainly has the talent. Head coach Steve Alford has to be salivating at the thought of his son, Bryce Alford, playing along with this once in a lifetime freshman in Leaf and see how far that this UCLA Bruins team can really go.

UCLA is coming off of an 82-71 victory over Nebraska in which we predicted the cover and although Leaf only had 12 points in this game, he was 3 for 4 from beyond the arc to go along with 4 rebounds, 4 assists, and 2 blocks. For the season, Leaf is averaging a team-leading 17.8 points ,8.8 rebounds, 3 assists, and 1.8 blocks per game on 67.7% shooting from the field. Leaf is also committing just 1.3 turnovers per game. Look for Texas A&M to have a problem in dealing with this 6 foot 10, 225-pound freshman phenom.

They have been favorites in every game and covering. As the level of competition has become greater, the NCAA Basketball odds have lowered and they're a mere 4 point betting favorite against the Aggies. After a loss to USC, the Aggies have won 2 consecutive games including a come from behind 68-65 victory against the Virginia Tech Hokies. The Aggies once trailed by 17 points in this game and turned the tables to pick up the win as part of the Wooden Legacy Tournament.

 3-Headed Monster

The Hokies are a team that relies on their 3 key players in DJ Hogg (15.6 points, 6.2 rebounds, 3 assists, 1.4 steals), Tyler Davis (12.2 points, 7.2 rebounds, 1.6 blocks), and Admon Gilder (11.2 points, 5.2 assists, 4.6 rebounds, and 1.8 steals). What do these 3 players have in common? They're all 2-way players that can put the rock in the ocean and play outstanding defense. UCLA will be tested in this matchup.

I'm going to stick with UCLA as this is a team that's been very good to me and their key players are exceptional.

UC Santa Barbara Gauchos (0-4) at USC Trojans (5-0)

As we stick with the West Coast, the USC Trojans have been dominating their opponents while managing to stay undefeated. Is it only a matter of time before they become a nationally ranked basketball team? They'll have to get by the winless UC Santa Barbara Gauchos tonight to keep the dream alive.

 Matador Defense

In order to be a winning team, a team must have a balance of solid offense and defense and the Gauchos are really lacking in the defensive department. They've allowed 74 points or more in each of their four games this season while the offense hasn't been much better, shooting a dismal 37% from the field and 24.5% from 3 point land. The Trojans are heavily favored according to A+ Sportsbook, 5Dimes and for good reason, as the Gauchos have very little going for them and the Trojans should face very little resistance from a competition standpoint.

 

A Win is a Win

A possible reason for the Trojans not being ranked is the cupcake schedule that they've had thus far and they don't have a real legitimate superstar on their squad. This is a team that averages just 13 assists per game and that's not very good. What the Trojans do have are scrappers that aren't afraid to do the dirty work in Elijah Stewart and Bennie Boatwright.

For the season, Stewart leads the team at 15.8 points 7.2 rebound, 1.2 blocks per game and is very efficient from the free throw line. This could come in handy against a tougher opponent in a tight matchup. Stewart is coming off of his worse output of the season against SMU in which he scored 6 points. Look for a strong bounce back performance out of the junior guard against a weak Gauchos defense.

As for Boatwright, he's producing double figures in points and is also providing 5 rebounds per game, but his 27.8% shooting from the field need's a lot of work.

At any level, this isn't acceptable and if he's going to continue to hoist up 10 or more shots per game, he need's to do it more efficiently. As stated earlier, this is a good USC team, but not great and that's why they're not ranked. Luckily for them, they're running into a "trainwreck" in the form of UC Santa Barbara. Lay the points as USC will remain undefeated.
