Sun Bowl 2012 odds: USC favored by 10 over Georgia Tech

Harry How

The USC Trojans' passing attack will compete against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets' run-heavy scheme in the 2012 Sun Bowl.

The USC Trojans opened at 9.5-point favorites against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in the 2012 Sun Bowl, and the spread has grown to 10, according to OddsShark.com.

The Trojans could be without quarterback Matt Barkley, who is still recovering from a shoulder injury that caused him to miss USC's regular season finale against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Still, backup quarterback Max Wittek has receivers Marqise Lee and Robert Woods to work with for a passing attack that puts up 297 yards per game. Meanwhile, the Trojans will combat the Yellow Jackets' 313 rushing yards per game.

Georgia Tech's 34.5 points per game and USC's 34.2 points per game has led to the game's total to be listed at 64 points.

The Yellow Jackets and Trojans both have straight up betting records identical to their respective 6-7 and 7-5 season records. Georgia Tech, however, is 8-5 against the spread while USC is 3-9 against the spread on the season.
