Willie Nelson's On the road again should be the theme song for this series as the road squad is 24-5 ATS since '93.  Side with Oregon to cover as small dogs at USC Thursday.

Our Thursday night college basketball selection is on the Oregon Ducks plus the points on the road over Southern Cal.

Earlier this season, USC went up to Eugene and upset the Ducks 95-86 as 3½-point underdogs.  But that's par for the course in this Pac-10 series, as the road team is 24-5 ATS since 1993, including a perfect 15-0-2 ATS when priced from -1 to +6½ points.

Oregon, itself, is 12-1-2 ATS on the road at USC, and we'll back Ernie Kent's men tonight.  Take the points.

Free Pick: Oregon +5 (-110)
