Kedon Slovis passed for 264 yards and two touchdowns to help No. 20 Southern California record a 33-17 victory over Utah on Saturday night in Pac-12 play at Salt Lake City.

Tyler Vaughns and Erik Krommenhoek caught touchdown passes and Vavae Malepeai rushed for a score for the Trojans (3-0, 3-0 Pac-12). Parker Lewis kicked four field goals while Slovis completed 24 of 35 passes and was intercepted once.

The Utes committed five turnovers while playing their first game of the season after pulling out of contests each of the past two weeks due to COVID-19 issues. Jake Bentley came off the bench to complete 16 of 28 passes for 171 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions.

Cameron Rising started at quarterback for Utah and was 3-of-6 passing for 45 yards and one interception. He departed with an undisclosed injury after USC's Marlon Tuipulotu sacked him and forced a fumble at the outset of the second quarter.

Samson Nacua caught a touchdown pass and Nephi Sewell returned a fumble for a score for the Utes. Sewell also had an interception.

The Trojans held a 357-335 edge in total offense and shut the Utes out in the second half while snapping a three-game losing streak in Salt Lake City.

Slovis threw two touchdown passes and Utah committed three of the game's five first-half turnovers as the Trojans held a 24-17 halftime lead.

Malepeai scored from the 2 after Rising's fumble to give USC a 10-3 lead early in the second quarter. The Utes tied the score when Devin Kaufusi sacked Slovis and forced him to fumble with Sewell scooping up the ball and racing 23 yards for a score with 11:53 left in the half.

Slovis tossed an 8-yard scoring pass to Vaughns and a 10-yarder to Krommenhoek over the next six minutes as the Trojans moved ahead 24-10. Utah cut its deficit to seven when Bentley threw a 7-yard scoring pass to Nacua with 49 seconds left in the half.

Lewis kicked field goals of 24 and 43 yards in the third quarter to boost USC's lead to 30-17.

The Utes later reached the Trojans' 10-yard line but the 13-play, 75-yard excursion that chewed 7:42 off the clock ended without points as Bentley's pass on fourth-and-4 fell incomplete with 9:12 remaining.

Lewis booted a 47-yard field goal with 1:04 left to complete the scoring.

How Our Computer Picks System Works

Our software doesn't simulate sports results like our competitors, we track real bets.

We have exclusive access to a database with 10,000+ real bettors. Our software tracks all of these players in real-time.

Our proprietary algorithms then rank every handicapper in the database based on how well they perform by sport and bet type.

When our system identifies multiple sharps betting on the same outcome, our software automatically publishes the AI pick above.

We have zero control on the picks released by our software. It's simply using algorithms to generate the sharpest sports picks with the most value (+EV).

Why Are There No Computer Picks?

Our AI system generates quality picks with a proven return on investment (ROI).

We believe in quality over quantity.

Some days, there may be zero AI picks, as our algorithms haven't generated any picks with enough value to be released .

We recommend not looking at the volume of bets released by our AI software, but look at the results and profits generated.

If there are no computer picks listed here, we still have daily sports picks from the pros.
