UCLA BruinCalifornia Golden Bears @ UCLA Bruins 10/12/13 Pick: The argument could be made that the UCLA Bruins are one of the best teams in all of college football, and they are certainly the best team in the Golden State. They’ll try to prove it against a team that whipped them last year, the California Golden Bears at the Rose Bowl in college football betting action on Saturday night.

The Bruins are going to have to screw the pooch in a big way in this one if they are going to lose it. They’re 25.5-point favorites against the Golden Bears, while the ‘total’ is one of the highest of the week at 71.5.

Sports Betting

The home team has won nine of the last 10 games in this series, and that includes last year when the Golden Bears whooped up on the Bruins 43-17. You can bet that this UCLA team has a long memory for this, especially QB Brett Hundley, who was picked off four times on the day. Hundley wasn’t really able to get anything going on the ground or with his arm, and though he threw for 253 yards and two scores, it took 47 passes to get that far. This year should be a lot better for both of these teams, as the Bruins rank in the Top 5 in the land in total offense, while the Golden Bears rank in the Bottom 5 in the land in total defense.

You’d think that this is bad news for Cal, and it probably is. Head Coach Sonny Dykes really can’t think that he has a shot to win this game. However, with the way that the Golden Bears run offense, they are going to get 90 snaps in with this game. If they can do that and keep the ball moving just a bit with some regularity, they should be able to stick inside of this number. Unless UCLA plans on scoring 50 in this game, we aren’t so sure that it has the ability to cover such a tremendous spread against an offense that has the ability to put up 30 in every game that it plays.
