On Saturday, the UCLA Bruins (1-0, 1-0 ATS) invade LaVell Edwards Stadium to take on the BYU Cougars (2-0, 1-0 ATS); kickoff from Provo is set for 3:30 PM. The Cougs are ranked #18 in this week’s AP Poll, while UCLA narrowly missed out on the Top-25.
These two teams hooked up twice last season, with UCLA covering the spread for football bettors in both their bowl game and regular season match-up in Pasadena. HC Rick Neuheisel’s career at UCLA couldn’t have started any sweeter than it did on Labor Day night against the Tennessee Volunteers.
QB Kevin Craft overcame four interceptions to lead the team on two fourth quarter touchdown drives to send their game to overtime. The extra frame only produced one score, a Bruins field goal, to give UCLA a 27-24 victory. It was a horrible beat for NCAA football betting fans that had the ‘under’ on their ticket, as the game was 14-10 well into the 4th quarter.
It was also a sweat for UCLA bettors when the game went into overtime, as the football betting line of +7 suddenly came into question in spite of the fact that the Bruins were at worst even with the number the whole night. BYU played in one of the most controversial games of the Week 2 betting slate.
Leading 28-21 with just 0:02 remaining, Washington QB Jake Locker ran in a touchdown to put the Huskies a PAT within sending the game to overtime. Locker was flagged for excessive celebration, and the ensuing extra point was blocked by a host of Cougars.
BYU celebrated a 28-27 victory, but it was no consolation for their football betting followers who laid the 8.5-points on the college football betting line. The last-second score was enough to push the game ‘over’ the ‘total’, though. Sports-Gambling.com has BYU -8 and ‘total’ of 45 available to their football betting aficionados right now!
