NCAA Football Betting: UCLA Bruins vs. Cal Golden bears

Two traditional Pac-10 powers will meet in Berkeley this weekend when the Golden Bears host the Bruins in an NCAA football betting clash.

UCLA (3-4 SU, 5-2 ATS) has covered four straight games for bettors against the NCAA wagering line after starting the season 1-2 ATS.  The Golden Bears (4-2 SU, 4-2 ATS) gave up 28 third quarter points in a 42-27 loss to Arizona which was their first Pac-10 loss of the season.

The Bruins haven’t been held in the highest regard this season, with the college football odds only having them favored against lowly Washington State over the first half of the year.

Last week against the Cardinal, they played an exciting back and forth game which they won on a touchdown pass from Kevin Craft to Cory Harkey in the last 20 seconds of the game to give the Bruins the 23-20 victory.

In the triumph, Craft played one of his best games yet completing 23-of-39 passes for 285 yards and two touchdowns with one interception despite being sacked seven times.  NCAA betting fans should be aware that after playing three of their first four games over the ‘total’, the Bruins last three games have gone under per the closing NCAA lines.

After holding the high powered Arizona State offense in check three weeks ago by giving up just 14 points, Arizona moved the ball up and down the field against the Golden Bears in a 42-27 win.  Their inconsistent defense along with their high scoring offense has led to four of their six games going over the ‘total’ by the college football gambling line this far.

QB Nate Longshore was good for the Bears in the win, spearheading a 425 total yard effort and contributing 218 yards passing and two touchdowns against one interception.  Last year in this game, California was down 23-21 with two minutes left but in position to win at the UCLA 24 before a pick-six resulted in a NCAA gambling 30-21 loss.

The NCAA line on this game has the Golden Bears installed as 17-point home favorites. Sportsbook is the place to bet this game and all the other Pac-10 action this season.
