Online sports gambling optimism is high that head coach Rick Neuheisel is poised for a breakout sports gambling season after the Bruins finished 2009 on a high note. UCLA backed into their bowl game against Temple as they were 6-6 both straight up and against the spread and needed an Army loss in their regular season finale to get an invite.
The Bruins scored an impressive 30-21 online sports gambling win over the Owls to cap off the season on a positive note and with momentum heading into 2010.
Most everyone gambling in sports agrees that the Bruins could be a contender for the Pac-10 championship and should make a respectable bowl.
Quarterback Kevin Prince had an up and down freshman season but improved as the year went on. He finished with 1829 yards passing with a 6/7 touchdown to interception ratio with a completion percentage of 56.7%. Prince passed for more than 300 yards in 3 games.
Prince still needs a solid spring camp to keep a firm hold on the starting position for the 2010 season.
Kai Forbath is a major online sports gambling asset for the Bruins. The kicker was the 2009 Groza Award winner as the best in college football with 28 field goals in 31 attempts. Punter Jeff Locke, meanwhile, was a finalist for the Ray Guy Award as the nation’s best punter which gives the Bruins one of the top kicking games in the country.
Rahim Moore is one of the top defensive backs in all of college football and was a significant online sports gambling asset with 10 interceptions last year. The Bruins ranked 28th in the entire country for pass defense.
UCLA rallied after a poor 3-5 straight up start to the 2009 online sports gambling season with 4 wins and 3 payouts in their final 5 games. Recruiting has improved under Neuheisel and it is a reasonable online sports gambling expectation for a significant leap by the Bruins for 2010.
