BookMaker has the UCLA Bruins listed as 17.5-point favorites on the road against the Stanford Cardinal on Saturday night in week 8 of the college football season. Stanford has won seven of the last ten while UCLA has won two of the last three meetings. The Cardinal are 6-3-1 ATS in the last ten while the Bruins are 2-1 ATS in the last three games in the series. UCLA is 3-3 ATS overall, 1-2 ATS on the road, 3-1 ATS as a favorite, and 1-2 ATS in conference games while the Stanford Cardinal are 3-3 ATS overall, 1-2 ATS at home, 2-2 ATS as an underdog, and 2-2 ATS in conference games on the year.
UCLA is the better team this season, however, Stanford has been the better team in the series winning seven of the last ten while going 6-3-1 ATS in those meetings. I don’t look for the Cardinal to get the win in this matchup, however, as strong as they have been in the series I will be buying the .5 point and taking the Stanford Cardinals with the points when they host the UCLA Bruins on Saturday night.
Spooky Express Pick: Stanford Cardinal +18
