Our Betting Pick for Today - Betting on UCLA -12.5

Stanford is coming off a huge upset win at homa against Arizona. The biggest difference between this game and that one is the fact that Stanford will have to go on the road to pull off this upset. The Bruins are clearly the better team and will run away with this game.

Over Under Stanford vs UCLA (130.5)

With the over under in this game at 130.5, I look back on the previous matchup this season. The previous matchup saw 146 points scored, Stanford is a weak offensive team. The kry here is can the Cardinal get to 60 points? If they can the over of 130.5 should be able to hit. I will bet the over.
