Cal vs. UCLA: Golden Bears slight underdogs to Bruins

Ed Szczepanski-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The California Golden Bears are approximately field goal underdogs to the UCLA Bruins.

The California Golden Bears face the UCLA Bruins this Saturday afternoon looking to turn around their season. Cal is currently 1-4 after losing three straight games, while UCLA is 4-1.

Cal has lost to Ohio State, USC and most recently Arizona State at home. Pressure is mounting this week, and California is probably expected to be performing a lot better than the record despite the tough start to the season. The road doesn't get any easier when they battle a rising Bruins squad that just made the top 25 for the second time in three weeks.

UCLA is currently favored by 2.5 to 3 points for this week's game (depending on the sportsbook you look at), which seems like a narrow line until you consider how much the Bruins have struggled at Memorial Stadium. UCLA has not won at Memorial in over a decade, even when the Bruins have sported some pretty competitive teams. This figures to be one of their best chances to pull a win.
