Stanford vs. UCLA betting lines & odds

Steve Dykes

The Cardinal are favored by two points in what could be a preview of the Pac-12 championship game on Saturday at the Rose Bowl.

The Stanford Cardinal will visit the UCLA Bruins at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif. on Saturday as two-point favorites in a preview of what could be the Pac-12 championship game, according to OddsShark.com.

The Cardinal (9-2) are coming off a major upset win on the road vs. Oregon in Eugene and have been battle-tested in a hostile environment. The relatively quieter confines of the 9-2 Bruins' home venue should not be as much of a factor in Stanford's ability to come away with the win and beat the spread.

There is a lot at stake for Stanford, who with a win can capture the Pac-12 North title. The over-under is set at 52.5, and 58.5 percent of the action agrees that the over is the safest bet. 62 percent has moved toward Stanford covering the spread with a win over the Bruins.

Of particular interest will be UCLA's offense against Stanford's stout defense. The Bruins have scored 37.7 points per game in 2012, while the Cardinal have allowed just 16.9.
