Rose Bowl odds: Stanford favored by 6.5 points over Wisconsin

US PRESSWIRE

Stanford opened as a 6-1/2-point favorite in the Rose Bowl and the line has remained in favor of the Cardinal.

The Stanford Cardinal opened as 6-1/2-point Rose Bowl favorites over the Wisconsin Badgers and the Cardinal have remained favorites, according to the latest odds from OddShark.

Stanford remains a 6-1/2-point favorite in some casinos while moving to a 7-point favorite in others. The Cardinal were favored in 10 of their 13 games this season. Stanford went 8-5 against the spread in 2012 including 4-1 in its last five games. While Stanford has fared well against the spread, Wisconsin was just 6-7 against the spread this season. The Badgers, however, fared better as an underdog, going 2-1 against the spread when they were not favored.

While Stanford is likely to enter the game as the favorite, that may not bode well for the Cardinal. Stanford was 5-1 against the spread at home this season, but just 3-4 against the spread when playing away from Stanford Stadium. The positive for the Cardinal is they are 1-0 in games played in the Rose Bowl this season, knocking off UCLA 35-17.
