Stanford vs. Arizona: Cardinal Opening Line Puts Them as Ten Point Favorite

As the Stanford Cardinal get ready for their first Pac-12 matchup of the 2011 season down in Arizona on Saturday, the betting lines for the game don't have the Cardinal as much a of overwhelming favorite. Oddshark.com went only as far as to make Andrew Luck and his boys a 10 point favorite over Nick Foles and his Wildcats, while some of the other better sites were slightly more forgiving.

Bodog.com joinied Oddshark with a 10 point spread for this game, although Bet Online dropped their spread down to 9, while Top Bet bumped theirs up to 10 and 1/2. Even though they all basically are around the same number, it shows that this game will really be the Cardinal's first tough game of the season after blowing out their first two opponents handedly. 

If I were betting this game, I think I'd go over just because the Cardinal are so balanced on offense, while Arizona still is yet to find it's running game this season. And even though the Wildcats will be very hungry after their loss to Oklahoma State, Stanford will prove too much for them, even with the home 'Zona crowd.
