Stanford UCLA Betting Tips – The Cardinal Gets Its Pac-12 Title

Stanford Cardinal (8) @ UCLA Bruins (16) – Friday November 30, 2012 5:00PM EST

When the college football betting experts envisioned an exciting Pac-12 championship game, the Stanford Cardinal playing the UCLA Bruins is not what they expected. The Bruins finished the season 9-3 and ranked 16th in the country. Those are not terrible statistics, but they are hardly what most fans would expect from a team that is supposed to stand up to the Stanford Cardinal. The Bruins have defensive issues that could pop up in this game and really hurt UCLA’s chances. When a team plays an exciting offense like the one in Stanford, it needs its A-game from its defense.

The Stanford Cardinal finished the season ranked eighth despite logging a 10-2 record. The betting websites just got done watching the Stanford Cardinal beat up on the UCLA Bruins in the last game of the regular season. Whatever the Cardinal needed to learn to win the Pac-12 championship, it learned less than a week ago. Considering how powerful the Cardinal’s offense is and how adaptable the Stanford defense has proven to be, this game very well could be a repeat of the 35-17 beating that UCLA took last week.

Why UCLA Will Win

If the Bruins have one thing going for it then that would be the fact that these two teams played a few days ago. The Bruins have the unique pleasure of getting a re-do against a team that plays some pretty good football. The online sportsbook experts watched as the Stanford passing game threw right past the UCLA secondary. UCLA knows that it is going to need to create a potent pass rush if it wants to put pressure on quarterback Josh Nunes and the Stanford offense. This UCLA defense has shown the ability to shut down big passing games in the past. If it can do it again in this game, then it can win.

Why Stanford Will Win

Unfortunately for UCLA, the Cardinal also has a pretty potent running game as well. The Cardinal spent an entire game dismantling the entire UCLA team and turning its critical elements inside out. Whatever Stanford needed to know to beat UCLA, it learned before last week and it can bring that game plan out again for the win. Look for Nunes to have another big game and for the Cardinal to grab its Pac-12 title.

The Bottom Line

The Pac-12 itself is probably not very excited about this game. The fact that it is being played at 5:00PM on a Friday is also not very appealing either. The Cardinal may actually make this game more of a blowout than the game with UCLA last week. The Cardinal fans will just have to be patient for a few more days and then everyone can begin celebrating a Stanford Pac-12 championship.
Pick: Stanford
