BYU vs. UCLA Betting
Given the loss of its starting quarterback, is the public giving No. 19 BYU much chance when it takes on No. 10 UCLA on Saturday?
According to oddsmakers at MyBookie, UCLA is currently favored to win, as the Bruins are getting odds of -16.5 points to win. The over/under total is currently listed at 60 points. These two will meet on Saturday night at 10:30PM ET on Fox Sports 1.
When it comes to the public betting for this contest, the wagers are soundly behind BYU. The Cougars are currently getting 65% of the wagers with odds of +16.5 points at UCLA on Saturday night.
Despite a season-ending injury to Taysom Hill, the bettors aren’t concerned with what BYU can do on the road, especially when getting so many points. The Bruins have won two straight meetings with UCLA and BYU has been the underdog in each of its first two games, yet came out on top. Despite that, UCLA has been strong at covering, going 9-4-1 against the spread in its last 14 non-conference games and 8-3-1 ATS in its last 12 games in September.
