UCLA is 2-1 this season following a 48-45 loss at Memphis last week. The Bruins have are 1-2 against the spread on the year despite averaging 48.7 points per game. However, the UCLA defense is allowing 38.3 per contest. The defense has really struggled, giving up an average of 515.3 yards per game, including 275 rushing yards per contest. Offensively, UCLA has a great passing attack behind Josh Rosen, who has thrown for 1,283 yards and 13 touchdowns with just two interceptions. Darren Andrews is the leading receiver with 26 catches for 409 yards and six touchdowns.

Stanford is off to a surprising 1-2 start, losing to USC and San Diego State over the last two weeks. The Cardinal are also 1-2 against the spread, failing to cover in the two losses. This season, Stanford is holding opponents to just 23 points per game despite allowing 405.7 yards per contest. On offense, Stanford averages 34.3 points and 417.3 yards per game. The offense is being led by Bryce Love, who has run for 524 yards and four touchdowns. Keller Chryst has thrown for just 497 yards and four touchdowns.

Bet on UCLA vs. Stanford

Stanford is usually known for having a top-level defense, but the Cardinal haven’t looked great on that side of the ball. In the loss to USC, the Cardinal gave up over 300 yards to Sam Darnold. They face another great quarterback tonight in Josh Rosen. UCLA has been moving the ball just fine, it has been the defense that has been the problem for the Bruins. In a game that should have a lot of points, I think UCLA will be able to keep pace with Stanford just fine and cover on the road.
