They are 17.5 point underdogs in NCAA football betting at home to a UCLA team that is 1-5 in the Pac-10.
College football betting has seen Washington State be non-competitive in most games this season. The Cougars may not do well in this NCAA football betting matchup either as UCLA is coming off a big win last week against Washington. The Bruins are looking for two more wins to get bowl eligible. They should be able to get one of them here against a Washington State team that was pasted 48-7 at Arizona last week in college football betting. All of Washington States conference losses except one have been by 20 points or more. UCLA has the 36-18-1 advantage in the all-time series. Last year they routed the Cougars 28-3 in NCAA football betting.
UCLA is giving up 23 points per game this season so perhaps the Cougars can at least threaten with a backdoor cover in this college football betting matchup. Washington State quarterback Jeff Tuel was injured last week so it may be that Marshall Lobbestael gets the start in this game. It hardly matters since Washington State is averaging only 14.1 points per game. The defense for Washington State is one of the worst in the country as they are allowing a staggering 38.6 points per game.
UCLA has been a pretty good favorite in college football betting. They are 4-1 in college football betting in their last 5 games as a favorite. On the road though laying points they are just 2-6 ATS. UCLA is a dismal 1-5 in college football betting in their last 6 conference games. Surprisingly, the Cougars are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games as an underdog. The Cougars have another positive trend in college football betting as the Bruins are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 meetings at Washington State.
Looking at the total we see that the last six UCLA road games have all gone under in college football betting. 20 of the last 27 UCLA conference games have gone under. Four of the last five Washington State home games have gone under in college football betting. In this series, four of the last five games at Washington State have gone under in NCAA football betting.
