The Texas Longhorns get the ABC spotlight on Saturday as they host UCLA and bettors could be backing them when betting college football.
The Longhorns are ranked in the Top 10 and they are solid favorites in college football betting online to handle the Bruins.
Texas is a 16-point favorite at Sbgglobal. The Longhorns have yet to lose a game but they still haven’t been overly impressive. They get another chance to show the country they are worthy of being a top 10 team as they host UCLA. The Bruins got a nice win last week 31-13 over Houston although that win doesn’t look nearly as good if you consider that Houston lost both its first and second string quarterbacks to injury in that game.
UCLA Overmatched – UCLA head coach Rick Neuheisel has pretty much said that his team is overmatched against Texas. He knows that the Bruins will need to play a perfect game and get some help to beat the Longhorns on the road.
UCLA Offense vs. Texas Defense – The Bruins are in real trouble when it comes to their offense against the Texas defense. The Bruins simply don’t have enough talent to score very many points against Texas. Texas defensive coordinator Will Muschamp will bring the heat on UCLA all day and the Bruins will be severely challenged.
Under the Total – This could be a low scoring game in college football betting online. UCLA is not going to score very much against Texas and the Longhorns offense has not been very good this season. Quarterback Garrett Gilbert is still learning his way and Texas is simply not that explosive. The offense had just 320 total yards in their win over Texas Tech. The trends help you with the under as well as the Under is 7-3 in the Bruins last 10 road games and the Under is 4-1 in the Longhorns last 5 home games.
If you are looking to wager on a side when betting college football then you should be aware that the Bruins are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 non-conference games and they are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games in September. The Longhorns are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games in September. The Longhorns are 2-6-1 ATS in their last 9 home games and they are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 non-conference games.
