UCLA vs. Cal Odds: Golden Bears Favored By Narrow Margin

As the UCLA Bruins get set to host the Cal Golden Bears at the Rose Bowl this Saturday, sports bettors around the globe are trying to decide whether or not they will put some money down on the Pac-12 classic. Although both teams have been in the shadows of their former selves this year, their might be something to the fact that this game may be worth betting on.

Oddsshark.com began the week with the Golden Bears as a six point favorite, while bodog, five dimes, bet online and top bet all went a bet lower with a five point spread. Both teams are rather evenly matched and are in need of a victory, so there might just be some factors worth considering in all of this.

UCLA is at home, a place they usually fare pretty well, while four of Cal’s top receivers will be out this Saturday for the Golden Bears, severely limiting their aerial attack. UCLA is also coming off of their worst win in a while, so the desire to bounce back with a W may loom large for the Bruins. Hopefully they can get it done.
