UCLA vs. Washington State odds: Bruins favored by 2 touchdowns over Cougars

Oddsmakers are giving UCLA a comfortable cushion for Saturday's matchup against Washington State as the Bruins are currently two touchdown favorites.

Andrew Fielding-US PRESSWIRE

The UCLA Bruins are opening as 14-point favorites in their matchup against the Washington State Cougars this Saturday at 7:30 p.m. PT on ESPN2.

That line might be a bit conservative though, as UCLA is fresh off a 66-point outing against UCLA and the Cougars have averaged a mere 11.5 points in their last four games. Additionally, Washington State is in the midst of a six-game losing streak in which they've been giving up an average of 34.8 points a game.

The Bruins are currently in first place in the South division after easily defeating the Arizona Wildcats. They currently sit in the driver's seat for a spot in the Pac-12 Championship with games against USC and Stanford still on tap.

As for the Cougars, it wouldn't be surprising if they finished the rest of the season without a win, as they still have to face the Arizona State Sun Devils on the road before closing the year with their rivalry game against the Washington Huskies.
