As the UCLA Bruins gets ready to kickoff their 2012 season, the Rice Owls are looking to rain the Jim Mora Jr.'s season-opening parade at Owl Stadium this Thursday. And even though they'll be away from the comfy confines of the Rose Bowl, the Bruins remain big favorites to take their first game of 2012.
According to the folks over at Oddsshark.com, UCLA is favored by a spread of -16 over the Owls, while the over-under is 110. Most of the online betting sites are sticking with these numbers, though a few like 5 Dimes, Top Bet and Bet Online have pushed the spread to -16.5.
Kick off for this game is set for 4:30 p.m. PT with coverage on the Pac-12 Network.
