College Football Picks Week 8 – UCLA Bruins Looking to Pull Off the Upset against Stanford


The UCLA Bruins visit the Stanford Cardinal this Saturday in a College Football Picks Game of Top 15 teams. Even though the UCLA Bruins are unbeaten and ranked 9th in the country, they are underdogs against the Stanford Cardinal who come in at 5-1 and ranked 13th in this week’s college football rankings. This would have been a matchup of unbeaten teams but the Stanford Cardinal were upset last week as they lost on the road against the Utah Utes.

Are the UCLA Bruins Ready? The UCLA Bruins have a chance to make a move into the national title picture in the next two weeks. They visit the Stanford Cardinal on Saturday and next week they go to play at the 2nd ranked Oregon Ducks in Eugene. “Now it gets fun,” linebacker Jordan Zumwalt said. The UCLA Bruins have one of the top quarterbacks in the country in Brett Hundley who threw for 410 yards in last week’s win over Cal. The win vaulted the UCLA Bruins into the Top 10 for the first time since 2005.

Series Notes -The UCLA Bruins lost twice to the Stanford Cardinal last season and have not beaten them since 2008.”We have been waiting for this,” sophomore receiver Jordan Payton said. “Stanford, man, we lost to them twice in one year. We know that, we remember that. This is definitely a big game for us and we’re going back up there.”

Game Trends

The Bruins are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 meetings in Stanford. The Bruins are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Bruins are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games. The Cardinal are 19-8-1 against the NCAA football odds in their last 28 conference games. The Over is 6-2 in the Bruins last 8 conference games. The Over is 19-9 in the Cardinal last 28 home games.

College Football Picks – I think the UCLA Bruins are the better team and will win this game outright so I will take the points. UCLA has that double-revenge incentive from the last two games of the regular season last year, including the Pac-12 championship game. Minor upset brewing in Palo Alto.
