In seasons ago, a soccer match between the Stanford Cardinal and UCLA Bruins was cause to for amazement and excitement. As either side find themselves irrelevant from the Pac-12 races midway during 23, the 2019 campaign is not among these.
Injury updates supply a part of the reason, and the difficulty in their struggle Thursday night in Stanford Stadium the sports books have postponed posting numbers. A few shops that are testing the waters possess the Cardinal favored by about a touchdown in the 91st meeting between the foes.
As for excitement in this seasons matchup, Chip Kelly and UCLA have been currently enjoying the underdog role in hopes of ending the 11-game losing streak. The Bruins after held a commanding lead in this series, but the Cardinals current domination has cut down combined with three twists to a 45-42 record.
Last years meeting in Los Angeles was at least a fun game to see as Stanford scored a touchdown in the fourth quarter to keep its streak alive with a 49-42 decision. The final pushed on a lineup finishing s string of six Cardinal covers.
Together with the two teams combining for almost 1,000 yards of offense, the complete was easily breached by the 2018 clash. Four of the past five meetings in Stanford were alsoover winners.
Sitting at the bottom of the Pac-12 South Division, the sole real highlight for UCLAs year has been a wild rally for a 67-63 rally in then No. 19 Washington State four Saturdays past. The Bruins followed up with losses at Arizona and to Oregon State and expect the rest enables sophomore QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson to match up to this one after missing the loss from the Beavers.
Stanford had last week off in preparation for that one, and David Shaw is expecting that gives his QB time to recoup from a thumb injury which has sidelined him. Costello is formally suspicious, since Henry Hattis and Foster Sarell on the line.
Theres a slight chance of rain in the Palo Alto region on Thursday evening, together with the thermometer in the upper-60s at kickoff. The weatherman is anticipating a NW wind in the 12-16 miles range, which might come into play on field goal attempts.
Bettors need to find and I am comfortable laying 6 with my NCAAF pick that is free to the Cardinals.
