Stanford vs UCLA Prediction & Pick
Stanford has won 12 of the last 14 in this series, but the Bruins won last year 35-24. Stanford is on a 1-10 ATS run in Pac-12 play. This season, Stanford has played the toughest schedule in the country, according to Sagarin ratings. The Cardinal rank No. 2 in the conference in pass defense and UCLA No. 3 in total defense.
But following a pair of close, low-scoring wins, Stanford enters this fray really banged up. The Cardinal are down to a third-string RB and their top WR remains out. Stanford is also -9 in turnover margin, which has hurt their production.
A letdown may be looming for UCLA off their first loss at Oregon last week and three straight high-powered emotional tilts against Washington, Utah and Oregon. The Bruins still project to exceed 435 yards offense in this game, but they will rely more heavily on their rushing attack.
The Bruins average 205 rushing yards per game and Stanford allows 6.4 yards per rush - among the worst in the country although better in recent wins. The Bruins have far more balance and pass for 293 yards per game with QB Dorian Thompson completing 73% of his passes with 17 TD tosses and 4 more rushing TD's as a duel-threat.
Final Score Prediction: UCLA: 35 | Stanford: 20

Stanford vs UCLA Best Bet

This total seems high considering it takes two teams to score more when posting this high of an over/under. Stanford may be forced to pass more, but still consider that the total was less in the UCLA-Utah game and the UCLA-Washington contests.
Stanford's injury issues coming out of the Notre Dame game have led to more struggles and less production. Last week, the Cardinal rushed for just 78 rushing yards vs ASU's sub-par run defense.
