UCLA Bruins +15.5
Texas Longhorns -15.5
Unfortunately for Franklin and the Bruins, the Longhorns defensive unit rank second in the nation, allowing just 206 total yards per game. Texas sophomore quarterback Garrett Gilbert, has proved adequate as a game manager, throwing for three touchdowns in three games.
Gilbert however, was careless in the Longhorns last college football betting lines matchup at Texas Tech. Although Texas came away with an ugly 24-14 victory, the young quarterback threw three picks in the game.p>
For Fortunately, Gilbert was able to keep his poise and throw a fourth quarter touchdown pass to Barrett Matthews, putting the Longhorns up ten and out of reach from Texas Tech’s potent passing attack.
NorthBet College Football Betting Tip:
The Bruins have lost 15 straight road games versus ranked teams, dating back to 2001.
The Longhorns are tough at home and their crowd will provide the fuel to ignite a defensive unit that should push Texas into a top 5 national ranking after this week.
NorthBet College Football Betting Pick: Texas (-15.5)
