Cardinal 2023 Schedule & Betting Odds
Stanford Cardinal Football
The Cardinal got back to their winning ways last season after suffering their first losing record of coach David Shaw’s 10-year tenure in 2019, and they're looking to keep the ball rolling in 2021. Momentum is on their side, as they won their final four games last year after starting 0-2.
Oddsmakers, however, are not buying it. The Cardinal are currently being pegged as only the seventh-most likely team to win the Pac-12, and their over/under on wins is set at 4 games.
On this page you'll find a ton of information on the Cardinal's odds, as well as their full schedule, against-the-spread (ATS) record, key injuries and more.
Stanford Cardinal Point Spreads
The Cardinal were solid against-the-spread last year, as their 60% cover rate was profitable for bettors. If you’re unaware, spread bets are a way to bet not just on who wins the game, but also on the margin of victory.
Here’s an example of a Cardinal spread:
- Stanford -3 (-110)
- California +3 (-110)
If the Cardinal win by a single point, say 21-20, then they win the game but spread bets on them lose. For the Cardinal to cover, they need to win by four or more. California has the opposite route to an against-the-spread victory here, only needing to lose by two or fewer points. Of course, winning the game outright is also a "cover" for the underdog Bears.
Stanford Cardinal Over/Unders
Cardinal games averaged over 60 points last season, but unfortunately for bettors, sportsbooks had appropriately high expectations, with both the over and the under winning three games each. Betting on the over/under, or total, is a wager on the combined scoring of both teams in a game; which team wins the game doesn't matter.
Say the game against California has a total set at 51 points. If you placed a bet on the over, a 24-21 game doesn’t do it for you, as you'd need at least 52 points for your bet to cash. Under bettors are holding winning tickets here, as they would in any game in which the score adds up to 50 or fewer points.
Stanford Cardinal Moneylines
The most profitable way to bet the Cardinal last season was the moneyline. Beyond the fact that moneylines — bets on the outright winner of the game — won two-thirds of the time for the Cardinal, two of those wins came with big underdog odds. Since moneyline bets pay out more for the underdog, Cardinal bettors were up more than five units in just six games.
As a +244 dog against UCLA, a $10 Cardinal bet earned $24.40 for moneyline bettors, while you would’ve needed to bet $24.40 if they were -244 favorites to make $10 in profit.
Stanford Cardinal Props
Instead of betting on the whole team, you could choose to just bet on your favorite Cardinal player. These are called proposition (or prop) bets, and they’re wagers on how an individual player fares in the box score at the end of the game.
For example, you could bet over or under on RB Austin Jones' rushing yards, over/under QB Tanner McKee's completions, or WR Elijah Higgins to score a game's first touchdown.
Stanford Cardinal Futures
Think coach David Shaw can bring home a fourth Pac-12 title this season? You can bet on it with a type of bet called a future. These are any bets that take place throughout the season.
Some Cardinal futures in 2021 other than their odds to win the Pac-12 include over/under on number of wins throughout the season, odds to win the national title, and odds on players' stats over the entire season.
How to Bet on the Stanford Cardinal
Although California sport betting hasn't been legalized, state residents and visitors may have access to legalized betting in late 2022 or early 2023. Two existing sports betting initiatives have acquired the necessary signatures to appear on the Nov. 2022 ballot. Voters will choose between online sports betting or retail (casino) betting.
