Bruins 2023 Schedule & Betting Odds
UCLA Bruins Football
The return to the college ranks has been a rocky one for UCLA head coach Chip Kelly, as he’s yet to recapture his past success with the Bruins. Last season was no exception, as their 3-4 record marked their third consecutive losing season.
With two of ESPN’s Top 300 recruits joining the Bruins D-line, maybe this is the year they turn around a defense that has lagged behind the offense, ranking in the bottom half of the Pac-12 with almost 30 points allowed per game last season.
See all of the Bruins' odds above, as well as their full schedule, against-the-spread (ATS) performance, depth charts for both sides of the ball, key injuries and more.
UCLA Bruins Point Spreads
The Bruins season worked out a little better for you if you like to bet on point spreads, as they posted a 4-3 record ATS. Point spreads are a popular bet one can make on either team in a college football game and are based on the margin of victory for the winning team.
A Bruins spread might look like this:
- UCLA +3.5 (-110)
- USC -3.5 (-110)
A 31-28 loss for UCLA is still a win for spread bettors since the three-point margin of defeat is less than the 3.5-point spread. Spread tickets on the Bruins would cash with any loss of three or fewer points, or an outright win. USC would cover the spread if it won by four or more points.
UCLA Bruins Over/Unders
With a potent Chip Kelly-designed spread offense and a middling defense, it would seem like betting on Bruins overs would be an easy way to cash some tickets. Over/unders, or totals, are bets on the number of points scored in the game. Since the total is set based on sportsbooks' expectations, however, the over was only slightly profitable (57% win rate) in 2020, as oddsmakers set the lines high for Bruins games.
For example, with a 65-point total, over bettors won in the UCLA vs. USC game last season, as the game finished 43-38 for a total of 81 points. Under bettors needed 64 or fewer total points. If the game had landed on exactly 65 points, it would have been a tie and all bettors on that number would have gotten their money returned.
UCLA Bruins Moneylines
While spread bets depend on the amount of the victory, moneyline bets are a bit simpler, as all that matters is which team wins.
While it’s simple at first, reading the odds can be a bit more complicated. It’s helpful to think in $100 increments, regardless of how much you plan on betting. Say the Bruins had a +150 moneyline against USC: If they win, then a $100 bet would pay $150. On the other hand, if they were -150 favorites, a $150 bet pays out $100.
UCLA Bruins Props
With a fast-paced offense, the Bruins are one of the most fun teams to bet on with player props. These are bets on how much of a specific statistic a player will accumulate.
For example, you could bet on WR Chase Cota to find the end zone or bet over or under on RB Brittain Brown's rushing yards. Many skill position players (and some defenders) will have a variety of props available to bet each game.
UCLA Bruins Futures
Oddsmakers are expecting Chip Kelly to have his best season in Los Angeles yet, with a preseason win total set at seven games for 2021. Betting on the Bruins to go over or under this number is a type of futures bet.
Futures include any bet that takes place over more than just one game, like odds to win the conference or odds on QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson to win the Heisman.
