A Betting Guide To LSU Vs. UCLA Week 1 Matchup

  • The LSU Tigers are favored by 3.0 points and have a -150 moneyline.
  • The UCLA Bruins come back with +130 betting odds as the underdog.
  • The Total is set at 65.0 points with the UNDER being a -115 favorite.

LOS ANGELES – The UCLA Bruins will play host to the LSU Tigers on Saturday night as the home team looks to upset their ranked opponent. With the Tigers being No. 16 in the rankings, the lines may be a little surprising.

Which Team Will Win/Cover The 3-Point Spread?

The UCLA Bruins will take the field as home field underdogs against the LSU Tigers. The Bruins seemingly have the advantage of already having a game under their belts and also playing at home but online sportsbooks still believe LSU has the edge.

LSU Vs. UCLA Moneyline Odds

  • LSU Tigers -150
  • UCLA Bruins +130

Considering LSU is No. 16 in the AP rankings and UCLA is unranked, the line may be closer than expected. The two are only separated by a field goal, at least according to college football betting sites.

LSU Vs. UCLA Spread Odds

  • LSU -3.0 -110
  • UCLA +3.0 -110

The UCLA offense ran for 230.6 yards per game in 2020, the second-most in the Pac 12. Their rushing attack seems to have carried over as the Bruins put up 244 rushing yards in the season opener against the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors. The Tigers are likely the more talented team but if UCLA can control the time of possession with an effective run game, they could easily steal a win at home.

Betting The Total: 65.0 Points

During the 2020 season, four of UCLA’s seven games saw a total north of 65 points while the same can be said for six of LSU’s 10 games. The average score of a 2020 Bruins game totaled 66.14 points while LSU’s average total was 66.90 points. Sports betting sites still have the total set at, what seems to be, too low a number.

LSU Vs. UCLA Total Odds

  • OVER 65.0 -105
  • UNDER 65.0 -115

Not only is the total set lower than both teams’ average score from last season, but the UNDER is favored. If UCLA gets the lead and is able to rely on the run game to eat up the clock, the OVER may have a tough time hitting, but if LSU takes an early lead and the Bruins are forced to play catch up, things could change quickly.

The game will air on FOX at 8 p.m. EST on Saturday night.
