Opening betting odds released for Week 9 action in the Pac-12
Road teams are favored in four of the Pac-12’s five games during the upcoming week.
Early point spreads and game totals were released for Week 9 action throughout college football on Sunday. Utah is a nine-point favorite for its Thursday night trip to Pullman to battle Washington State. Oregon, USC, and Arizona State are all double-digit favorites in their road games as well.
UCLA is the lone home favorite. The Bruins (6-1, 3-1 Pac-12) are a 15-point favorite for their game against Stanford (3-4, 1-4 Pac-12). Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. PT on ESPN. The Bruins are coming off their first loss of the season while the Cardinal has a two-game winning streak for the first time in over a calendar year.
Oregon, the team that just knocked UCLA off, is a 12-point favorite for its trip to Berkeley to battle the Cal Golden Bears (3-4, 1-3 Pac-12) at 12:30 p.m. PT. The Ducks (6-1, 4-0 Pac-12) are rolling, with wins in each of their last six games and 40 points scored in each game during the streak. Cal has only topped 30 points twice this season and will enter the matchup losers of three straight.
USC emerges from its bye week as a two-touchdown favorite over the Arizona Wildcats (3-4, 1-3 Pac-12). The Trojans (6-1, 4-1 Pac-12) will travel to Tucson looking to avenge their first loss of the season — a 43-42 defeat at Utah on Oct. 15. Kickoff in that game is set for 4 p.m. PT on the Pac-12 Network.
Utah (5-2, 3-1 Pac-12) is also coming off a bye week to face a Washington State team that has dropped three of four since Pac-12 play opened. The Cougars fell 24-10 to Oregon State on Oct. 15. They were also on their bye week this past week. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. PT on FS1.
Arizona State (2-5, 1-3 Pac-12) is the favored team for just the third time this season and the first since a Sept. 17 loss to Eastern Michigan. It’ll head to Folsom Field this week to face Colorado (1-6, 1-3 Pac-12) at 4:30 p.m. PT on ESPNU.
Oregon State and Washington will be on their bye weeks this upcoming week.
