It isn’t always just fun and games on the field for the UCLA Football Bruins. Sometimes those games turn into even more fun for those who like to place bets or wager a few dollars. What does the betting line look like for the Bruins before they open up against the Texas A&M Aggies?

Now let’s preface all of this by saying we here at Go Joe Bruin do not condone illegal betting but there are plenty of new online betting sites that allow you to fully enjoy potentially making some money while watching UCLA Football.

If you need some help reading and understanding some of the more technical betting stuff here’s a great resource to bookmark this season.

The Bruins open up as a three and half, or four depending on where you look, point favorite over the Texas A&M Aggies when they visit the Rose Bowl on Sept. 3. In my humble opinion those points are due this being a home game for the UCLA Football team.

The over under for this game is set at 55 and a half points. A few years ago with Noel Mazzone calling plays for this UCLA Football team I would have bet the over. Flash forward to now and he’s entering his second year as offensive coordinator in College Station. It will be interesting to see how this young Bruin defense handles the potentially explosive Aggie offense.

Both teams have to answer a number of questions including concerns with the quarterback position. Josh Rosen will finally get the chance to prove that his arm is back and make his case to be the number one selection in the 2018 NFL Draft.

The Aggies have three options at QB and while each of them are capable players, two have yet to see game action while the third has been a long time backup.
