Why Bet The Oregon Ducks
The Ducks (21-3 SU, 13-10 ATS) look like a great pick to get the road upset after seeing the way they pounded Arizona in their 85-58 home win over the Wildcats on Saturday.
Arizona has won two straight and nine of their last 10 games and placed four players in double figures in scoring in their win over the Wildcats, including Tyler Dorsey’s team-high 23 points.
Junior forward Dillon Brooks added 18 points as Oregon shot 65.2 percent from the field and made 16 3-pointers.
"That is the best game we have played in my three years here," Brooks said. "Guys were focused and confident in their shots. We hit 16 3-pointers."
Guard Casey Benson chipped in 13 points and center Chris Boucher added 12 as Oregon built its lead to a whopping 37 points at one point.
"It was getting ridiculous," Brooks said. "Guys were feeding off each other. One guy got hot and then another guy got hot and in this game five or six guys got hot."
Why Bet The UCLA Bruins
The Bruins (21-3 SU, 13-11 ATS) look like a great bet after seeing the way they destroyed their last opponent this past weekend. UCLA has also won two straight and nine of their last 10 including their 107-66 blowout win over Washington on Saturday. UCL got at least 20 points from three players including Lonzo Ball’s team-high 22 points.
High-powered UCLA shot blistering 60.6 percent (43 of 71) from the field and held Washington to 38.5 percent shooting.
"We played pretty good defense tonight and we were able to get out and run," Ball said. "It helps when we play defense. We’re a great team in transition, and when we can get out, we can put up points."
Oregon Ducks Vs UCLA Bruins Expert Pick
Oregon has won three straight and four of the last five meetings in this Pac-12 rivalry, but this time around, I’m going to urge you to back the high-scoring UCLA Bruins to hold down the fort at home against an Oregon team they match up very well against.
UCLA averages almost 14 points per game more than Arizona while allowing just seven more points per game than the Wildcats defensively.
I know the Ducks are 9-1 ATS in their last 10 games following a straight up win and 4-1 ATS in their last five road games, but UCLA is 4-1 ATS in their last five games following an SU win of more than 20 points while the favorite and home team in this rivalry has gone 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings.
I like the Bruins to get the narrow win in a thriller!
My final score prediction is UCLA 85 Oregon 81
